Default Re: Compile Error - Nvidia driver installation

I was also told the same thing. Full details on my problem which led me to install driver by re-compiling are available at:
Hm ... I'd agree that the openSUSE X11 configuration utility "sax2" really sucks *ahem
And I have some complaints about the precompiled drivers in the nVIDIA repo.

But as said before, you should look in /var/log/Xorg.0.log
The driver will log why it's choosing a resolution and why other resolutions weren't chosen. From the /etc/X11/xorg.conf you posted, I'd say it's either the IMHO silly UseModes entry in the Monitor section or the unnecessary long list of unavailable resolutions in the Screen section (it's a Laptop with 1280x800, right?).
