NVidia GeForce 7400 Go (1280×800) How TO (Still under RND)

<To be Edited>
Current Scenario : NVidia Driver has been identified by the installation but the resolution is stuck with 1024×768 and the graphics is NOT accelerated  very sloppy interface.
NOT workable šŸ˜¦
Solution Hunting : looking into links to get a solution to get the NVidia Driver working (increase resolution from 1024×768 to 1280×800)

NOTE : Easy way to get the graphics working without the distortion(I had this – when you scroll a PDF or other window) @1024×768 is to Install NVdarwin after the installation.This will at-least have the Graphics working properly at 1024×768.
