Exclamation Problems w Toshiba Satellite 1415-173s

Hi, I've been working for a couple of days now trying to get my nVidia Geforce 420 Go on my Fedora Core 5 (2080).

I've used all the methods and recomendations that have been posted in the forum but it seems that my system ignores everything.

X starts and everything but the display looks kinda strange....

Someone please help me!!!

(I'm including my Xorg.0.log, modprobe.conf and xorg.conf files)

Unhappy Re: Problems w Toshiba Satellite 1415-173s

Here are some details of my problem:

There is a black stripe (of about 2 inches) on de right side of the display, and the top side of the visible area gets repeated in the bottom part of the display (an inch)with a flikering part (of about half inch) between the visible area and the repeated area (it seems like a bad TV reception)

When running "xdpyinfo | grep -B1 dot" I get:

dimensions: 1024x768 pixels (342x260 millimeters)
resolution: 76x75 dots per inch

This isn't technically wrong because all the display [1024x768 pixels (342x260 millimeters) is there but like behind the black and repeated area....

The real visible area is of about 246x186 millimiters.....

I really don't know what else to do
