Default Re: 81.74 - Wrong resolution is used by default

Per the NVIDIA README, a bug report is generated by running nvidia-bug-report.sh as root. Please do so after you start X with the command I requested.

Using ConnectedMonitor is unlikely to provide any noticable improvement in X start times, and is likely to cause problems unless you are using it as documented.

IgnoreDisplayDevices isn't mutually exclusive of ConnectedMonitor, however unless you have a reason for using either, I'd suggest not using them.

Thanks,
Lonni

Voila -

I turned off the "ConnectedMonitor" option per your advice. You know us Linux users - always trying to squeeze the best performance out of the system.

robust - sorry, wasn't trying to hijack the thread. I thought maybe our problem was the same, and I could help out.

kdog,
Its not clear, did disabling ConnectedMonitor resolve your problem? If not, is the problem that you're experiencing color corruption?

Thanks,
Lonni

No, taking out that option did not solve the problem. I put that in there when I was trying to solve the problem originally! The only way to describe to you what it's doing is to show you. A picture is truly worth 1000 words. Since a normal screen shot won't show it, here's a digital picture.

Notice the green and red pixels all over the place? Sometimes it's a little, sometimes it's a LOT.

My monitor can only use VGA and not DVI. I don't have access to the computer with CRT for now , but I will post the logs when I can.
