Post Specify native resolution in xorg.conf

Hello all,
I'm wondering if it is possible to manually specify/force the use of the monitor's native resolution via xorg.conf?

Using the nvidia driver for nVidia Corporation C61 [GeForce 6150SE nForce 430] rev 162,
it gets picked up as 1368x768. From X.org Log
NVIDIA(0): "nvidia-auto-select"
NVIDIA(0): Virtual screen size determined to be 1368 x 768

However the native resolution, according to the manual for the 931Swl, is 1366x768. the desktop therefore projects off to each side. Is there any non-destructive way to force the use of 1366x768? Thank you,

Ooops, seems there are some limitations in the nvidia driver wrt 1366x768.

Hi grey_ash,
GPUs prior to the GeForce 8 series can only display resolutions with widths that are multiples of 8. It's a hardware limitation, not a driver limitation. I apologize for the inconvenience.
