Resolution changed to 640x480 and cannot be altered - xecutionx - 2012-05-05 18:29

Hey guys, I've been running xbmcbuntu for a little while now without issue. Today I turned on my HTPC, an old Revo 3600 (atom + ION), and discovered that my resolution was changed to 640x480. Running the command xrandr states that the maximum resolution is 640 x 480 so something is up. I attempted to update the Nvidia driver in hopes that the problem would fix itself to no avail. Any ideas on how to proceed? Thanks.

In Nvidia X Server Settings, I cannot access the X Server Display Configuration and it throws the error "nvidia-settings currently does not support scanout screens..."

what version of the nvidia drivers are you using?

You may want to consider adding the x-swat repo to get the newest drivers.
