Default Issues with Toshiba 5200-00E / GeforceGo FX5600

According to the logs its unable to find a proper horizontal/verticle refresh for resolutions above 1024x768

When using 1024x768 I get an interesting grey "matt" that slowly gets brighter with time

Using the nv driver x loads but displays only black

Hello!

I have the same problem with my Satellite 5200-902.

have you been successful so far solving that problem and get X running on your system?

Default supported cards

looking at the list of cards supported by this driver I don't see the Go FX5600, just the FX5600

is this card going to be supported in the next driver release? If so, would you be able to give an estimation on when the next driver release is going to happen?

Default UPDATE

i've tried using driver versions: 4349, 4191 and 3123 with the following results


4349: exactly the same results as 4363, x loads fine but all I get on my screen is a gray matt that slowly gets brighter then dimmer again..

4191: exactly the same results as 4363, x loads fine but all I get on my screen is a gray matt that slowly gets brighter then dimmer again..

3123: NVdriver kernel driver fails to load, citing lack of being able to find device

*is really hoping that there will be a driver out soon n that supports the fxgo 5600 series*
