Lightbulb Re: HP pavilion zv5000 + GeForce4 440 = no 1920x1200 !

I reply for myself as nobody seems to be interested in problem.

The solution is :

Section "Modes"
Identifier "16:10"
Modeline "1920x1200" 197.27 1920 2064 2272 2624 1200 1201 1204 1253
Endsection

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Monitor0"
VendorName "Monitor Vendor"
ModelName "LCD Panel 1920x1200"
UseModes "16:10"
Option "dpms"
EndSection

That's all folks !

Some remarks : this modeline is able to refresh at 60Hz. The modeline given by the xserver refreshes at 56Hz and the picture is really crappy.

If you're brave you can even try that modeline :
210.68 1920 1952 2752 2784 1200 1224 1236 1261

I didn't cat tested it and be warned that you can burn your flat panel with that.

Some keywords for google :

x-window modeline hp pavilion zv5000 fedora core 3 test 3 nvidia geforce go 440 amd64

And don't forget to use the nvidia driver and not the nv driver. I know it's not open source but it just works. Remove dri from your xorg.conf file but keep glx
