I am having difficulties with DVI and nvidia 7300 GeForce card working with my Samsung Syncmaster 932 BW monitor. I can't get the computer to reboot or turn off. It just goes to a blank screen. I am using the generic nv driver in my xorg.conf file. I added the following line to my xorg file under device and now I get a display (non blank screen)
Option "ConnectedMonitor" "DFP". I have tried installing the driver from the NVIDIA website and when I do that it has to create a new driver since it doesnt recognize my kernel. Using Ubuntu 7.1 system. After I installed the NVIDIA driver, my monitor went to low graphics mode. I had to stop using that driver to get Ubuntu to work. Am I doing something wrong here. pls advise and thanks in advance.
