Thanks Ed - didn't work but still do appreciate it!

At any rate, I left my Xorg.conf at only listing 1400x1050 - my max res.  I
get the following error(?) in my Xorg.0.log file:

NV(0): Not using mode "1400x1050" (no mode of this name)
NV(0): Virtual size is 640x480 (pitch 640)
NV(0): Default mode "640x480" 25.2 MHz, 31.5 kHz, 60.0 Hz
NV(0): Modeline "640x480" 25.20 640 656 752 800 480 490 492 525 -hsync
NV(0): DPI set to (75, 75)

Anyone else have any ideas or run into this before?

OK, if ANY will do, here's SOME.

Same thing happened to me. I think it is a bug, but instead of worrying too
much about it, I just took the other resolutions out of my config file, now
all is good.

This may not be suitable to you, but I don't guarantee anything I say is
worth an ounce of anything anyway.
