Wrong screen resolution on VAIO VPCF11M1E [Fedora 13]
 
2 Attachment(s)
Hello, it's the first time I ask something there, but i've been searching for help the last 2 days and didn't found anything...
I just installed Fedora 13 (x86_64) on my vaio, and i installed nvidia 256.53 drivers. The problem comes when, after rebooting, nvidia-settings says that screen resolution is 1920*1080, but it shows like 1280*768.... I enabled twinview and plugged in my TV. Resolution there works well, so i think that is vaio screen's problem. There is another problem too. When nvidia driver is working, i cannot work in terminal mode (init3) because the laptop freezes, and some kind of white-grey cloudy image appears on screen.
The card is nVidia GeForce 330 GT M
My bug report is down there. If something more is needed, just say it. Oh, and, sorry for my english, i'm already studying it...:o
Thanks!

EDIT: I add a screenshot of my firefox window. I think you'll see better what i want to say
2nd EDIT: Boot Messages shows me this error message

Yes, but you are using ubuntu, don't you? I did it on ubuntu.

Try looking at there, maybe using "CustomEDID" option shoud fix your problem (even if you haven't got a sony vaio)
But Fedora....

My problem was solved. The problem is gnome-nvidia related. Don't know if that is relevant to your vaio and fedora ;)

Ok, hope my link helped. I will try to install kde and see if it works better than gnome. I'll keep investigating by myself.....
