An option that might help that just regenerates your xorg.conf file is to boot into recovery mode. I believe Ubuntu gives you one in GRUB (Linux Mint does). So when you boot up your system select your current kernel (recovery) and then go down to "FailsafeX" and hit enter. Then select the option "Reconfigure Graphics" and then "Use default (generic) configuration." That'll give you a brand new xorg file if you want to just get back into Linux incase you installed the wrong drivers (for example if I install the wrong NVIDIA drivers on my laptop). You can then reinstall the drivers once you start back up if you'd like.

How do I edit this file to include 1680x1050 resolution?

Section "Device"
Identifier "Configured Video Device"
Driver "fbdev"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Configured Monitor"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Monitor "Configured Monitor"
Device "Configured Video Device"
EndSection

Thanks!

I think it could be added in one of two ways. You could try either: gconftool-2 -g 1680x1050

or modify this part of your xorg.conf (back it up first, just incase)

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Monitor "Configured Monitor"
Device "Configured Video Device"
SubSection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1680x1050"
End SubSection
EndSection
