Default Re: display corruption on GeForce 440 Go

Hi kelvin,

Tried your customized nvnew.raw binary, indeed it FIXED the long time outstanding resolution on Dell Inspiron 8200 15" Enhanced UXGA with GeForce4 440 Go. As you suggested, just needed 2 additional option for 9629 to work, there're; "UseDisplayDevice" "DFP-0" & "CustomEDID" "path_to_edid.bin"

Without "UseDisplayDevice" "DFP-0" on 8776 work, just wondering what's changed in 9629 caused the driver detected only CRT is present. Nevertheless, this edid.bin also solved the screen corruption while switching resolution in X.

BTW, kelvin, do you think possible to create 2 more valid resolution into edid.bin since the one you posted contained only 1600x1200@60Hz. Because when switched to 1400x1050 or 1280x1024 @60Hz the VertRefresh kind of too low & difficulty to read. This is the output from edid-read;

Section "Monitor"

Anyway, kelvin, Big Thanks to you
