Default Re: Nvidia Beta driver 1.0-9625

/var/log/Xorg.0.log says:
(WW) NVIDIA(0): No valid modes for "1440x900"; removing.

I didn't need to specify a modeline using 8774, and it doesn't help if I add one now, tried both
Modeline "1440x900" 97.54 1440 1472 1840 1872 900 919 927 946
Modeline "1440x900" 100.000 1440 1456 1464 1480 900 916 924 940 -hsync -vsync
Are you using DVI? I also have a TFT with a native resolution of 1440x900 and it works fine, but I'm using a vga connector. It's running on this modeline:

"1440x900" 136.75 1440 1536 1688 1936 900 903 909 942 -hsync +vsync
