So, yesterday I installed Ubuntu on my laptop (1920x1200), which I mainly use docked with a second monitor (ViewSonic VA720, VGA, 1280x1024). At first the second monitor wasn't detected at all, so I installed the Nvidia-313 driver (I am currently running the Nvidia-310 driver, figured I'd see if it made a difference; it did not.) Well, the monitor is now detected, however the native resolution is not an option. It only allows the display to work in 1024x768.
I've tried creating a new mode in the terminal under 'xrandr', however when I try adding the mode to my monitor (VGA-0) the output is:
X Error of failed request: BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
Major opcode of failed request: 140 (RANDR)
Minor opcode of failed request: 18 (RRAddOutputMode)
Serial number of failed request: 31
Current serial number in output stream: 32
I've tried editing my resolution in 'Nvidia Xserver Settings', however when I set the 'ViewportIn' and 'Panning' to their proper values it won't allow me to change the value of 'ViewportOut'. I then end up with this.
- My GPU is the Nvidia Quadro FX 770M; any more information that would help will happily be provided, just ask.
