Exclamation Screen shaking

Hi all!!

I have a nVidia GeForce FX5900 with XFree 4.3.0 with latest drivers, and whenever i do a glxgears, or play a 3D game, my screen shakes horizontali, not very hard, but noticeable, specially on the edges of the screen. I tryed to change refreshing rate of the monitor and lower the resolution (current i'm on 1280x1024).

I also tryed to install previous drivers (53.28) with the same result.

I checked XFree log with that results:

(WW) NVIDIA(0): The user specified HorizSync "30.000-95.000" has been adjusted
(WW) NVIDIA(0): to "30.000-69.000" (the intersection with EDID-specified
(WW) NVIDIA(0): HorizSync "30.000-69.000")
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Not using mode "1400x1050" (width 1400 is larger than
(WW) NVIDIA(0): EDID-specified maximum 1280)
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Not using mode "700x525" (height 1050 is larger than
(WW) NVIDIA(0): EDID-specified maximum 1024)
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Not using mode "1152x768":
(WW) NVIDIA(0): horizontal sync start (1178) not a multiple of 8
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Not using mode "576x384":
(WW) NVIDIA(0): horizontal sync start (589) not a multiple of 8
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Not using mode "360x200":
(WW) NVIDIA(0): horizontal sync start (378) not a multiple of 8

I tryed to use Option "IgnoreEDID" "1" and Option "UseEdidFreqs" "1", and neither of both helped.
My screen is an ADI Microscan 17"

Please, i need some help. as this is driving me crazy, this is my first nvidia card after a whole life of ATi (yes, yes, i've seen the light!)

Thanks in advance

Don't think you should use the option UseEdidFreqs as it makes you accept the frequencies the driver wants to use. The option IgnoreEdid should really fix the problems, are you sure you added it to the right section and typed it correctly?

I think so, but i will do it again, just in case...

I also noticed that happens the same when using WinXP, so, is there the possibility that its vid card fault?? And also i'm not getting the shaking all the time, just when i run a game.

Thunderbird,

You were absolutely right!! Now it works perfectly. The problem was that i read somewhere in this forum that I should put "Option IgnoreEDID", and actually it is "Option IgnoreEdid", so the option is case sensitive.
Now i did a glxgears without any shakings.

Many many thanks Thunderbird, you rule!!!!

Mmmmmmmm, just ignore my last post (LOL)

Even though glxgears show no shaking, playing Neverwinter Nights, UT2003 or ET show (still) a nasty shaking. I think i'm gonna return the video card an grab a new one, maybe is its fault....
