Need for speed will install correctly and start up, but after the player selection screen it will crash to desktop and won't change screen resolution back to what it previously was.

I'm Using:
Ubuntu 10.04

GeForce 8400 GS with NVidia drivers

Any ideas on how to get it to work are much appreciated.

1- Open your terminal.
2- do the next command:
xrandr -q
then according to the result, comes the next command:
xrandr --output HDMI-0 --auto --dpi 96 -s 1920x1080
But change HDMI-0 and 1920x1080 for your monitor imput type and the resolution you want.
You can also open in nautilus:
then open the script of the game and add two lines at the end of the script:

command xrandr --output HDMI-0 --auto --dpi 96 -s 1920x1080
(remember change the output type, according to the cable that you are using to connect the monitor with your Video Card, and the desktop resolution that you use)
That's all. Enjoy it. :)

How exactly did you install it?

You are using a VERY old version of Ubuntu, and Im willing to be a very old version of PlayOnLinux. Upgrade both, and Ill be it will be fixed.
