Default Mandrake 9.1 display issues

My main problem is with my LCD screen. I have tried the KT400 workaround as well as updating to the 4363 drivers, still can't get X to work. Screen goes black, system hangs. If I switch back to the "nv" driver, it works fine.
This is what works for the "nv" driver in my config:

Section "Device"
Identifier "device1"
VendorName "NVidia"
BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce4 (generic)"
Driver "nv"
Option "DPMS"
Option "FlatPanel" "true"
Option "FPDither" "true"
EndSection

This is what I am currently trying with the "nvidia" driver:

Section "Device"
Identifier "device1"
VendorName "NVidia"
BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce4 (generic)"
Driver "nvidia"
Option "NvAGP" "0"
Option "DPMS"
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "DFP"
Option "FlatPanelProperties" "Dithering = enabled"
EndSection

System specs include: Gainward GeForce 4 Ti 4600, GA-7VAXP motherboard.

Suggestions?

Why are you using the connectedmonitor option?

An X log would be most useful.

Default LCD works

Thanks for questioning the ConnectedMonitor Option, I took that out and it displays now. Sometime during the troubleshooting process I was told I needed that for things to work. Seems whoever said that was wrong, at least for me.

Now off to try and get TwinView working.
