Question Resolution is too small: expect 1600x1200 get 1280x1024

Hello,

for some reason the resolution for my X is to small for a quite a while now.
I'm running gentoo on a Celsius Mobile H with an 1600x1200 screen but xorg refuses this capability and switsches to 1280x1024.

Since I have no idea where to look and who to ask, I try it here.

There is a nvidia-bug-report.log to look at, I think there is all neccessary included.

Thanks and cheers

Hank

Hello,

is there a chance to get an answer or at least a hint where to look or what to check or change? Would I need to share more information, please let me know.

Sorry for my impatience, but I'd love seeing my screen again with high resolution.

Thanks and cheers

Hank

According to your Xorg log 1600x1200 is rejected because the horizontal sync is out of range. You specify HorizSync 29-95 but the nvidia driver detects HorizSync 29.000-76.000 kHz. I can't say any more because I know enough about LCDs/TFTs etc.

I'm having the same problem, it is in relation to what the nvidia driver detects your lcd's Hz to be capable of but I hope there will be a way around it, bit of a flaw in the nvidia driver it seems. I'll let you know if I find out anything. You can achieve the full resolution of your monitor simply by lowering the Hz within Sax2.

If you are sure about the specs of your hardware, you can tell the nvidia driver to ignore the probed values. Just use

Option "UseEdidFreqs" "false"

Hello,

thanks for your replys, I tried this for monitor and just as magic it runs as expected:
Code:
Section "Monitor"
        Identifier   "Monitor0"
        VendorName   "Monitor Vendor"
        ModelName    "Monitor Model"
EndSection
kind regards

It's done in /etc/X11/xorg.conf, in the "Device" section. Look in the readme supplied with the driver.
