Default Low resolution on 180.51 update, GeForce 7025/NVIDIA nForce 630a

Hi I have just updated my driver to 180.51 for my GeForce 7025/NVIDIA nForce 630a on amd64, and I cannot get any resolution higher than 640x 480, I have searched the forums for help on this but cannot seem to find anything, has anyone got any ideas?

Hi Thanks for your reply, I understand people get annoyed with newbies not doing this, but I have read them and I cant find anything about my problem? Perhaps I am not using the correct search terms, maybe you could point me towards the right answer?
Thanks in advance.

Did you read the sticky on how to report a problem/bug report?

Read yes, understood no...
I think have managed to meet the requirements of point 3b (attach the nvidia install log), and 3d ( good title) but I cant for the life of me understand 3a...

Also during install I got this warning at the end:

WARNING: unable to perform configuration check for library ' libGL.so.1' ('/usr/lib/libGL.so.180.51'); assuming succesful installation.

In fact what you did was a manual driver installation under a distribution with packaged drivers (fedora is my guess from the log).

First of all, this is not at all recommended. Read the sticky on how to install drivers on recent distributions.

Then: please generate a nvidia bug report. In order to do so, run as root / or with sudo on a terminal: nvidia-bug-report.sh

This will create a file you can upload here, which contains information about what went wrong. Probably either the driver was not loaded due to version / library mismatch as a result of the manual installation.

Please upload this file, then we'll look for further steps.

Thanks for the instruction, report attached, easy when you get pointed in the right direction, I appreciate your help.

I downloaded NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-180.51-pkg2.run, opened a terminal, typed init 3, logged in as root and typed sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-180.51-pkg2.run. And just kept pressing accept and ok to all the things it wanted. Then I rebooted (back to init 5) where the resolution was limited to 640x480. Under system>Preferences there is the icon NVIDIA x Server Settings, when I open that and look at all the settings it wont let me increase the resolution.

I'm using FC 10 I was previously running NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-180.22-pkg2-run whyich I installed the same way and didnt have any problems.. Thanks for your help.

Sorry I forgot to mention, I followed the instruction under zanders post no1 in the isntallation sticky -
# yum install kernel-devel xorg-x11-server-sdk pkgconfig
# yum update
# reboot

But didnt do any of the selinux stuff mentioned after as I figured it wasnt needed as I have selinux disabled due to lack of ability to understand how to set it up and it continually screwed with anythign else installed ....

Okay,

(WW) NVIDIA(GPU-0): The EDID read for display device CRT-0 is invalid: the
(WW) NVIDIA(GPU-0): checksum for EDID version 1 is invalid.


There is your problem. It seems that the new driver fails to read the EDID information of your display. Strange that it worked with the old driver, but this gives us an easy solution:

Re-install the old driver, extract it ("Aquire EDID" button in nvidia setting, in the monitor configuration (not screen/display configuration)) and then feed it manually to the driver.

The Option for doing so is Option "CustomEDID" "string" found here:
http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree8...ppendix-b.html

This should solve your problem.

Else: Please submit the extracted EDID along the bug report to nvidia, then it's probably a bug in the driver.

Kind regards,

Christian

Thumbs up Re: Low resolution on 180.51 update, GeForce 7025/NVIDIA nForce 630a

I couldnt find the aquire edid button, so I just plugged in a different monitor (samsung syncmaster), reinstalled 180.22, and it worked fine, so then I reinstaled 180.51, also fine. Swapped for the original monitor (acer) and it seems to have detected it now, I have choices for resolution..

All working well now, thanks for your help I really appreciate it.
