Default Incorrect resolution and instability

I have done a good search here, and have not found the solution to my problems, sorry if I have missed it.

I am using the 100.x driver that was packaged for my distro. (PCLinuxOS)

I haven't had any stability issues with it before, so I am convinced it is this new hdtv lcd that is causing all the problems. I have tried many, many times to hack xorg to get the correct res(1360x768) , adding modelines and trying various things I have seen on the web.

1360x768 is even listed as a option, in the nvidia cp, and I am stuck at 1024x768. I previously had another 15" lcd connected just in case I could not display anything on the new one, and configured them as twin view.

Where the instablilty comes in is with gfx intense games or visuals like in amarok. X also crashed when I ran the bug report script, or click the opengl/glx info tab in the nvidia settings cp.

I no longer have the 15" connected and just want the 23" correctly configured at the correct res. I am attaching the bug report, and will gladly post any more info that is needed.

Help is greatly appreciated
Bacon

Looks like the NVIDIA driver is not correctly installed:

(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the GLX module; please check in your X
(EE) NVIDIA(0): log file that the GLX module has been loaded in your X
(EE) NVIDIA(0): server, and that the module is the NVIDIA GLX module. If
(EE) NVIDIA(0): you continue to encounter problems, Please try
(EE) NVIDIA(0): reinstalling the NVIDIA driver.

No EDID is being detected for your CRT:
(WW) NVIDIA(GPU-0): Unable to read EDID for display device CRT-1

Was this bug report generated while both problems were present?

It was generated while I had the resolution of 1024x768, and the error report script did cause X to crash, or to try to restart, don't know if it's supposed to restart X.

After I posted I kept trying to fix it, and was able to get the correct res. However after restarting X, I am back at 1024x786, and have to go into the nvidia settings cp and reconfigure it.

I was able to have the correct res available in the nvidia cp by configuring the monitor at 1280x768, the closest res available there, with PCC (similar to mandravia's MCC) It uses gtf.

I then added the following modeline, and restarted X
ModeLine "1366x768" 85.5 1360 1440 1552 1792 768 771 777 795 +hsync +vsync

I can run the script again if you want.

Thanks

Bacon

Until you reinstall the driver to resolve the GLX module problem, all other problems are really not relevant.

A little update, I reinstalled the driver, and I am able to get the correct res by adding a modeline to xorg, but it defaults back to 1024x768 on x restart. I have to go into the nvidia settings panel and reset it.

Can anyone help me get xorg corrected to where it will start with the correct res?

Thanks
Bacon

Not likely until you provide a verbose bug report (per the sticky post) which captures this problem.

Is your CRT directly attached to the graphics card, or are you using an intermediate device such as a KVM?

No it's directly connected via the vga connector. I tried to get the edid directly from toshiba, but they told there wasn't one for this model, and the only info available would be in the manual.

This is a hdtv lcd-dvd combo, not a regular monitor.
