Default Re: Ubuntu 7.10, NVidia GeForce4 440Go, Screen Problems

For some reason the latest nvidia drivers cause the 440Go cards to output only to the external VGA port by default. The solution is to tell it to explicitly use the built in flat panel. Add the following line in the 'Section "Device"' section in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file:

Option "UseDisplayDevice" "DFP"

Note that if you ever do want to output to the VGA port you need to comment this line out. Good luck.
