260.x drivers don't work with external display with ubuntu 10.10 and Quadro FX 3800M

With the older 256.x series external display works fine, but it's little suspicious solution as the driver requires the ignoreABI option. When trying to enable external monitor for mirroring both display graphics become distorted and the only way to get back is to boot the x server without the external display setting.

With 256.x drivers the performance is sluggish and for example switching between gnome-terminal tabs takes few seconds and either firefox or google chrome are not very snappy. Performance is little better when subpixel smoothing of fonts is turned off. I'll be happy to give more details or try out some beta versions..

Can somebody from nvidia give some pointers on how to proceed?

Not a single reply for 1.5 months. Doesn't really convince me to choose my next card to be nvidia's..

Here's a picture of my settings. When enabling any of the 260.x series drivers I won't even see the login screen after restarting X.

can you try 270.18 ( does not need ignoreABI BTW ) but first read http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=46678 and generate a good report with the debug info as instructed after the issue appears ?

Thank you for your response! I tried with the 270.x driver and ran the nvidia-bug-report.sh script while X was still running (with the verbose log level as specified). The symptom is that screen of my laptop and the external monitor stays black. With the 256.x drivers external monitor works fine. Symptoms are identical to ones with 260.x.

It has been a month again without any responses. Was there something wrong with the bug report?

Still the same problem. I attached logs generated by nvidia-bug-report.sh. Last working version is 256.53.

Thanks for reporting this. It took me a while to track down one of these laptops (Lenovo W701), but now I have one, and we have confirmed the issue. I filed internal bug number 800950.

I updated to ubuntu 11.04 and now I can't get external display to work anymore even by using the old 256.x driver as it doesn't compile on 2.6.38.
