How to set resolution higher than 800x600 on HP HDX18 laptop?
Hi all, I can't get my resolution higher than 800x600 on a nvidia GT130. I have a HP HDX 18 laptop. I couldn't install 64studio 2.1 because it didn't recognize my BlueRay/DVD/CD-ROM player. So I installed 3.0beta3. Installation was smooth, except that 64studio runs in a 800x600 resolution, while the in-build nvidia GT130 graphics chip can go up to the display's native full HD resolution of 1920x1080 (binary nvidia driver on Kubuntu 9.04). By reading these forums I understand that the binary driver can cause problems (which might explain why UbuntuStudio 9.04 is unstable on this laptop: random crashes of Rosegarden). And since I want to use this laptop for music (MIDI and audio) I don't need fancy 3D effects. Just a higher resolution and 2D accelleration would be great. So I would like to use the "nv" open source driver. I don't know how to install that, even after reading this and Ubuntu's forum and Googling. I tried to install nv by using Envy, but Envy only gives me options to install the binary drivers. I tried xrandr to add a new mode and setting the resolution to this mode, but xrandr says it cannot find the new mode. Help would be much appreciated, since I would love to give 4studio 3.0 beta 3 a try. TIA, Maarten
