      Hi all,

      I'm having a hard time to find the right modelines for using an external
      projector with my
      Inspiron 5150
      NVidia GeForce 4
      XFree 4.3.0
      Projector: Hitachi CP-X275

      Visibly, I can't find the correct refresh rates (for any resolution but in
      particular 1024x768). I get the "swim effect" for any of the default XFree
      modelines and for the following ones:

      Modeline "1024x768" 65 1024 1032 1176 1344 768 771 777 806
      -hsync -vsync
      Modeline "1024x768" 65.00 1024 1048 1184 1344 768 771 777 806
      -hsync -vsync
      Modeline "1024x768" 65.004 1024 1048 1184 1344 768 771 777 806
      -hsync -vsync
      ModeLine "1024x768" 75 1024 1036 1172 1332 768 791 797 822
      -hsync -vsync
      Modeline "1024x768" 75 1024 1048 1184 1328 768 771 777 806
      -hsync -vsync
      Modeline "1024x768" 78 1024 1046 1142 1304 768 769 772 800
      +hsync +vsync
      Modeline "1024x768" 78.80 1024 1040 1136 1312 768 769 772 800
      +hsync +vsync
      Modeline "1024x768" 79.51 1024 1056 1216 1312 768 770 786 808
      Modeline "1024x768" 85 1024 1032 1152 1360 768 784 787 823
      Modeline "1024x768" 98.9 1024 1056 1216 1408 768 782 788 822
      -HSync -VSync

      dccprobe gives:

      Videocard DDC probe results
      Description: NVIDIA Corporation NV34 Board - p135nz
      Memory (MB): 32

      Monitor DDC probe results
      ID: HTC6627
      Name: LCD PROJECTO
      Horizontal Sync (kHZ): 31-92
      Vertical Sync (HZ) : 56-120
      Width (mm): 0
      Height(mm): 0

      Anybody can help?? The problem seems worse when the dot clock rate
      is higher. BTW, I have no problem using this projector when I boot my
      laptop in Windows.

      Thanks.

      AirBete.

              Hi,

              Try the following:

              Add
              Option "TwinView"
              Option "SecondMonitorHorizSync" 31-90
              Option "SecondMonitorVertRefresh" 58-75
              in your "Device" section and remove

              Option "Xinerama" "on"
              in your "ServerLayout" section.

              That's how I solved the problem you're talking about.
