Ok... I was hoping that was the answer but it didn't work..
xorg.conf is so bloody annoying, it's cost me so many hours this week... Why isn't there just one tool that fixes it properly...
When I ran the "system-config-display" tool my exact monitor/model wasn't list there so I set it to generic LCD Panel 1920x1080... it asked me to reboot.... When I come back and run "system-config-display" again it shows the maximum resolution I can pick as 1024x768 ... but it still shows that I've chosen a 1920x1080 generic LCD... sigh
When I run "nvidia-settings" I can crank it up to 1920x1080... looks great.. but doesnt stick upon reboot
Any other suggestions would be much appreciated.
I just noticed this in my Xorg.0.log:
(WW) Open ACPI failed (/var/run/acpid.socket) (No such file or directory)
(II) NVIDIA(0): Initialized GPU GART.
(II) NVIDIA(0): ACPI: failed to connect to the ACPI event daemon; the daemon
(II) NVIDIA(0): may not be running or the "AcpidSocketPath" X
(II) NVIDIA(0): configuration option may not be set correctly. When the
(II) NVIDIA(0): ACPI event daemon is available, the NVIDIA X driver will
(II) NVIDIA(0): try to use it to receive ACPI event notifications. For
(II) NVIDIA(0): details, please see the "ConnectToAcpid" and
(II) NVIDIA(0): "AcpidSocketPath" X configuration options in Appendix B: X
(II) NVIDIA(0): Config Options in the README.
From what I understand ACPI is how the monitor reports back to the computer what resolutions it supports. This has to be related to my problems...
Anyone know how I go about fixing it?
