    im new to wubi i just installed it and the problem is that my resolution is 800x600 only, i want it to be 1024x768, it is only at invidia xserver wherein i can change my screen resolution to 1024x768. but when i restart its back again to 800x600.

    and when i went to invidia x server to change again the resolution, i cant run it..

    things i tried:

    ezekiel@ezekiel-desktop:~$ sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg
    [sudo] password for ezekiel:
    dpkg-query: parse error, in file `/var/lib/dpkg/status' near line 2 package `xserver-xorg-input-vmmouse':
    `us: i' is not allowed for first (want) word in `status' field
    /usr/sbin/dpkg-reconfigure: xserver-xorg is not installed
    ezekiel@ezekiel-desktop:~$

    sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop

    xserver-xorg-input-all: Depends: xserver-xorg-input-vmmouse but it is not going to be installed
    E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).

    i went through the installation guide which is enable nvidia

    """Go to System->Administration->Hardware Drivers and check the box to enable the restricted drivers for your NVIDIA card if the option is provided."""

    but when i enabled it something like "broken error" appeared then there was a download of 5mins then the result after that was not all changes appied and still the nvidia is not in use.

    --
    """The Hardware Drivers tool may not work properly on machines that have previously used third party tools like 'Envy' or manual installation to install previous drivers. You should remove those drivers before attempting to install using the built in tool."""

    do i have to remove all video device so that i can reinstall all?

    as it says use the broken filter to find the bad package and either uninstall it and reinstall it and try to install nvidia drivers, if that doesnt work just uninstall the bad package and install the nvidia drivers then reinstall the bad package

    post your apt sources file

    also try sudo apt-get check -f or is it sudo apt-get -f - might even just be sudo apt-get check (i dont use ubuntu so doing this from mem when i tried it:))

    this should try and fix deps or you could try dpkg --purge , and then try to reinstall it, it should pick up the dependencie and install it

    I had problems with the nvidia drivers on my PC as well with ubuntu. I disabled the open hardware drivers, checked for updates, installed them, and enabled the drivers again. rebooted and problem was solved.
