You can do this, but the second screen will appear a little fuzzy as the pixels will be interpolated. You will be telling xrandr to create a scaling factor for the second screen, so that the desired resolution is squished onto the display. In a terminal, enter the following command xrandr --output VGA1 --mode 1024x768 --scale 1.334x1 --panning 1366x768

Assistance much appreciated. I followed your guidance, reinstalling the driver, and still had the same issue. I decided to do a fresh install with 14.10 today and the problem looks to be resolved. The card is recognized properly and I'm able to adjust to 1920x1080 resolution through the advanced settings in nvidia settings. Thanks for the help!

Together with the latest proprietary nvidia driver we may also install nvidia-settings from the xorg-edgers ppa. This ensures the setting application matches our driver version. Then we may change the screen resolution from the XServer Display Configuration tab: Note that on installing from xorg-edgers ppa we should take care to only install the nvidia ...

You can use xrandr, though I recommend that you do not set your resolution to something higher than what your monitor can handle. xrandr with no arguments returns information about your current displays: mgodby@mg-ws1:~$ xrandr Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 3200 x 1200, maximum 16384 x 16384 DisplayPort-0 connected primary 1600x1200+0+0 (normal left ...

The "VBoxManage setextradata global GUI/MaxGuestResolution any" command appeared to work previously, that is to say it didn't throw any errors. Installing guest ...

This is how I got my ASUS PB278Q to work: In the terminal: $ cvt -v 2560 1440 40 2560x1440 39.96 Hz (CVT) hsync: 58.98 kHz; pclk: 201.00 MHz Modeline "2560x1440_40.00" 201.00 2560 2720 2984 3408 1440 1443 1448 1476 -hsync +vsync $ xrandr --newmode "2560x1440_40.00" 201.00 2560 2720 2984 3408 1440 1443 1448 1476 -hsync +vsync $ xrandr --addmode ...

It seems that the laptop is mirroring the TV's display. One solution could be is to open up the display settings in Ubuntu's settings and uncheck the mirror displays. Then disconnect, reboot if necessary (I.e. if there is no perceivable change) and connect the HDMI cord again.

“Preferred Screen Modes” might be the Problem I assume that your monitor reports the high screen resolution as being preferred. Now you would like to override this default preference. See my answer to a very similar question for details on how this can be done. I had the opposite problem: I always got a lower screen resolution (1280x1024) than the one I ...

One way to do this is with xrandr. Assuming your native resolution is 1366x768, you can emulate a larger screen by running the command 'xrandr --output LVDS1 --mode 1366x768 --scale 1.50x1.50 --panning 2049x1152'

The typical way would be to solve this with a custom modeline that defines how the graphics driver should communicate with the panel. How to add display resolution fo an LCD in Ubuntu 12.04? xrandr problem Contrary to suggestions for installing proprietary drivers, this would probably work best with the open source drivers.

After doing this reboot, ...

I've figured out what was wrong after trying a few things. I had to plug both monitors into the same kind of port, on the same graphics card. I had a hard time digging up the cables at home but once I got my hands on a pair of HDMI cables, I was able to set up the monitors correctly without much trouble. It seems obvious now in retrospect but this didn't ...

I have found a solid answer on another branch of StackExchange server(s). It's a rather complicated procedure and I have not tried it yet. Also it seems to not apply to the (virtual )terminals( -- Those under Ctrl+Alt+F1...F6), which is to be verified.
