Angry GeForce4 ti4200, LCD monitor, and Xwindows??

I have a Viewsonic VA720 that works great with X on other cards, but for some reason when I'm using a ti4200 it cannot detect the frequencies of the monitor and therefore will only allow me barebones SVGA (800x600) resolution.

I was reading some old postings from over a year ago and this was a standard problem but labeled as fixed in May 2002, but it doesn't look fixed to me. I'm using the most current (downloaded today) drivers and they install and run smoothly.

XFree86.0.log shows every posible mode as "hsync out of range", "vrefresh out of range", or "bad mode clock/interlace/doublescan" -- even the lowly 320x200x16 mode has this. So I think its something wrong with how the nvidia driver is probing the monitor.

Even more bizzare is that the exact same hardware (dualboot) running WinXP has no problems. So I'm convinced its a problem with the drivers or a problem in the hardware that can be accounted for in the driver.

Anyone have any good advice or suggestions on how to make this work?
