Default Re: Problems with 1.0-9631 on Geforce4 420 Go

After hours spent screwing around with every setting I could in xorg.conf, the custom EDID did the trick: 1400x1050 on a Toshiba Satellite 5105 with the nvidia binary driver (1.0-9631). Phew! Many thanks to the posts above. I used khexedit and it was a breeze. For those who'd just like the binary, I've attached it below. Just save and gunzip the file (I put it in /etc/X11/), then add this line to your Screen section in xorg.conf:
Option "CustomEDID" "DFP-0:/etc/X11/ToshibaSatellite5105EDID.bin"
I removed most of the other Option settings I had in xorg.conf, except the following, in the Device section:
Option "ExactModeTimingsDVI" "1"
Option "IgnoreDisplayDevices" "TV"
Option "DPMS"
Option "BackingStore" "1"
Option "nvAGP" "2"
Option "MultisampleCompatibility" "1"
Option "DPI" "116 x 116"
Option "RenderAccel" "1"
Option "AllowDDCCI" "True"
Option "UseDisplayDevice" "DFP"
I also decided not to use any modelines, but you probably could.
