    So I've been trying to install the latest NVIDIA ION drivers on my 9.04 Ubuntu setup because it's not recognizing my HDTV and not allowing 1920x1080 resolution.

    I've followed the instructions on how to kill X but then it just kicks me to a blank black screen that doesn't respond to ANYTHING I type in.

    Any help?

    Nvidia drivers always screw up my super ballin 21" CRT.

    So I don't bother. But my computer machine does suck.

    Well I am using this as my HTPC so 1920x1080 is kind of important. Anyone know how to do this?
