Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 443349
Panel size misread using Quadro FX 540
Last modified: 2008-06-19 16:27:13 EDT
Description of problem:
In spite of the fact that I have set the monitor to the generic "LCD Panel
1920x1200", the highest resolution available in Display Settings is 1280x960.
I have tried the nouveau driver as well, but the behavior is the same. (That may
indicate that this isn't a driver issue at all; but I'm not sure where else to
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
My monitor is an NEC MultiSync LCD 2470WNX. My video card is a Quadro FX 540.
Thanks for the bug report. We have reviewed the information you have provided

Running without any xorg.conf produced no apparent change in behavior.
Changing version to '9' as part of upcoming Fedora 9 GA.
More information and reason for this action is here:
While the effect is similar to bug 234824, I'm not sure it's a duplicate. In this case, xorg seems to be
misreading the panel size as 1280x1024.
However, this does appear to be an issue with the video card rather than the monitor. When swapping the
card out for a Quadro FX 1700, this problem is not present.
Sure. The panel size we get back is a function of whatever the BIOS set up for
us. Obviously different cards have different spins of the BIOS.
