Default Cant get 1280x1024 @ 75Hz to work

Hi!
I try to get a 1280x1024@75Hz resolution to work on my 19" TFT connected via DVI to my GeForce FX5900. The problem is, that my monitor says it can't do 1280x1024@75Hz but only 1280x1024@60Hz. Under Windows XP I simply added a custom mode an forced the driver to override the default modes and everything is ok now, the info OSD shows 75Hz.
But on my gentoo system I cant do this. I've added the following to my xorg.conf

Code:
Option     "IgnoreEDID"  "true"
Option     "UseEdidFreqs"  "false"
The modeline I use:
Code:
ModeLine  "1280x1024/75Hz" 135.60 1280 1320 1456 1696 1024 1028 1032 1066
When I launch X with these settings I get the following output in /var/log/Xorg.0.log:
Code:

According to this output, everything should be OK, shouldn't it? But when I go into the TFTs OSD it shows 64kHz/60Hz 1280x1024...

Where ist the problem?
I've attached my xorg.conf. I'm using 8174 but had the same problem with previous releases.

yup same problem here. description @ http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...92&postcount=7

refer to:
http://hannah.karatebob.com/~pvp/xorg.conf & http://hannah.karatebob.com/~pvp/Xorg.0.log

NOTE: the display is rated at 75Hz vertical refresh by the manufacturer and EDID says it's capable... no problem under Windows... as labba stated

Please start X with the following command:
startx -- -logverbose 5

and then generate and post a bug report.

Also, did this problem exist with 1.0-7676?

Thanks,
Lonni

Hi Lonni,
yes, this problem was also present with 7676.

nvidia-bugreport is attached...

Edit: attached another version with enabled edid information

@labba, i'm not netllama but, i'd assume he'd want to see the output of startx -- -logverbose 5 while EDID probing was left enabled (just an assumption.)

Default Re: Cant get 1280x1024 @ 75Hz to work

labba,
Why are you using the ConnectedMonitor and IgnoreDisplayDevices options?

According to the EDID in your bug report, your display can't do 75Hz at 1280x1024:
######
(--) NVIDIA(0): 1280 x 1024 @ 60Hz
(--) NVIDIA(0): Pixel Clock : 108.00 MHz
(--) NVIDIA(0): HRes, HSyncStart : 1280, 1328
(--) NVIDIA(0): HSyncEnd, HTotal : 1440, 1688
(--) NVIDIA(0): VRes, VSyncStart : 1024, 1025
(--) NVIDIA(0): VSyncEnd, VTotal : 1028, 1066
#######

And is failing here:
(II) NVIDIA(0): Not using mode "1280x1024_75.00" (hsync out of range)

I suppose you could try tweaking the HorizSync range in your xorg.conf, but based on the EDID, your display cannot do 75Hz@1280x1024.

Does the User's Manual for the display state that it can? If so, can you point me to it online?

Thanks,
Lonni

To be honest: I don't really know :-) Should I remove these Options?

The Display does support 1280x1024@75Hz but officially only if it is connected via the analogue VGA connector. But I know it can handle this mode when connected via DVI, too, because with windows XP it's just enough to insert a custom mode into the driver and the display runs fine with 75Hz. This should be possilbe with the linux driver, too, shouldn't it?

Unless you have a reason for using those X options, then I don't see a point. Do you get better/different/worse results without them?

Based on your last bug report, your HorizSync range was the reason why the mode failed. As I suggested earlier, you can try tweaking the range (broadening it is likely the easiest way for now) and see if that helps. You can also try adding the IgnoreEDID X option.

However, if 1280x1024@75Hz isn't officially supported, then the Linux driver is doing the right thing, and I'd argue the Windows driver has a bug. You could end up damaging your display (or at the least, shortening its lifespan) by forcing it into a refresh rate that is outside of its documented abilities.

Thanks,
Lonni

@netllama my only concern with having a vertical refresh at 75hz is due to my lack of understanding of LCD response times. would the vertical refresh affect a monitor's (specifically and limited to LCDs) response time in ms?

I don't believe that the response time has any connection to the refresh rate.

are you going to trust the EDID information and discontinue your investigation of the supposed problem?
