Default Re: Geforece 5700go/zd7000 flicker problem

I have the problem on my zd7000 also. I tried all the ideas found here and elsewhere, none worked. Finally I saw a suggestion to enter a screen geometry that was less that 1024x768,
then return to 1440x900 (ie, CNTL-ALT-KP_Subtract, CNTL-ALT-KP_Add). Added
a 800x600 modeline, the tried the size flip-flop, and it WORKED!

So now I automate it with .xinitrc:

# go lores then back for flicker-free display:
xvkbd -text "\C\A\[KP_Subtract]\C\A\[KP_Add]"

I also am running @ 1680x1050 with this XF86Config:

HorizSync 30-90
VertRefresh 50-100
ModeLine "1440x900" 97.54 1440 1472 1840 1872 900 919 927 946
Modeline "1680x1050" 147.14 1680 1784 1968 2256 1050 1051 1054 1087

SubSection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1680x1050" "1440x900" "800x600"
