Default Re: 1920x1080 mode not available?

Asus M2NPV-VM motherboard - GeForce 6150 GPU/nForce 430 MCP. Max res 1280x1024

I installed NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-195.36.15-pkg2.run which went very smoothly with the usual "init 3 ; ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-195.36.15-pkg2.run ; init 5" sequence under OpenSUSE 10.3-64 as root.

Monitor is a Samsung SyncMaster P2370HD with native resolution of 1920x1080. I installed the "Monitor Setup" from the provided product CD. I tried driving both the DVI and VGA-PC connectors with the same result of max 1280x1024 resolution.

Is there a way to convince the GeForce 6150 GPU/nForce 430 MCP chipset/X to use the 1920x1080 mode of the monitor?

My primary use of the display is engineering/CAD/Programming and the extra resolution will really help.

Thanks,
Craig
