Default Re: G210m Blank Laptop Display

Hey tgui or someone...any chance you could make an edid file for my Sony VAIO PCG-81114L? It's got a 1920X1080 display using an NVIDIA Geforce GT 320m, (hardware-wise, appears to be almost identical to the 210M) and the edid files on this thread haven't worked, and I can't run the SoftMCCS program on Windows 7 on it; it crashes. I tried running that read-edid program under Ubuntu that you recommended, but it gave an error and the recommended workaround to use was a DOS version of it, but the compiler it needs doesn't work under x64 Windows, so I'm in a tough spot as far as trying to make my own edid file

The edid files I've tried give a display in X, but it's all big gray bars just like someone else in this thread reported, I think the guy you made the 1600X900 edid file for. Any chance I'm in luck?

Sorry, I'd need your laptop in person to make the edid. But, you can do it. Use phoenix edid puller as it works in win 7 (what I used).

So I can just pull the EDID info from the registry with that and save the file and use that? I notice it's saving as .dat, not .bin, will that still work; or was the point of this app to view info I have to manually put in the xorg.conf file? Sorry, I'm pretty new to linux.

Using the read-edid (get-edid and parse-edid) tools in ubuntu I get the following for an ul30vt:

There is a menu option to save it as raw data.

Default Re: G210m Blank Laptop Display

I am having a similar problem with my Sony Vaio CW VPCCW19FX , but with a little different twist.

I first installed Ubuntu 9.10, along with the fix of an EDID entry in xorg.conf, and it worked okay. But then I decided to re-install a Gentoo system.
To my surprise, this time EDID file doesn't work for me : When I tried to start X, after Nvidia logo was shown for an instant, the screen turned into blank forever.

Here is my configuration:

Sony Vaio CW VPCCW19FX with Nvidia G210M
Gentoo 10.1 (Kernel 2.6.31-gentoo-r6)
Nvidia driver : 190.53
EDID from Win7

xorg.conf
Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier     "Default Layout"
    Screen         "Default Screen" 0 0
    InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
    InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
EndSection

Section "Module"
    Load           "glx"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
    # generated from default
    Identifier     "Keyboard0"
    Driver         "keyboard"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"
    # generated from default
    Identifier     "Mouse0"
    Driver         "mouse"
    Option         "Protocol" "auto"
    Option         "Device" "/dev/psaux"
    Option         "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
    Option         "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
    Identifier     "Configured Monitor"
EndSection

Section "Device"  
  Identifier          "Device0"
   Driver             "Nvidia"
   VendorName         "NVIDIA Corporation"
   # Option             "ConnectedMonitor"   "DFP-0,DFP-1,CRT"
   Option             "ConnectedMonitor"   "DFP-0"
   Option             "CustomEDID"          "DFP-0:/etc/X11/edid_v140.bin"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
    Identifier     "Default Screen"
    Device         "Configured Video Device"
    Monitor        "Configured Monitor"
    DefaultDepth   24
    SubSection     "Display"
        Depth      24
        Modes      "nvidia-auto-select"
    EndSubSection
EndSection
If anyone has some idea about what the problem might be, please let me know.
Thanks,

Chinyet

My bad : X window managers inside the default xinitrc hasn't been installed yet.
With a viable window manager, everything is fine with those configuration files.
However, I still got the problem that I am not able to switch VT with CTRL+ALT+[F#], or shut down X server with CTRL+ALT+BS...

date 7th Jan 2010:
Nvidia G210M
Kubuntu / Ubuntu Karmic 9.10
Nvidia drivers from ppa: 190.53
EDID taken from Win7

I have also tried the different setups mentioned in this topic.
I have the same laptop with Ubuntu 9.10. I don't need to use HDMI just need to get the G210M driver to work with out screen going blank.

Not sure if you read this post anymore but just incase if you find the fix please let me know.

Thanks,
Kit

I'm noticing that a lot of the laptops mentioned in this thread have multiple GPUs (integrated GPU + discrete). I'm not sure to what level these sorts of things are supported... Try going into your BIOS to disable any "Hybrid GPU" features, and the integrated GPU, if possible, and see if that helps at all.

There is no option in the BIOS at least not my brand and model

The user manual that came with laptop indicates that there is an actual switch to allow me to select between integrated and discrete card. But there is also a keyword "on selected models". Unfortunately it wasn't my model

Under Windows 7 Device Manager both Mobile Intel 4 series Express chipset and Nvidia G210M are using Nvidia driver dated 8/28/2009 version 8.15.11.8688. If that's mean anything.
