Suse 9.2 on ZV5000

I am having trouble with the video on my system. I've got the "64MB NVIDIA(R) GeForce(TM) 4 440 Go + 1394" graphics card and "15.4" WXGA BrightView Widescreen (1280x800)" screen. When I try to configure the system to use these the screen doesn't display correctly. The right hand portion of the screen displays black for a 1.5 inch strip from top to bottom and approximately 1/2 inch of the bottom display as a smear. I've found one other person having this problem on the NVidia forum, but no one over there hase been able to assist with correcting the problem.

Hi Carl,

Try the following:

edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Add the "Modeline" entry on the monitor section with the values shown below (double check the specs of your monitor for Horizontal and Vertical sync):

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Monitor0"
VendorName "Monitor Vendor"
ModelName "WXGA BrightView"
HorizSync 31.5 - 90.0
VertRefresh 60.0 - 60.0
Option "dpms"
ModeLine "1280x800" 98.9 1280 1352 1488 1696 800 801 804 833 -hsync +vsync

On section "Screen" add "1280x800" on Modes, so you have something like:

Modes "1280x800" "1024x768" "800x600"

Let me know if it works.
