Re: QuadroFX 1500 (Compaq nw9440) Can't change resolution
For further information, this is what I have in my 'nv' driver xorg.conf for mode-related information:
Identifier "nVidia Corporation G71 [Quadro FX 1500M]"
Option "UseEDID" "false"
Identifier "Generic Monitor"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Device "nVidia Corporation G71 [Quadro FX 1500M]"
Monitor "Generic Monitor"
Modes "1680x1050" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
(just an example, all bit depths are like that)
Options in this file may or may not make sense, I did a lot of troubleshooting by flipping back and forth between nv and nvidia drivers with an otherwise identical xorg.conf. This file was originally created by dexconf although I find that I can flip back and forth with a file from there or from nvidia-settings (tweaked more than changing the driver, or not.)
I'm just trying to figure out why 'nv' can find valid modes and use them, but 'nvidia' can't, and further why I can't use the modes nv validates with nvidia...
Attached is the full 'nv' driver xorg.conf.
