Re: Black stripe on my monitor
I had the same problem on a toshiba 5105. It seems that the monitor is not sending correct information to the driver or the driver is not interpreting it correctly.
The solution seems to be to extract the driver without running the installer. I think the option is "--extract-only".
Then go to "/NVIDIA../usr/src/nv".
Open "os-registry.c" in the folder with your favorite editor.
Change the follwing parameter to be (somewhere towards the end):
static int NVreg_SoftEDIDs = 0;
Also change (this might be different but this options works for me):
static int NVreg_Mobile = 2;
Save, and run the installer in the extracted folder. Its under /NVIDIA.. named nvidia_installer.
I hope this works for you.
