After adding this repository, the driver should be automatically selected and installed. Reboot and change the video settings to the correct resolution.
PS: the driver is the same for most of the newer nvidia cards
I had a similar problem with my Compaq Presario. My problem is that my monitor has a non-native form factor, i.e., 1280x800. The way I fixed it was to login as root and launch the program “nvidia-settings”. There is a tab marked “X Server Display Settings”. There are pull down entries for resolution, color depth, and monitor sync. Save the changes. Examine /etc/X11/xorg.conf to verify that the changes are there. Reboot.
Mmmh think after enabling the nvidia repository and installing the driver the first time it boots up it doesn’t even come up with a GUI but commandline?
In there you can do a sudo nvidia-xconfig command followed by a sax2 -r command, select the proper settings, test/save. sudo reboot
If it starts up normally you might still need to execute those commands, at least they wont do any harm.
