Default Re: GeForce 420 Go on Kubuntu6.10:Desktop fixed on 800*600 rectangle area,not full screen

I am having some issues as well, although a bit different. My screen will boot similarly but into 1280 x 1024 surrounded by black, and I can change the resolution to 1920 x 1200 and it applies, but I can't save the xorg.conf out, getting the following error:

ERROR: Unable to determine valid vertical refresh ranges for display device
'Sharp' (GPU: GeForce4 4200 Go)!
ERROR: Failed to add display device 'Sharp' to screen 0!
ERROR: Failed to add X screen 0 to X config.
ERROR: Failed to add X screens to X config.
ERROR: Failed to generate an X config file!


I have the /etc/modprobe.d/options entry-

options nvidia NVreg_SoftEDIDs=0 NVreg_Mobile=1

and /etc/X11/xorg.conf incudes-

using the dell monitor settings generated by kubuntu's control manager has been the only way thus far to get up to true 1920 x 1200 at true color. The control center, however, still reports a generic 4 series being driven by nv

I'm using driver 9631.

Thanks in advance!




Thanks in advance, bug reports have been sent.
