The kdeinfocenter information suggests that the driver is installed and working correctly; if in doubt, please attach the X log file and the output of `ldd glxinfo`, as well as `glxinfo`.

well.. if driver is working why do I get 1024x768 as max resolution in 'Display Configuration' in KDE...
I'll get the X log and upload it in few minutes...

is the IRQ situation ok in your opinion?

the whole X log is attached to the post...however few lines of interest in chronological order:

i've upgraded to 8774 driver.. Xlog is confirming that but when I executed make install i got after a while:

I don't know how to unload previous driver .. however it seems it's using already the new one.. however still 1024x768 resolution!!!!!!

Default Re: Nvidia GeForce Go 7600

amazing.. now I even commented the horiz and vertic parameters..

Identifier "Monitor0"
ModelName "Unprobed Monitor (no DDC)"
#HorizSync 31.0 - 83.0
#VertRefresh 56.0 - 75.0


and it just does not change anything????? no different errors.. and still 1024x768 resolution!!!
what's wrong here?? maybe Edid passing wrong info? is Edid used laptop monitor too?

Default Re: Nvidia GeForce Go 7600

added the

Option "UseEDIDFreqs" "FALSE" parameter and decommented the horiz and vertical actual parameters in the monitor section... nothing!

then i went drastic and used..

Option "UseEDID" "FALSE" but nothing...

and in the X log I even found

(WW) NVIDIA(0): No valid modes for "1280x1024"; removing.
(II) NVIDIA(0): Validated modes:
(II) NVIDIA(0): "1024x768"
(II) NVIDIA(0): "800x600"
(II) NVIDIA(0): "640x480"
(II) NVIDIA(0): Virtual screen size determined to be 1024 x 768
(--) NVIDIA(0): DPI set to (98, 99); computed from "UseEdidDpi" X config option

this is turning into joke now...

So the problem is that the 1280x1024 mode is invalidated? Please remove any EDID related X configuration file options, start X with the -logverbose 6 option and then attach the resulting X log file.

Default Re: Nvidia GeForce Go 7600

I was using the 'Options' lines in the wrong place..
noticed that they have to go below the nvidia line.. like this..

Identifier "Card0"
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "nVidia Corporation"
BoardName "Unknown Board"
Option "UseEDID" "false"

this way I had no display at all.. I had to ctrl+alt+F1 to get a console and edit XF86Config to get the gui back.

I also tried

Identifier "Card0"
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "nVidia Corporation"
BoardName "Unknown Bo
Option "UseEDIDFreqs" "FALSE"
Option "UseEDIDDpi" "FALSE"
Option "ModeValidation" "NoEdidModes"

and I've noticed that fonts got smaller.. and refresh rate went from 60 to 75Hz but still nothing better than 1024x768 available and the usual line

(WW) NVIDIA(0): No valid modes for "1280x1024"; removing.
(II) NVIDIA(0): Validated modes:
(II) NVIDIA(0): "1024x768"
(II) NVIDIA(0): "800x600"
(II) NVIDIA(0): "640x480"

also tried the

Option "ModeValidation" "NoEdidDFPMaxSizeCheck" but nothing..

Angry Re: Nvidia GeForce Go 7600

ok guys...

help..

I've tried everything..
the last now is I ran startx -- -logverbose 6 and attached you have the x org log.. I ran it with edid enabled by default and no horiz and vert parameters specified in XF86Config

the funny thing is that it shows the 1440 max res (of which my card is capable.. as valid!!! hahahaha!!

but it does not give it as available to me...

Hi Mestam,

Short answer: I'd recommend changing your xorg.conf to request the modes:

Modes "nvidia-auto-select" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"

(you could replace "nvidia-auto-select" with "1440x900"; they will both
correspond to the same thing in your configuration; 1440x900 is the
native resolution of your DFP, and will be the mode that looks the best
on your DFP)

You can't do 1280x1024, and even if you could, it wouldn't look good
because the GPU would have to scale horizontally from 1024 pixels in
your desktop to 900 pixels displayed on your DFP.



Long answer: there are several reasons why no 1280x1024 modes are
getting validated for your DFP. Some of them are configuration issues,
but there is also a hardware limitation, too.

1) In the verbose log you attached, all the 1280x1024 modes are getting
discarded because the pixelclock (the number of pixels, in millions, that
the mode requires to be sent to the DFP every second) of the 1280x1024
modes is considered to be larger than what the DFP can accept; the DFP's
max pixel clock is, in this case, inferred from the list of modes in
the EDID. You could work around this with "NoEdidMaxPClkCheck" flag to
the "ModeValidation" option.

2) The NVIDIA X driver defaults to using the HorizSync and VertRefresh
ranges from the DFP's EDID. After addressing issue #1, you might
encounter problems here. You can set the "UseEdidFreqs" option to FALSE
to make the X driver using the frequency information from the Monitor
section instead.

3) Even if you address the frequency validation issues above, the X driver
is still going to prohibit 1280x1024, because it has inferred from the
EDID that the DFP's native resolution is 1440x900. This means that the
NVIDIA GPU must scale from the mode size to the DFP's native resolution.
The NVIDIA GPU can scale from a smaller mode size UP to 1440x900, but
the NVIDIA GPU cannot scale from a larger mode size DOWN to 1440x900
(1280x1024 has more pixels, horizontally, than 1440x900). Even if the
GPU was capable of downscaling from a 1280x1024 desktop to a 1440x900
native resolution on the DFP, it wouldn't look crisp, and there would
be filtering and you would likely lose some information in your desktop.

For the crispest image, it's recommended to run your desktop at the
native resolution of your DFP. In this case, that's 1440x900.

I hope that helps.

Andy thanks a million for the very exaustive explanation!

As soon as I get back home today I will test your suggestions and revert back to you.
However.. that explain why setting the Option "UseEDID" "FALSE" I had no screen at all! I find hard to believe though the monitor can't display the 1280x1024 resolution.. however.. let me test your suggestions and see..
thanks!

Andy thanks again!
You saw it right..

1440x900 is the native resolution and I modified the XF86Config (I don't have the xorg.conf file) adding the value suggested..
it works great.. don't know yet about performance and stuff.. but I am not a gamer.. just wanted something better than 1024x768..
thanx!!
