I am sort of new to Ubuntu and have an nVidia GTS 250 video card and two monitors: a Samsung and a Dell. In the display setting I have the Samsung show as Samsung monitor and the Dell as unknown. The monitors are the same size, I can without any problem set the Samsung to 1280x1024 but I seem to be stuck on the Dell monitor. I've tried
xrandr to no avail.
These are the drivers that I have installed (I opened software center click on edit-> software sources and Additional Drivers tab):
It seems to me that no matter what I do, I cannot set the right resolution for the Dell, while the Samsung monitor works without a problem.
My Samsung monitor is plugged into DVI via an adapter, where is Dell goes straight into VGA port.
After one of the community users here suggested to switch to proprietary, tested driver I've finally got the right resolution, but now everything is blurred. here is an example: blurred display
when I hover over blurred area it becomes sharp and readable.
Any help is much appreciated.
