comment Size 1280x800 not found in available modes?
okay, but since the resolution changed, it's a sign that the xrandr stuff is working. the examples in the linked article used 1280x1024, did you do it with that resolution or with 1280x800? to do it with 1280x800 , just copy from the ModeLine i posted (only the second line, and excluding the word "modeline"). it should be the same count of numbers. maybe your monitor manual says what its native resolution is, though?

sorry if i'm confusing you. the three commands from the linked arch wiki article would be quite easy to try though, i think it's definitely worth it.

yes, nvidia-xsettings is a terminal-command, but it should open a window. if you don't have nvidia-xsettings, i don't think you ever had the nvidia proprietary driver. how did you get it? from nvidia's website?

also, you should realize that the three solutions i suggested are not meant to be tried all at once. if the xrandr-stuff works, there is no reason to stop using the nvidia driver.

after renaming xorg.conf, you should make sure you know how to rename it back using the console. when you learnt how to do that, reboot the machine and you should be using the old drivers (not nvidia's). if you don't get graphics after rebooting, you can move the backup back into /etc/X11/xorg.conf .

Try to see if reducing the cache size in Tools->Preferences->All->Input/Codecs helps.

ok, try nvidia-xsettings or adding new resolutions as explained in the updated answer.

I told you one way to fix the resolution: stop using the nvidia driver.

if you lower the bitrate, it might very well be faster. try changing the "800" to "300" and the "128" to "48"
