Incorrect screen resolution with NVIDIA drivers
My Samsung screen resolution is 1920x1080. Ubuntu 12.10 under system settings displays it only allows four options 1360x768 being the highest. My video card is a G84(GeForce8600GT). There are 4 additional drivers available the all work but don't change the resolution. The nouveau driver caused the screen to flicker evert few seconds.
I also looked in NVIDEA X Server settings but again the highest resolution is 1360x768 (it says NVIDEA Driver version: 304.4).
I'm not sure which is leading - System settings/Display or NVIDEA X Server settings.
Because the card doesn't have a VGA port and the screen interface is VGA I have to use an adaptor to convert from DVI to VGA
Its a real shame because I have gone for it and wiped out Windows! Hooray!
Any clues welcome!
