Am a newbie on ubuntu and have tried to get my graphics working with ubuntu oneiric without success. My Monitor is Unknown I have installed all Ubuntu preffered drivers but nothing has changed yet. My Video player has green pictures My monitor unknown compiz effects dont work

my specs are; nVIDIA Quadro NVS 135M

I have also tried to install manually the .run drivers from nVIDIA without success.


My dad's got the same laptop.

Just install the NVidia driver the "Additional hardware drivers" dialog recommends you. After that, search in teh dash for NVidia and something like NVidia X configuration utility should pop up. Open it.

When you install the NVidia drivers on Ubuntu, you've got to use the tool just mentioned to configure your monitors, not the one included by default.
