Default Re: Unable to set correct resolution for GEFORCE 9400GT in Ubuntu 9.04

Not sure I understand that last comment.

The problem (as detailed in earlier posts below) is that Nvidia cannot detect the EDID information coming from my monitor. Therefore, I need to force the use of an EDID file supplied by the monitor manufacturer by including the 'Option' line in the Devices section of xorg.conf.

What I am not clear about is whether the file supplied, which has a .dat extension, will be recognised by Nvidia, which I am told expects a .bin file. With the xorg.conf file shown in my earlier post, the .dat file is not having any effect at all. This may be because Nvidia does not recognise this type of file, or it may be that I have not amended xorg.conf correctly.
