Install Samsung 2033sw LCD and Geforce 7100/nForce 630i

I have a motherboard ECS Elitegroup with nVIDIA® Geforce 7100/nForce 630i chipset and a Samsung SyncMaster 2033sw LCD. This monitor have a resolution 1600x900@60Hz. It is the best resolution it supports.
I installed Open Suse 11.1 and then instal the driver for Geforce 7100.
Even though the viodeo recongnized by the OS is VESA. There is a bunch of Samsung monitors but there is not a reference for SyncMaster 2033sw.
I modified “xorg.conf” manually and put the values of dimensions, horizontal frequecy range and vertical frequecy range, color deep but i can’t get the maximun resolution of video card and monitor. In fact any widescreen configuration functioned well. The maximum resolution was 1024x768.
May you help me?

Add the nvidia drivers here NVIDIA - openSUSE and it should fix the resolution


Use the samsung monitor cd in yast to add it in the list

I had installed the driver that was indicated by moderator and the video adapter was recognized.
When I go to YAST and if I change any parameter in Graphic Card & Monitor, click OK and click Test a message error will show.
The error are saved in /var/log/Xorg.99.log and the main information is copied bellow:
