comment Size 1280x800 not found in available modes?
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"

comment SSH to open GUI on target machine?
he should make sure the question is clear. :P maybe this is what he wants, maybe he wants what you said. xpra will work for him even if X forwarding over SSH would have been enough.

comment Television on Linux with TV-Tuner? How can I find a way to use it?
well you have to scan. i think kaffeine can do that too. there should be guides online if you google for it using the right keywords

comment iso image is not getting burned properly!
you need to make yourself clear. what do you mean by some cd's dont show up anything? are you saying that this machine can't show other cd's either? what do you mean by it shows only the iso file in it? are you saying that it shows the ISO file when you try to check the contents of the CD after burning?
