Anyways, this is how I have received the most success with my I4100
with the Nvidia driver:
I have a monitor section for a test monitor with unreasonable wide
ranges for synchronization frequencies:
ModelName "Section for testing an unknown monitor's capabilities"
# HorizSync is in kHz unless units are specified.
# An unreasonable wide interval
# VertRefresh is in Hz unless units are specified.
# VertRefresh may be a comma separated list of discrete values, or a
# comma separated list of ranges of values.
# An unreasonable wide interval
Normally, I count on the monitor to provide me its specifications via
the EDID protocol. However, the projectors I have come across does
not do so, so instead I configure my monitor to use TvinWiev (if I
correctly, this is an option specific to the nvidia driver so with
another card, you'll have to check the manual for the name of the
similar option). This is setting up the card to use two monitors
which seems to be similar to what Windoze does.
