I recently installed the Nvidia Legacy Driver 1.0-9631 for Linux x86 on my Notebook (Toshiba Satellite 2410-404, running Ubuntu 6.10 Edgy Eft. The graphics card is a Geforce4 420 Go 32MB, and I am using no external monitor.
After adding Option "ConnectedMonitor" "DFP"
to my xorg.conf I had no more black screen, and with Option "ModeValidation" "DFP-0: NoDFPNativeResolutionCheck"
I got rid of the surrounding black areas (it's nearly fullscreen now).
Still I've got some problems I couldn't solve on my own:
Option "ExactModeTimingsDVI" "TRUE"
- The black bar on the right won't go away
- I can't get a resolution higher than 800x600
and Option "UseEDID" "FALSE"
which I found as a solution in resembling threads are producing a black screen (sometimes with backlight on).
Also I couldn't find/produce any modelines which would allow me to use this options or increase the resolution.
I hope someone can help me with this problem(s).
Thanks in advance.
