Default Nvidia geforce4 420 go issue.

I have a similar problem to this post:

http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/show...21320&posted=1

The following is my xorg.conf file:

Code:
# nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig
# nvidia-xconfig:  version 1.0  (buildmeister@builder3)  Wed Nov  1 19:47:17 PST 2006

# /etc/X11/xorg.conf (xorg X Window System server configuration file)
#
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
#
# Edit this file with caution, and see the /etc/X11/xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man /etc/X11/xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
#
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# package.
#
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command:
#   sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

And for the nvidia package installed:

Code:
root@enceladus:/home/steve# dpkg -l | grep nvidia
ii  nvidia-glx                                 1.0.9629+2.6.17.6-2~amaranth         NVIDIA binary XFree86 4.x/X.Org driver
ii  nvidia-kernel-common                       20051028+1ubuntu7                    NVIDIA binary kernel module common files
The issue is such that I only have about 50% of my screen viewable on my display. More specifically, I have a small display in the middle of my screen and about 2" of black bordering each side of it.

Anyone have any advice?

Cheers

Have you tried using X at the native (usually the max) resolution of your DFP?

I've set it to 1024x768 which is native.

Default Re: Nvidia geforce4 420 go issue.

According to your bug report, you're using the 'nv' X driver, not the nvidia X driver. Under which X driver are you seeing this problem?

Also, you have 1.0-9629 installed, which is no longer supported. Please install 1.0-9631 if the problem is with the nvidia X driver.

thanks,
Lonni

I am now running the official nvidia driver (which is keeping my resolution at 800x600) and the bug report log file is at http://eckserver.eckerd.edu/~bordels...bug-report.log (refresh the page if you see the same info). I'll install the newest version and go from there.

Cheers

According to the new bug report you're still using 1.0-9629.

Have you reviewed this post?

check again, I'm using 9639. The bug report is at http://eckserver.eckerd.edu/~bordels...ug-report1.log I also just checked over the post that you linked to and will get rid of linux-restricted-modules.
