Resolution issue with 96**
 
1 Attachment(s)
Hello,

I've been using the 87** branch successfully for some time with my Geforce 6200, and decided lately to switch to the 96***.

Problem is, no mode is recognized, and I'm left out with a 800*600@50 Hz, which I find to be curious, as I had no problem using a 1280*1024@85 Hz before.

The nvidia-bug-report is attached, I hope someone could point me in the right direction, I'm a bit lost there.

Thanks

It looks like the EDID for your CRT isn't getting detected properly. Could you post a bug report against 1.0-8776 where this problem isn't present?

Are you using a KVM, or any other intermediary devices between the graphics card & CRT?
Also, what kind of CRT are you using?

Thanks,
Lonni

The driver cannot find any EDID info for your monitor;

Quote:

(--) NVIDIA(0): Connected display device(s) on GeForce 6200 at PCI:1:0:0:
(--) NVIDIA(0): @@@ (CRT-0)
(--) NVIDIA(0): @@@ (CRT-0): 400.0 MHz maximum pixel clock
You could try using;

Quote:

Option "UseEDID" "FALSE"
Check out http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree8...ppendix-d.html for other options that may help.

I don't really know what you're talking about, so I guess the answer would be no.

My monitor is an old one (2001), I'm not even sure I know it's specs. It's not a flat screen, if that's what you wanted to know

The EDID trick worked well, at least I can use my computer now, thanks.

I'll install the 8778 drivers and post a new report in a moment.
Thanks for your answers.

I'm curious about the specific brand & model of the CRT to see if I had the same here to reproduce this problem.

Thanks,

It's a Jean JD199L3, Type No. J91B.

Thanks a lot.

So I just reinstalled the 1.0-8776 drivers, here is the nvidia-bug-report.log you asked for.

Hope this helps.

According to this 1.0-8776 bug report, the EDID isn't getting detected either:
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Unable to read EDID for display device CRT-0

So either your CRT has no EDID, or its mangled. I'm afraid that setting UseEDID to false is the only solution.

Thanks,
Lonni

I'll do just that, then.

Thank you for your time.
