Default Re: Can't change resolution after NV driver 8762

I am having a similar problem.

I have two (almost identical) computers. Both are running SLED 10 (Suse Linux Enterprise Desktop) with the 8762 Nvidia drivers. Both have Nvidia Quadro 380 graphics cards. However, one has a Samsung 210T flat panel display, with a native resolution of 1600x1200, and the other has a Samsung 240T flat panel display, with a native resolution of 1920x1200. Both monitors are connected via the DVI interface.

The computer with the 210T monitor (1600x1200) works flawlessly. All I did was download/install the nvidia drivers via Novell's gui, enable 3D desktop effects via Novell's gui, and live happily ever after.

The computer with the 240T monitor refuses to go above a resolution of 1280x1024 when using the current nvidia (closed source) driver. However, it is able to display a resolution of 1920x1200 just fine using the nv (open source) driver.

It is illustrative to compare the output in Xorg.0.log depending on whether the nv or nvidia driver is being used. I've attached both log files as well as my xorg.conf files.

Any advice on getting the 240T working with the nvidia driver would be appreciated.
