I am seeking help concerning my resolution. I have a Geforce SPARKLE 6600 LE card with nvidia driver 304.64, current for my card, installed with an HP w1707 monitor on a compaq presario PC, 32bit system. Before I installed the driver, I still had the resolution problem, which is that it does not offer me all the resolutions my monitor and GPU support. I only get a very ugly 640x480 input.

I have tried all that I could think of. xrandr gives me this;

Screen 0: minimum 8 x 8, current 640 x 480, maximum 4096 x 4096
VGA-0 connected 640x480+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 0mm x 0mm
640x480       59.9*+
320x240       120.1  
DVI-I-0 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
TV-0 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
DVI-I-1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)

But on Linux Mint and Windows with the same drivers and card, I get 1440x900. I'm also getting weird black screen blinkings whenever I log into Ubuntu, and when I boot into Ubuntu I get a white bar code screen where I cannot see the text or the Ubuntu logo. I also cannot get OpenGL to work despite my card supporting it.

Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
