RHDT WS 4 on Sony Vaio...

Hi All,

I have a Sony Viao, model VGN-SZ465N with an Nvidia GeForce Go 7400note book graphics processing unit(GPU) (Speed Model)/Intel Graphics media Accelerator 950 (Stamina Mode).

The problem I'm having is that I've installed RHDT 4U5 but for some reason, I can't get the full screen view out of the OS. There is about an inch cut off on both the left and right sides a 1/4 inch on the top and bottom. I have tried different settings in the Display options under LCD settings and CRT settings, I have tried to edit xorg.conf and add in under the "Screen0" setting "1280x800", to see if it will make a difference but to no avail. I've gone to the Nvidia web site and found this link:

but I'm not sure which is the right one. I then went to this link and found this driver:

but I'm not sure if this is the way to go either. Thanks for your input.
