Default Problems with 1.0-8756, geforce 420 goo on Toshiba 1410-801

I all,
i have a problem whith my old mobile pc, a Toshiba 1410-801 model. Whith my ubuntu breezy i had no problems. My system was:

1) xorg ver 6.8
2) nvidia driver versione 1.0-7667

and whith the toshiba options in /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia and xorg.conf whith the line

Code:
Option "IgnoreEDID" "true"
i had no problems. My problems start when i install ubuntu dapper. The problems are the nvidia drivers version 1.0-8756 because the "IgnoreEDID" option don't have effect. In the readme file, in the DPI section, i have read that the "IgnoreEDID" option became deprecated and that i must use "UseEDID". But that option have a strange effect: the screen is not central and cut. My question is: can i force the mode "1024x768"? There is an option to do that? Thx for risp.

Under mz xorg.con and others files.

Yes, I did it, if you searched this forum you should have found this:


/etc/modprobe.conf

"options nvidia NVreg_Mobile=x" where x is 1 3 or 5 (I chose 1)

xorg.conf :

Section "Screen"
Option "ExactModeTimingsDVI"
Option "UseEdidDpi" "FALSE"
Option "ModeValidation" "NoEdidDFPMaxSizeCheck, NoVesaModes"
