It is, another 'How to …’ and again on the nVidia graphics, the difference is that this works perfectly for me (not both Debian and Ubuntu do not).

The first recommendation is to visit the site download the drivers NVIDIA, choose the model of the card, OS (in my case 32-bit Linux) e a linguagem. A option 2 não works for Linux. Click DOWNLOAD, copy the link address that is on the button AGREE & DOWNLOAD (something like

Now you can modify the resolution and other advanced settings for the graphics card by NVIDIA X Server Settings utility that is in the System Tools menu (System Tools).
