Another 640x400 issue -_-

Postby J4ck » Thu Feb 11, 2010 10:42 pm

Yes yes yes here goes another one

I've spent several hours googling this issue and scouring through the forums to find that this is a pretty common issue and I can't seem to find a solution anywhere. I've tried nvidia-xconfig command in terminal and I've even tried copying whole xconf files and pasting them to my own

Nothing works.

I think what it's coming down to is the display itself. I'm using a 32" Panasonic Viera as a monitor and it's showing as a crt-0 in the NVidia driver center.

I'm at my wits end here. Here are my graphics card specs PLEASE help!!!!

GeForce 8600 gt (running x86 186. drivers installed through EnvyNG)

Which Mint?
Version and edition please
I see in that xorg.conf that section screen is missing which makes it pretty much useless
Something like this instead

Code: Select all

Section "Monitor"
   Identifier   "Configured Monitor"
        HorizSync 35.0 - 90.0
        VertRefresh 43.0 - 72.0
        Option "DPMS"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
   Identifier   "Default Screen"
   Monitor      "Configured Monitor"
   Device      "Configured Video Device"
EndSection

Section "Device"
   Identifier   "Configured Video Device"
        Driver "nvidia"
EndSection

Section "ServerFlags"
   Option   "DontZap"   "False"
EndSection

Remove Section "ServerFlags" if you have Mint 8 Helena
The HorizSync value is completely out of range! It's for something like 800x600 and a 32 inch TV has 1920x1080
For both Gloria and Helena no I/O should be in xorg.conf

Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
