Default 16:10 aspect ratio

I purchased a new monitor Samsung P2270 - it tells me on screen, it works best at 1600x900.
This is hooked to a GeForce 7000 series adapter. I'm running Solaris 10u7, nvidia driver:

Default Re: 16:10 aspect ratio

Have you tries Nvidia configuration utility?


It has a section for configuring the color depth.

Click on "X Server Display Configuration"
Click on "X Screen" tab

Be sure to "Save to X Configuration File"
