Hi, this seems to be an old and very waring issue that im suffering from.
I'm running Nvidia 4400 SE. In the earlier version of Ubuntu 8.04 the
setting worked fine, but when the later version came out every thing changed
and the screen res was to put it mildly....crap. there were plenty of work
around but in the end it was the same. It was supposed to be fixed in 9.04,
but its still the same..... not sure what those guys at Ubuntu are doing,
but they seem to be forgetting some of the legacy stuff.

Kind Regards
