Default Need Custom EDID file for Toshiba Sattelite Pro M10

Like the title says... is there anyone with a custom EDID file for this laptop?

I followed about any guide to get the Nvidia driver working on this laptop 6 times. I think it might be a wrong EDID file. It's the only thing I have not tried yet.

Help is greatly appreciated!

Have you disabled EDID and tried a modeline?

I have done a clean install and am running updates now. I will report back after I have tried again.

I did a clean install, installed nvidia driver 9639, disabled bulletproof, stopped gdm, ran dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg. Answered all the questions. Then I eddited /etc/modpro.d/options and added: options nvidia NVreg_SoftEDIDs=0 NVreg_Mobile=1
After that I editted /etc/X11/xorg.conf and added
Option "UseDisplayDevice" "DFP-0"
to the screen section

Everything is working now
