Thread: Nvidia screen resolution size not configured correctly

  1. #1

    Default Nvidia screen resolution size not configured correctly

    Upon opening the Nvidia X Server Settings program, it reports contradictory things. The xserver configuration shows my monitor as having the resolution 1024x768, which is definitely not the dimension my monitor is capable of, while the X Screen 0 tab shows the dimensions correctly as 1920x1080.

    Xrandr provides the following information:

    Code:
    Screen 0: minimum 8 x 8, current 1920 x 1080, maximum 16384 x 16384
    DVI-I-0 disconnected primary (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
    DVI-I-1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
    DVI-I-2 connected 1920x1080+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 531mm x 298mm

       720x480        59.9  
       640x480        59.9  
    HDMI-0 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
    DVI-I-3 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)

            v: height 1080 start 1084 end 1089 total 1125           clock   60.0Hz
    Upon examining the Xorg.0.log, I noticed the following:

    While this is only a portion of the log, it is my impression that there is a problem being caused by some sort of contradiction relating to EDID. Does anyone have a suggestion how to correct this so that I have a normal 1920x1080p monitor? I note that at least one person had a similar problem, related to Ubuntu 12.04, as shown here: http://askubuntu.com/questions/16301...radicts-itself

    Additional information that may be helpful:

    I am using Opensuse 13.1. The command /sbin/lspci -nnk | grep VGA -A2 returns:

    Code:

            Kernel driver in use: nvidia
    My computer has an I5 processors, the above noted graphics card and a Samsung SyncMaster monitor capable of 1920x1080 resolution.

    Samsung SyncMaster monitors seem to be notorious for EDID issues (just google to find out for yourself). Anyway, a minimal xorg.conf can be used to get around these type of issues

    Three more files, plus what is reported from the KDE program related to Display and Monitor.

    1. I created a file .nvidia-settings-rc and it is saved in my home folder The file, I assume, lists the current settings:

    I'm trying to see which resolutions to place in xorg.conf, which I assume I have to create. I assume you are referring to this code:

    Code:
    Section "Monitor"
    Identifier "Monitor0"
    HorizSync 45.0 - 100.0
    VertRefresh 50.0 - 80.0
    Modeline "1600x1200"  210.25  1600 1720 1888 2176  1200 1203 1207 1257 -hsyns +vsync
    EndSection
    
    Section "Device"
    Identifier "Device0"
    Driver "nvidia"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Screen"
    Identifier "Screen0"
    Device "Device0"
    DefaultDepth 24
    Monitor "Monitor0"
    Option  "metamodes" "1600x1200"
    SubSection "Display"
    Depth 24
    Viewport    0 0
    EndSubSection
    EndSection
    And, I would change the code as follows, I assume - although I could be wrong:

    Code:
    Section "Monitor"
    Identifier "Monitor0"
    HorizSync 45.0 - 100.0
    VertRefresh 50.0 - 80.0
    Modeline "1920x1080"  210.25  1600 1720 1888 2176  1200 1203 1207 1257 -hsyns +vsync
    EndSection
    
    Section "Device"
    Identifier "Device0"
    Driver "nvidia"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Screen"
    Identifier "Screen0"
    Device "Device0"
    DefaultDepth 24
    Monitor "Monitor0"
    Option  "metamodes" "1920x1080"
    SubSection "Display"
    Depth 24
    Viewport    0 0
    EndSubSection
    EndSection
    I have noted the changes by underlining/bolding them.

    Does anything else need to be changed? Also, is it possible to have more than one resolution to choose from? While I plan to use 1920x1080, choice is the name of the game, if it is possible.

    You have to generate a new mode line

    hereis a tool to calculate it

    Default Re: Nvidia screen resolution size not configured correctly

    Yes that is correct. The only caveat is that the timing values do need to be compatible with your hardware, and getting it wrong can mean no working X-server, which means you have to be prepared to work from a tty console to edit or remove offending entries.

    Be careful with syntax too - the following
    Code:
    Modeline "1920x1080" 210.25  1600 1720 1888 2176  1200 1203 1207 1257 -hsyns +vsync
    needs to be
    Code:
    Modeline "1920x1080" 210.25  1600 1720 1888 2176  1200 1203 1207 1257 -hsync +vsync
    There is a way to test modelines before committing to Xorg config files. It involves generating a modeline with cvt (or gtf or similar), and adding/setting the new display mode with xrandr. Once you've got the working modeline, you can then set about adding it to the Xorg config files. Read this post for the general idea:

    Thank you. Your posts provided some very useful information. I was able, with cvt, to generate my modeline for 1920x1080:

    Code:
    Modeline "1920x1080_60.00"  173.00  1920 2048 2248 2576  1080 1083 1088 1120 -hsync +vsync
    When, however, I tried to test things with xrandr, there were issues. I first entered:

    Code:
    xrandr --newmode "1920x1080_60.00"  173.00  1920 2048 2248 2576  1080 1083 1088 1120 -hsync +vsync
    Then, after pressing enter, I entered:

    Code:
    --addmode DVI-I-2 1920x1080_60.00
    That returned:

    Code:
    X Error of failed request:  BadMatch (invalid parameter attributes)
      Major opcode of failed request:  140 (RANDR)
      Minor opcode of failed request:  18 (RRAddOutputMode)
      Serial number of failed request:  31
      Current serial number in output stream:  32
    I gather this is not what I wanted to have for output. I also ran xrandr --fb 1920x1080, which did not lead to any error message.

    I followed the comments in your other thread and, having previously tested PCLinuxOS on this same computer and still having a disk in hand, I loaded it. PCLinuxOS loads Nvidia by default. PCLinuxOS chose driver Nvidia driver 319.49, which is not one of the choices for the G01, G02 or G03 drivers in OpenSUSE. In any event, the proper resolution of 1920x1080 was loaded. I accordingly ran xrandr --verbose and then I generated modeline with cvt, which provided the following outputs:

    Code:
    [guest@localhost guest]$ xrandr --verbose

    As a comparison, I ran the xrandr -- verbose on OpenSUSE to see if the EDID matched what was shown with PCLinuxOS and then compared the output. The EDID output is identical. I also, while in PCLinuxOS, saved a configuration file using the Nvidia Server Settings program. The output follows:

    Code:

    I am not sure, at this point, how to proceed. My best guess is to install the Nvidia 319.49 driver but, as I understand the matter, that could cause problems with kernel updates - although, perhaps, I am mistaken.
