Dell 8200 at 1600x1200?
I recently purchased a Dell 8200 and put Linux (RedHat 7.2) on it. (specifically 7.2 for development reasons).

I have gotten the NVidia driver up and running just beautifully and I couldn't be happier except for one small thing:

When I run it at 1600x1200, the X display doesn't fit on the entire screen. It's not "virtual," either. That is -- if you move the cursor off screen, the display does not scroll over to follow it.

Works fine at 1400x1050.

I'll leave it at 1400x1050 if I have to, but my reading of postings in here suggests to me I should be able to run at full resolution.

Thoughts? :c)

actually i'm experiencing that very same problem... i don't have the 1450 in my xf86config so it just defaults down to 1024. hopefully someone who has resolved this issue will reply, i'm gonna keep searching and i'll post if i figure it out :(

Might actually be the amount of RAM in my video card. I thought it was 64. It's actually 32.

In Winblowz, it also does not come up (or allow) 1600x1200.

actually i've got 64mb in my video card... and in windows it does allow 1600x1200 (1900x1400 when i have a monitor plugged in). i can do 1600x1200 when the machine is docked (in linux) as well though... hrm...

can you post a copy of your XF86Config file?

I also can't get my 8200 into the higher rez's.....If there is anyone out there that is able to post their XF86Config file that would be very helpful.........

option in cfg to disable bandwith check
I had similar problem on Dell Latitude C840. New nvidia driver 4191 logged message that bandwith is too small fo r16x12 . It worked on GF2MX ok though. So I had to put following in the XF86Config:

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "NVIDIA GeForce 4 Go 440"
Monitor "Monitor0"
DefaultDepth 24
Option "NvAgp" "1"
Option "DigitalVibrance" "1"
Option "NoBandWidthTest" "1"
Option "renderAccel" "1"
# Option "IgnoreEDID" "1"
Subsection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1600x1200" "1400x1050" "1280x960" "800x600" "640x480"

Hope it helps!

Thanks a bunch for the info, most of the lines you had, I had, but there were a few I didn't have.......Not sure though, but do I still need the section for the display???? If so, would you know the values I need to put in for those lines???? ie rez of the LCD....

Thanks again,
