stuck at 1024x768 resolution


I have an Alienware Area-51m 7700 laptop with nVidia GForce Go 6800 video card. The max resolution is supposed to be 1680x1050, but no matter what I try, I can't get greater than 1024x768. I am running RedHat 9 and XFree86. Here is my XFree86.config:

Code:
# XFree86 4 configuration created by redhat-config-xfree86

Section "ServerLayout"
	Identifier     "Default Layout"
	Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
	InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
	InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
EndSection

Section "Files"

# RgbPath is the location of the RGB database.  Note, this is the name of the 
# file minus the extension (like ".txt" or ".db").  There is normally
# no need to change the default.
# Multiple FontPath entries are allowed (they are concatenated together)
# By default, Red Hat 6.0 and later now use a font server independent of
# the X server to render fonts.
	RgbPath      "/usr/X11R6/lib/X11/rgb"
	FontPath     "unix/:7100"
EndSection

Section "Module"
	Load  "dbe"
	Load  "extmod"
	Load  "fbdevhw"
	Load  "glx"
	Load  "record"
	Load  "freetype"
	Load  "type1"
	Load  "dri"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"

# Specify which keyboard LEDs can be user-controlled (eg, with xset(1))
#	Option	"Xleds"		"1 2 3"
# To disable the XKEYBOARD extension, uncomment XkbDisable.
#	Option	"XkbDisable"
# To customise the XKB settings to suit your keyboard, modify the
# lines below (which are the defaults).  For example, for a non-U.S.
# keyboard, you will probably want to use:
#	Option	"XkbModel"	"pc102"
# If you have a US Microsoft Natural keyboard, you can use:
#	Option	"XkbModel"	"microsoft"
#
# Then to change the language, change the Layout setting.
# For example, a german layout can be obtained with:
#	Option	"XkbLayout"	"de"
# or:
#	Option	"XkbLayout"	"de"
#	Option	"XkbVariant"	"nodeadkeys"
#
# If you'd like to switch the positions of your capslock and
# control keys, use:
#	Option	"XkbOptions"	"ctrl:swapcaps"
# Or if you just want both to be control, use:
#	Option	"XkbOptions"	"ctrl:nocaps"

EndSection

Section "DRI"
	Group        0
	Mode         0666
EndSection
The only modes that X seems to recognize are the last three. I've installed the latest nVidia drivers from the website.

I think this is a refresh rate problem, because if I change the HorizSync and VertRefresh properties, the resolution actually goes down (800x600 for example). So I think I just have the wrong values for these properties, however, I don't know the tech specs for this LCD.

I've searched this forum for two days straight with no luck. Could someone please help?

Thanks.

Hi all,

I had exactly the same problem and posted just a little earlier about it. Problem is: Vertical Refresh Rates as well as Horizontal Sync aren't probed right.
You just should add a modeline to your XF86Config / xorg.conf. There are some tools available (also online; just google a little) to calculate such a modeline.
Another problem might be that X reads out the EDID information of the display and is confused by the results. I just told the driver to ignore the EDID-information.
I'm currently using SuSE 9.2 and I'm quite satisfied. Everything works out of the box, and configuring X was a snap with YAST.

Hope that helps

tommy_vossy is right,

@cboyd:

what you need to do is to:

1. delete the HorizSync and VertRefresh lines
2. In your Device section (where the NVidia stuff is), add a line:
Code:
UseEdidFreqs "true"
For example:
Code:
Section "Device"
	Identifier  "Videocard0"
	Driver      "nvidia"
	VendorName  "NVidia"
	BoardName   "NVidia driver (generic)"
	VideoRam    262144
        UseEdidFreqs "true"
EndSection
3. add your natural resolution (1680x1050) for the screen into your Modes line (screen section):
Code:
Section "Screen"
	Identifier "Screen0"
	Device     "Videocard0"
	Monitor    "Monitor0"
	DefaultDepth     24
	SubSection "Display"
		Depth     24
		Modes    "1680x1050" "1600x1200" "1600x1024" "1400x1050" "1400x1050" "1280x1024" "1280x960" "1152x864" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
	EndSubSection
EndSection
And that should get it to work at full res.

If all else fails try using the standard vesa driver instead of nvidia (last resort). You won't get any 3D or acceleration with vesa though but it should boot into 1680x1050 mode.

