Default 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:

Section "Device"
Identifier "nVidia Corporation G71 [Quadro FX 1500M]"
Driver "nv"
BusID "PCI:1:0:0"
Option "UseEDID" "false"

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Generic Monitor"
Option "DPMS"
HorizSync 28-84
VertRefresh 43-60

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Default Screen"
Device "nVidia Corporation G71 [Quadro FX 1500M]"
Monitor "Generic Monitor"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Depth 24
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.
