Thread: acer aspire 8930g resolution incorrect

    Default acer aspire 8930g resolution incorrect

    Hi all,

    I am running openSuSE 11.1 on Acer Aspire 8930g, I try to configure the nvidia drivers, the maximum resolution I currently get is only 1024x768 with sax2, also double-checked with
    Code:
    xwininfo -root
    the screen is capable of going to 1920x1080 as it does without issue under Vista.

    Then I tried the following code, while using the nvidia driver, (the modeline was calculated using cvt):
    Code:
    xrandr --newmode 1920x1080  220.64  1920 2056 2264 2608  1080 1081 1084 1128  -HSync +Vsync
    xrandr --addmode default 1920x1080
    xrandr --output default --mode 1920x1080
    that returns me "configure crtc 0 failed"

    then I switched to Driver "nv" in the /etc/X11/xorg.conf and restarted the X server (init 3 then init 5)
    there the maximum default resolution is 1680x945
    following the same xrandr method, I am unable to switch to the full 1920x1080

    I am unsure what to do next to solve that.

    That's my current xorg.conf:
    Code:
    # nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig
    # nvidia-xconfig:  version 1.0  (buildmeister@builder63)  Fri Aug 14 17:54:58 PDT 2009

    yes, yast monitor will list 1920x1080 but when it tests the setting with sax2 before exiting, then sax2 shows 1024x768 although I selected 1920x1080@60Hz with 24 bits depth

    Sorry. To clarify, I do on my Box but my Laptop picks up as Lenovo brand and works OK. But selecting Generic LCD can work better often.

    yes, with yast graphics/monitor, I see the card selected is nvidia 9600M GT as expected, then for monitor I press "change" and select
    LCD --> 1920x1080@60Hz
    LCD is the top of the list of different brands of monitors.

    But after clicking OK, the test screen comes up (with arrows and squares in each corner) and it shows 1024x768

    So was there or is there any Acer option for the screen?

    Have you rebooted since installing the driver? Or at least logout and back in?

    yes I also tried all the "ACER ASPIRE" monitors listed. Everytime sax2 test comes back with 1024x768
    I usually go to init 3 then init 5, I also rebooted a few times while I was playing with the xrandr command to try to force the resolution.

    also I might need to add I am using the latest nvidia drivers v. 185.18.36
    NVIDIA DRIVERS 185.18.36
    and that particular laptop has also been reported to work with ubuntu http://www.linlap.com/wiki/acer+aspire+8930g
