Default GeForce4 440 Go 64M

Hi,
I have got a HP laptop pavilion zv5200 with AMD64 athlon, 15,4" and NVIDIA GeForce4 440 GO 64M and I am trying to setup the resolution to 1280x800 without any success. I have tried Gentoo, Mandrake10, Fedora2 but I get only 800x600!
All helps are appreciated.

Look in /var/log/ for the X log when you try 1280x800 (shouldn't that be 1280x960?) - it probably gives the reason. If you are still stuck post the log and your X config here.

I bought a zv5000 which also have a widescreen.

First problem: windows works perfect in 1280x800 mode,
but Fedora2 goes automatically to 1024x768 (or 800x600,
or 640x480)... and the text mode doesn't work !!!
I mean, if I hit crtl+alt+F... the refresh rate
goes crazy.

I just downloaded the nvidea driver and I will try
it as soon as I get home. Tomorrow I post what's happend.

By the way, which LCD monitor should I choose?? I
had to keep with a generic 1024x768 because no hp-like
monitors seemed to be right... And I couldn't find
any technical information about it in the HP website.

You need to make the following modifcations to your xorg.conf or xf86.conf mattering on which version of X you are using.

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "WXGA LCD"
VendorName "HP"
ModelName "0"
HorizSync 30 - 90
VertRefresh 50 - 75
Option "dpms"
Option "UseEdidFreqs"
UseModes "16:10"
Option "FlatPanelProperties" "Scaling = aspect-scaled"
EndSection

Section "Device"
Identifier "NVIDIA GeForce 440 Go"
#Driver "nv"
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "NVIDIA"
BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce 4 (generic)"
Option "UseEdidFreqs" "1"
Option "FlatPanelProperties" "Scaling = aspect-scaled"
Option "RenderAccel" "true"
Option "XaaNoOffscreenPixmaps"
EndSection

Section "Modes"
Identifier "16:10"
ModeLine "1280x800" 83.5 1280 1344 1480 1680 800 801 804 828
EndSection

Section "Screen"
Identifier "screen 1"
Device "NVIDIA GeForce 440 Go"
Monitor "WXGA LCD"
DefaultDepth 24
SubSection "Display"
Viewport 0 0
Depth 24
Modes "1280x800" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
Virtual 1280 800
EndSubSection
EndSection

Once done restart into X and it should be up and running at 1280x800 <works on my zv5370> Good luck!

Option "RenderAccel" "true"
Option "XaaNoOffscreenPixmaps" <--these two lines are not required but generally make desktop use feel faster the 2nd option just fixes a bug while running video's in some apps!
