nvidia nv17 GeForce 4 440 Go 64 maximum resolution


On several differnt distros (SuSE, Ubuntu, ....) I have tried getting the accelerated nVidia driver to work at the native resolution of my video card (1600x1200). On the default install, nv driver, I get 1600x1200 beautiful, but when I switch to the GL 3d accelerated, I get only a max of 1400x1050 or 1440x1050. I have been through many forums and have yet to find anything definite to work. Everything I have found so far was for resolutions 1280x12024 and under. 1600 looks so nice and sharp, lesser resolutions don't look so hot. Tried the last 4 versions of the nVidia driver and the results are the same. Again, this is an nVidia GeForce 4 440 Go 64M video card with a native 1600x1200 LCD digital monitor on my Toshiba Satellite S105-701 laptop. Below is my xorg.conf.

Check the X log, located in /var/log/. It should report available resolutions and what resolutions are disabled (and why).

Thanks for the advice, was working with this all night. I changed all sorts of options and hsync / vsync rates. I got to where the screen will come up as 1600x1200 but will be split in half and slightly scrambled. Again, the nv driver allows me to come up fine in 1600x1200. I ran a gtf to get a modeline for my display. I tried going back to a 5336 driver because I remember reading something about someone's success, but in Ubuntu it is damn near impossible to compile an old nVidia driver. So I am stuck again. Here is the changes of my current xorg.conf :

Section "Device"

# Option "EnableAGPSBA"
Option "Mobile" "3"
# Option "NoBandWidthTest"
EndSection

and here is an edited Xorg.0.log with just what I think are the interesting parts:

Great News!!!! I found the issue and now have 3d acceleration at 1600x1200. The key all along was the Horizontal Sync Rate. After days of searching and studying, this is what works. In your xorg.conf file, make sure the following sections look like this:

Section "Device"
Identifier "NVIDIA Corporation NV17 [GeForce4 440 Go]"
Driver "nvidia"
BusID "AGP:1:0:0"
VideoRam 65536
Option "IgnoreEDID" "true"
Option "NoLogo"
Option "NvAGP" "1"
Option "PowerSaverHsyncOn"
Option "Mobile" "2"
Option "NoBandWidthTest" #Don't know if it has any effect

EndSection

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Toshiba"
# Option "DPMS"
HorizSync 75
VertRefresh 60
#This modeline and the refresh rates above are the key!!
Modeline "1600x1200" 160.96 1600 1704 1880 2160 1200 1201 1204 1242 -HSync -Vsync

EndSection



Oh, and a correction for the search engines....This is on a Toshiba Satellite 5105-s701 laptop.


Good luck to everyone else out there running the same hardware!

just a quick note: there need to be more follows ups like this when a problem is solved. this is a perfect follow up. This is what helps the community, lets try to see more like this guys

Talking

I was having the same problem with my Dell Latitude C840 which has a Samsung LTN150U2-L02 1600x1200 res LCD screen.

This lcd screen+nvidia drivers worked fine using xfree86 v4 & debian woody or sarge but wouldn't work with my newly loaded Kubuntu distro that installs xorg by default.

I searched high & low until I found this post.

Well done Kingsnake & thanks for that.

And now what about TwinView?

Hi KingSnake,

I have to thank you also for this precious thread. It helped me solve my nVidia problem on a Toshiba Satellite 5000 with GForce 4. The latest nVidia driver works fine in native resolution (1600x1200) now but the TwinView feature (external VGA Monitor) does not work yet. Did you try it? If not, I will work on it and post an xorg.conf update here if I am lucky

I have a Toshiba Satellite 5105-S701, but the above configuration does not work for me
What happens is that it seems that X tries to start or change resolutions a few times, but witout success and then it shows the error window.

I'm using Ubuntu 5.04 and Nvidia driver version: 1.0.7174-0ubuntu1

Does anyone know what I could be doing wrong?

Here's my Xorg.log:

Here is my entire xorg.conf

The key should be just those sections I posted previously but I'll post the whole thing for complete comparison.

# /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 commands:
#
# cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.custom
# sudo sh -c 'md5sum /etc/X11/xorg.conf >/var/lib/xfree86/xorg.conf.md5sum'

Note that the simplest fix for this problem is to set "NVreg_Mobile=0" when you load the nVidia kernel module (eg. "modprobe nvidia NVreg_Mobile=0").

Then you don't need the custom modeline or to disable the Edid stuff, or anything special other than make sure you monitor section has a HorizSync and VertRefresh set to whatever.

Works for me anyway. I'm posting here so that the next time I forget I won't waste all freaking day trying to make it work.

Thanks Lisux,
I am using Kubuntu 5.10 (Breezy Badger) on a Dell Latitude C840 using nVidia Geforce 4 440 Go and after replacing 'nvidia' with 'nvidia NVreg_Mobile=0', a quick reboot and my native 1600x1200 resolution now works. This is probably the easiest fix to this problem.
Just replying here to add my hardware information to the list

Where to put the settings

I keep loosing the place to put these settings so here it is:
/etc/modprobe.d/nvidia (could be /etc/modprobe.conf depending on your distro)
options nvidia NVreg_Mobile=0

oh and on Kubuntu Fiesty Fawn Herd3 I also needed to put this line in my device section of xorg.conf
Option "UseDisplayDevice" "DFP"
