Default problem with 7667, MX4000, Dell 2001FP, DVI at 1600x1200

I "upgraded" from a GeForce2 Ultra AGP 4x to a GeForce4 MX 4000 AGP 8x on my AMD64 machine. Now my monitor says "Can not display this mode." This is using the 'nvidia' X driver. I've tried 7667, 7174, and 6629.

I also tried the 'nv' X driver, but that detects the flat panel as 1280x1024, and thus won't even try 1600x1200.

I've tried the various mode lines listed throughout this forum, and they still don't work. Currently I have it set to 130.2 MHz, 74 kHz, 59.9 Hz, since 7667 thinks my pixel clock is 135MHz.

All I want is DVI at 1600x1200... any idea why it isn't working? X thinks everything is working fine.

Logfile? Config file? What display exactly?

The display is the Dell 2001fp. Log file and conf file attached for one of the configs.

I've tried so many different configs. First I tried the 'nv' driver, with modules glx, extmod, dri, dbe, record, xtrap, freetype, and type1. Hsync = 30-80, Vrefresh=56-76. No dice. Specifically, the 'nv' driver thinks the flat panel is '1280x1024', discards the 1600x1200 modes, and it looks like crap.

Then I tried 'nvidia' driver, with modules glx, extmod, dbe, record, xtrap, freetype, and type1. The nvidia driver won't display anything. I have to use CTRL-Backspace or CTRL-ALT-F1 to recover.

I tried specifying the hsync and vrefresh (as above), and I tried omitting it. No difference.

I tried not specifying a mode line. The driver warns "mode clock 162MHz exceeds DDC maximum 160MHz" but still tries to use the mode. The result is the monitor saying "Can not display this mode."

If I do specify a mode line, for example,
130.25 1600 1648 1680 1760 1200 1203 1207 1235
or 155 1600 1704 1872 2128 1200 1201 1204 1222 +hsync +vsync
Then the monitor still complains, "Can not display this mode." Specifying option "ExactModeTimingsDVI" "true" does not help.

I am using the exact same modeline as you (130.25 1600 1648 1680 1760 1200 1203 1207 1235) with my Dell 2001FP and it works perfectly. My card is a 5200. My guess is that this is a hardware problem with either your video card, DVI cable, or monitor.

Try starting X with the following command:
startx -- -logverbose 5

then attach the new X log for review.

I have a 2001FP and I am using 1600x1200 with DVI with no problems on a FX6600GT.

I'm attaching my xorg.conf file for you in case it is of any use. I do have a modeline for 1600x1200 in it, but it works OK with or without it.
