Default Re: No hdmi video on Asus AT3N7A-I with versions newer than 195.36.31

Hello Stephen,

Per your suggestions, here's what I did.

Connection via HDMI cable only running at the native 1920 resolution.

Working driver: 195.36.31
Non-working driver: 260.19.29

Ran 'X -logverbose 6' and captured the Xorg.0.log for each driver (see attached).

Since both logs contained timestamps which would cause major comparison issues, I ran them through a simple sed script to clean them up a bit.
Code:
mh9@m0:~
$ sed -e's/Jan 11 17.*NVIDIA/NVIDIA/' Xorg.0.log.195 > 195.txt 
mh9@m0:~
$ sed -e's/Jan 11 17.*NVIDIA/NVIDIA/' Xorg.0.log.260 > 260.txt
Then a diff.
Code:
mh9@m0:~
$ diff 195.txt 260.txt

Also, Immediatley after installing 260, I did a diff on the xorg.conf to be sure nothing had changed in there.
Code:
mh9@m0:/etc/X11
$ diff xorg.conf xorg.conf.backup 
2c2
< # nvidia-xconfig:  version 260.19.29  (buildmeister@swio-display-x86-rhel47-04.nvidia.com)  Wed Dec  8 12:27:39 PST 2010

> # nvidia-xconfig:  version 1.0  (buildmeister@builder62)  Thu Jun  3 09:41:37 PDT 2010
mh9@m0:/etc/X11
No matter what I did remotely via nvidia-settings with 260, I couldn't get anything to display on the screen. However, I could change everything interactively with 195.

Finally, reverted back to 195.36.31 but had to reboot in order to get gdm to start again. I couldn't simply do a 'sudo service gdm restart'.

Hmm...?

Thanks,
mh9 (michael)
