Question ugly screen with black border at right hand of screen

I'm crazy for this problem , when i update the drivers for my laptop , Toshiba 2410, which has "Nvidia Geforce4 420Go 32M", there are problem in my resolution setup interface , the largest resolution is "969X768", but not "1024x768"


and there are a black border at the right of screen


Sometimes I use Redhat9 or higer, when i update the driver from official site,i got the same problem, there are a same black border, and at the same postion, I can fix it by modify the configure files by add this:
Option "FlatPanelProperties" "Scaling = native"

but how should I do in Windows?

Motherboard: Toshiba 2410 , Intel Chipest
Processor: Intel Pentium 4, 1.8G
Graphics Card: Nvidia,
model: Geforce4 420 go 32M
OS: Windows XP

when i use the display driver come from the Toshiba's cdrom ,the version is :28.xx , it's working well.

Any idea is welcome, Thanks!

I've had this problem too, you need to edit your XFree86Config or xorg.conf file, and in section Device you need to add this line:

Code:
Option "IgnoreEDID" "1"
it works for me

yeah, sorry
but, in windows driver should be option to enter non-standard options - maybe just enter there "IgnoreEDID" and value "1" ? I don't have windows on my toshiba's laptop - I cannot check this.
