I have 2 options 800x600 and 640x480. It says my monitor is not detected and I have black bars around the side of my screen. My native is 1920x1080.

Wow how did you get Linux 10.10? Last time I checked the latest was 2.6.39-rc1. :|

Seriously though, did it ask you to install proprietary drivers?

assuming that you mean Ubuntu 10.10, clock on system > administration > additional drivers. and install whats there video drivers.

I'm still a Linux noob but that means that another application is using the apt-get lock so you can't install it right now, what I do when another application is using the yum lock on Fedora is reboot and then install the thing as another application won't be using the apt-get lock. I'm sure there is an easier way but I'm a noob

Are you installing anything at this moment? Outside of attempting to install your GPU drivers?

Yes I'm installing all the updates right now. So once they finish, reboot and try the driver thing again? Btw, I appreciate all the help so far.
