display distorted on M60 with Quadro FX 700Go


I have recently installed Redhat 9 on a new Dell Precision M60. I installed the nvidia driver 4363, since many people claim that the 4496 driver does not work well in M60's.

The screen is displaying a distorted image (looks shaky, like a tv with interference). Any ideas on how to solve this? My XF86Config file is below. I have tried adding "+hsync +vsync" and "-hsync +vsync" to the modeline, but it does not work. I have also changes the frequency range... didn't solve the problem.

Yeee Haw another m60 running linux.

My monitor works fine. Though it took a while.
I hope this helps. Most seems the same aside from the refresh rates.
Check out www.flarg.com this guy has a web page on installing red hat 9 on an m60.

I'm using fedora core 1 and the 5336 drivers. Good luck. I quick question you don't happen to do 3D graphic work on this wonderful machine do you?

Heres my XF86Config file.



# XFree86 4 configuration created by pyxf86config

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

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.

# 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"
