Nvidia Geforce2 GTS, LG FLatron 774


Maybe any of you have the same hardware:

Nvidia Geforce 2 GTS
Monitor 17" LG Flatron 774FT

... or maybe you know what problem do I have...

I've just installed nvidia's drivers following their instructions of deactivating the use of DRI and GLcore and activating GLX.

I've been trying with many combinations of the XConfig-4 file parameters like framebuffer and resolutions, and all the correct values of refresh rates for my monitor, but my X can't start with this new drivers I have to go back to the nv drivers (I'm under Debian SID)
Curiously once it worked but I think I changed something and when i rebooted it didn't work... (anyway I don't remember any change done)

Thank you very much!!

please, help!

Does the monitor really matter in the X configuration?

The monitor you pick determines things like refresh rates (not sure how this affects LCDs, only played with LCD monitors once on a laptop in passing) so you *could* try a different monitor selection which would make X use different refresh rates.
