Default Re: Display Port on Quadro FX 3700M (Linux)


Similar to the above post...
I have a Dell Precision M6400 laptop running Ubuntu 8.10 (intrepid).
The graphics card is an NVidia Quadro FX 3700M with 1 GB RAM.
According to nvidia-settings, the NVidia driver version is 177.82.
The laptop screen looks good at resolution 1920x1200.

The laptop has one VGA and one dual-mode DisplayPort (DP) output.
I connected an external monitor, a Dell 24" UltraSharp 2408FPW,
to both the VGA and the DP outputs from the laptop.
The external monitor does not recognize the DP input, though it
does the VGA input (which has limited resolution to 1152x864).

How do I get X windows/the monitor to recognize the DP input?
I know this is a Linux issue, not hardware, because the same
system dual-boots Windows Vista where the DP connection works fine.
