Default wrong rez on Acer AL1916W


I am getting the wrong resolution on an Acer AL1916W LCD - I am getting 1400x1050

the max rez of this monitor is 1440x900 - which is also a different ratio so everything looks d-i-s-t-o-r-t-e-d

under nvidia-settings there is no option for 1440x900 at all.

works fine with the nv driver with the normal Display settings in xorg.conf

I tried all the following options as well pulled from other threads:
#Option "Metamodes" "1440x900_60"
#Option "ExactModeTimingsDVI" "true"
#Option "UseEDIDFreqs" "false"
#Option "UseEDID" "false"

but nothing had any positive effect. Seems like EDID overrides it no matter what, and if the driver can't use it I get 600x400

Please let me know how to fix. Thanks!
