[Regression] Wrong resolution on external monitor from >185.19
 
I have problem with an external monitor (LG M227WD) on VGA & Nvidia 9400M. Before 185.19 no problem to set the max resolution (1920x1080), but with every release >185.19 I can set as max only 1680x1050.

Greets, ercoppa.

Please see the forum sticky posts about how to generate a bug report with a verbose mode validation log.

I am sorry. I have attached the log.

I'm afraid your bug report is missing the verbose mode validation log that I requested. Please make sure you started X with the command "startx -- -logverbose 6" or enabled the "ModeDebug" option before generating the bug report.

However, there is one clue in your bug report file: the driver first started with the mode "nvidia-auto-select" mode, and then later switched to the metamode "DFP-0:1280x800+0+0,DFP-2:1920x1080+1280+0". Did you do that intentionally? If not, it's possible that your desktop environment is changing the screen resolution after you log in. This is typically a problem with GNOME desktops.

Thanks for your help.

If I attached the VGA cable to TV, in nvidia-settings I have only:

But from disper:
Code:

Yes, I do that with:
Code:

disper -e
but disper return an error:
Code:

unrecognised scaling value for DFP-0 from nvidia-settings: 131073
Some minutes and I give you the verbose log :)

Verbose log (I hope).

Greets, ercoppa.

Some of those resolutions exceed your hardware's capabilities:
Code:

(WW) Oct 05 20:58:20 NVIDIA(GPU-0):    BestFit Centered ViewPort 1920x1080 exceeds hardware
(WW) Oct 05 20:58:20 NVIDIA(GPU-0):        capabilities.

Does disabling DFP-0 or lowering the screen resolution allow the 1920x1080 mode on DFP-2? You could also try adding Option "ModeValidation" "NoExtendedGPUCapabilitiesCheck" to /etc/X11/xorg.conf, but please be aware that that option is not officially supported.

Yes, if I disable DFP-0 (I use disper -S), I can have 1920x1080 on the external monitor without problems.

Can be dangeorous?

The strange thing is with <=185.19 I have no problem :(

Not dangerous -- it can't damage your hardware --, it's just possible that the screen might flicker or display the wrong thing sometimes. That check was added in recent drivers, so that might explain why older drivers allowed that mode.

Thanks AaronP, you are very helpful, I appreciate. I try this option :)
