Arrow Re: black line on right side

I appear to have fixed the black line on right side problem on my SP6100.

Following every posting here and everywhere else, I had originally tried putting various options under "Device" in xorg.conf which didn't work After messing about with various other options I somehow managed (random accident, late at night, etc) to put this line under Section "Monitor" in xorg.conf

Option "IgnoreEDID" "true"

my section "Monitor" reads as follows:

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Monitor0"
HorizSync 30-90
VertRefresh 60
Option "IgnoreEDID" "true"
VendorName "Monitor Vendor"
ModelName "Monitor Model"

To double check I commented out that line and the black reappeared. Uncommented and it disappeared.
Also, the HorizSync and VertRefresh are required - I commented them out and the black strip reappeared.

Try it. Good luck

Note: system config
Toshiba Sat Pro 6100, Gentoo, 2.6.10 kernel, xorg-x11 6.8.0-r4
gentoo packaged nvidia driver 1.0-6629