@tommy_vossy:
It is XFree 4.0 so modelines won't be necessary.

Anyway cboyd if you still can't get it to work try tommy_vossy's suggestion with the modelines.
(PS if you do find some modelines, add them into the Monitor section of your XF86Config.)

Thanks for the reply db391. The recommendation you gave didn't work though. I guess I will try a modeline generator.

Thumbs up Modeline Generator

Quote:

Good suggestion. I tried http://xtiming.sourceforge.net/cgi-bin/xtiming.pl After getting a modeline from this site, I modified my /etc/X11/xorg.conf until it looked like this (in part):

Code:
Section "Monitor"
        Identifier   "Monitor0"
        VendorName   "Monitor Vendor"
        ModelName    "LCD Panel 1680x1050"
        HorizSync    31.5 - 90.0
        VertRefresh  59.0 - 61.0
        Option      "dpms"
        Modeline "1680x1050@60" 154.20 1680 1712 2296 2328 1050 1071 1081 1103
EndSection

Section "Device"
        Identifier  "Videocard1"
        Driver      "nv"
        VendorName  "nVidia"
        BoardName   "unknown"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
        Identifier "Screen0"
        Device     "Videocard1"
        Monitor    "Monitor0"
        DefaultDepth     24
        SubSection "Display"
                Viewport   0 0
                Depth     16
                Modes    "800x600" "640x480"
        EndSubSection
        SubSection "Display"
                Viewport   0 0
                Depth     24
                Modes    "1680x1050@60" "1920x1440" "1600x1200" "1400x1050" "1280x1024" "1280x960" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
        EndSubSection
EndSection
Notice how I tweaked my VertRefresh parameter slightly, to give it a little wiggle room. It originally had 60 - 60.

After installing the latest Xorg as per http://wiki.x.org/wiki/CvsPage (so that my video card would be properly detected), it worked fine at 1680x1050.

Arrgh! At Last!

How foolish of me. I should have thought to try nVidia's driver... from their website. I changed my symbolic links back to the original X installation and it works. It discarded my old modeline because it probed for refresh rates and considered the modeline to be out of range (even though the modeline works with the other driver), but I got a new one. My xorg.conf is now as follows (pertinent bits only):

Code:
Section "Monitor"
        Identifier   "Monitor0"
        VendorName   "Monitor Vendor"
        ModelName    "LCD Panel 1680x1050"
        HorizSync    29 - 64
        VertRefresh  0 - 60
        Option      "dpms"
        Modeline "1680x1050@60i" 66.01 1680 1712 1960 1992 1050 1074 1079 1103 interlace
EndSection

Section "Device"
        Identifier  "Videocard2"
        Driver      "nvidia"
        VendorName  "nVidia"
        BoardName   "unknown"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
        Identifier "Screen0"
        Device     "Videocard2"
        Monitor    "Monitor0"
        DefaultDepth     24
        SubSection "Display"
                Viewport   0 0
                Depth     16
                Modes    "800x600" "640x480"
        EndSubSection
        SubSection "Display"
                Viewport   0 0
                Depth     24
                Modes    "1680x1050@60i" "1920x1440" "1600x1200" "1400x1050" "1280x1024" "1280x960" "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
        EndSubSection
EndSection
The "interlacing" of the video mode is, of course, undetectable on an LCD (if, indeed, it's interlacing at all). I also commented out the 'Load "dri"' line, as per nVidia's instructions, and now the 3D acceleration (DRI) works like a charm (this is a GeForce 6800 Go, PCI ID 10de:00c8, on a PCI Express board). The readme didn't explicitly mention this particular PCI ID in appendix a (supported chips), but it still seems to work.

cboyd, I have exactly the same problem with exactly the same notebook, I've installed Gentoo kernel is 2.6.10-gentoo-r7.

I've managed to get 1400x1050 and 1280x1024 display in X, but I am unable to get higher.

None of the suggestions in this thread have worked so far. I get an error when using UseEdidFreqs! "UseEdidFreqs" is not a valid keyword in this section.", again I've tried adding the modelines in manually and still have had no success :-(

Logs/Configs?

echo6,

Are you using the driver from nVidia (http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux.html)? Can you post your /etc/X11/xorg.conf and /var/log/Xorg.0.log (or whatever the equivalent is under Gentoo)?
