I'm using a Leadtek Winfast A340 AGP 8X graphics card (NVIDIA Geforce fx 5200) and a monitor that has a resolution of 1280x1024. Without installing additional drivers the available display resolutions are 1024x768 and 800x600. If I activate an NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver, e.g. version 173 which was listed as recommended, only 640x480 is available.
Is there any way of activating, my using an alternative driver or other means, a 1280x1024 resolution option which matches the monitor? I've only been dabbling in Ubuntu this last week so an answer suitable for a novice would be highly appreciated!
