try to remove the 1280x1024 and see if 1024x768 works. ( for some reason, 1280x1024 will not work on my GeForce 4)

The funny thing is that I just changed this laptop from redhat to fedora... redhat 9 had no problems with the video. I ran it at 1280x1024 iwth a default install

Well,

you could try redo your config (xorgconfig) (make sure you back up your original xorg.conf file first).

I wouldnt know where to begin to "redo" the file. I might just uninstall it and reinstall or reinstall everything :^O

When i first downloaded the installer... I found a readme that used --extract-only then ran through make
I had the problem with that. Then i tried installing it by going to init 3 and running the .run but I said "yes" to the prompt to download the file from nvidia's ftp and had problems on that install THEN i ran it again and said NO to that prompt and im still sitting here lookin at some HUGE icons heh

hopefully Ill get it right this time !

Thanks for all your help

well, I feel retarded....

I went into the Display Settings GUI and expanded my selected monitor (Generic CRT Display) and chose 'Monitor 1600x1200' restarted X then all of my resolutions were in the drop down to choose from and I can scroll through them all with cntrl alt -/+

Haven't installed any games yet like Quake so we'll see how that goes next

Thanks again for your help J
