    Hello, I recently installed the new Revit Archecture 2011, I knew when I installed that I would be pushing the limits of my old Pentium 2 with only a gig of ram, to the limits. The graphics card is a Nvida GeForce4 MX 440 w/AGP8X. 2010 RAC min. req.was 2 gigs ram but my old system ran it but barely. The new 2011 RAC needs min 3 gig ram. Well it installed but really missed up my resolution. I uninstalled the 2011 RAC and then went to work on the resolution problem. I noticed that the monitor settings were using the default plug & play driver. I reinstalled my Sceptre X20G-Naga3 driver and rebooted. It held the driver but will not let me adjust the screen settings to 32 bit and 1280x1024 pixels. I have tried all 3 hertz settings 60,70,75 and also tried setting the hardware acceleration to none rebooted same results and then back to full acceleration and rebooted.
    Every time I come back to the oversized graphics screen and its back to 640 by 480 pixels. I have tried updated the Sceptre driver but it reverts back to the plug & play monitor with the same low resolution screen that can not be changed. I have also tried another dell computer of the same model graphics card but had not better results.

    Anybody know of anything else to try or have I totally screwed up my old XP box? Running this forurm on my old pentium 2 laptop with Xubuntu. I really like the linux platform if it would run Revit I would totally switch over maybe one day.

    Any help will be greatly appreciated.
