- Download Version 13.2
- Installation Quick Start – shows option to update installation in these instructions however it does not match what I saw with V13.2. With 13.2 I had to select "UPDATE" from a differnent screen that almost looked like a cmos setup screen. I got to this screen after I backed out of the original new install screen.

I connected my Ubuntu laptop to an external 24 inch monitor. I then tried to set the resolution to a level appropriate for a 24 inch monitor: 1920×1200. However when I looked in the settings the highest resolution was quite low. I had to add additional resolution levels manually.

- NVIDIA Quadro NVS 160M in the Dell Latitude E6500 – this will update the drivers I think. Rebooting to find out! The correct resolutions did not show up in the config list
- NVIDIA 310.19 Drivers Released How To Install It In Ubuntu 12.10/12.04 Tried this.
- Ubuntu Screen Resolution everything page
I followed the procedures detailed in the linked articles. When I tried 1920×1200 resolution with 60Hz frequency it did not show up in the configuration gui list. It must have been illegal. When I changed to 70Hz it did work. Note that it is important to generate the mode line individually for each resolution/frequency combination. I did a bonehead thing and reused the line for the 1280×1024 for the 1920×1200 mode and of course that did not work.
The changes made are not permanent and upon reboot will be lost.
I was unable to complete the fix. I suspect it will return so I am storing my research links here.
