Question REDHAT 9.0 Locked in 640x480 Mode

I have installed RH 9.0 on a Dell C840 Laptop. It is running a GeForce 440 Go video card. I have sucessfully installed the NVidia drivers. The problem is now it will only run X in 640x480 mode. I have added the Option "NoBandWidhTest" to the XF86Config files with no luck. Any Ideas would be great!

The error I get when I run X is:
(EE) NVIDIA(0)L no HorizSync values remaining

Device and Monitor Section of my XF86Config File:

Section "Device"

# no known options
Identifier "NVIDIA GeForce 4 (Generic)
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "NVIDIA GeForce 4 (Generic)
BoardName "NVIDIA GeForce 4 (Generic)
Option "NoBandWidthTest"

Section "Monitor"

Identifier "Monitor0"
VendorName "Monitor Vendor"
ModelName "Generic Laptop Display Panel 1600x1200"
HorizSync 31.5-48.5
VertRefresh 40-75
Option "dpms"

Default Fixed it

I added the line: Option "IgnoreEDID" "1" to the device section of my XF86Config file. Problem solved!!
