Default Screen detection problem on Sony Vaio CW2S1E

Hi,

when I install the newest (or any other) nvidia-driver and restart my notebook, i get a very strange output (right and left part of of the desktop changed their positions). Then I have to reset xorg.conf (so no nvidia driver is in use anymore) and restart. I found many other users experiencing problems on sony-notebooks with nvidia-graphics but none of the workarounds I found solved the issue on my notebook. After my internet research I think it must be a screen detection problem. I would really like to know, if it is a driver-Problem and if it will be solved in one of the next driver-releases. And of cause if somebody can help me fixing the problem myself that would be great.
btw: Everything works well with nuveau-drivers (except resolution (displays native is not possible) and compiz) .The bug-report is attached.

CeTe

P.S. thanks nvidia for the great linux support and sorry for my bad english.

Have you tried the fix presented in this thread (post #18):

http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=140482

Works with my CW1S1E. There is also a more advanced solution using EDID from /proc/acpi/video/NGFX/.
