Resolution was changed correctly with both nvidia and xrandr
xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default

redrawing issues, two resolution settings 960x600 and 840x520 as shown by xrandr -q not properly drawing.

xrandr did change the screen resolution, but it didn't always redraw the screen properly. I had to grab the top of the window with the mouse and move it around and this fixed it.

With the Nvidia GUI tool, the same thing happened where the screen didn't properly redraw at first. However the Nvidia tool would pop up a message asking if you wanted to accept the new setting or it would revert to the default in 15 seconds. Generally, when I clicked to accept the new settings the screen would redraw properly.

as per ramon - xrandr worked. Some minor artifacts but they were redrawn correctly after moving windows around. Nvidia gui tool also worked and did not display artifacts.

Changing resolution works with both xrandr and nvidia tool but screen is not refreshed. Same problem as described by kitano, vegancorr and requist.

xrandr, nvidia-settings, gnome-display-properties all change resolutions without problems.
