Default Re: black line on right side

Sorry i din't get back to you earlier. To extract the driver run:
./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6111-pkg1.run --extract-only
In the folder your driver is located. If you get an error saying you don't have permissions then:
chmod +777 NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6111-pkg1.run
and try again.
After you have extracted then go to /usr/src/nv in the NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-6111-pkg1 folder. The file os-registry.c is located here. Open it up in your favorite text editor scroll down untill you see this and change the values as I have them below:

/*
* Option: SoftEDIDs
*
* Description:
*
* The SoftEDIDs registry key enables dynamic generation of an appropriate
* EDID for mobile LCD displays from data stored in the video BIOS. If this
* is turned off, then on mobile systems, a hardcoded EDID will be chosen
* from a table, based on the value of the Mobile registry key.
*
* Possible Values:
*
* 0 = disable dynamic EDID generation
* 1 = enable dynamic EDID generation (default)
*/

static int NVreg_SoftEDIDs = 0;
NV_MODULE_PARAMETER(NVreg_SoftEDIDs);

/*
* Option: Mobile
*
* Description:
*
* The Mobile registry key should only be needed on mobile systems if
* SoftEDIDs is disabled (see above), in which case the mobile value
* will be used to lookup the correct EDID for the mobile LCD.
*
* Possible Values:
*
* ~0 = auto detect the correct value (default)
* 1 = Dell notebooks
* 2 = non-Compal Toshiba
* 3 = all other notebooks
* 4 = Compal/Toshiba
* 5 = Gateway
*
* Make sure to specify the correct value for your notebook.
*/

static int NVreg_Mobile = 2;
NV_MODULE_PARAMETER(NVreg_Mobile);

Save and exit your text editor. Run the installer from the extracted NVIDIA folder. You need to exit X and run it as root to make it work.
