Could be. It would probably be enough to put the H-Sync and V-Sync
ranges for your monitor in xorg.conf. Haven't done this in a while so I
can't give you exact details, but google should have plenty of examples.




Thanks much Andrei for the idea. I have another machine running with
nvidia (a newer model) just fine. I copied the relevant portions to the
machine I was working on, rebooted and all is fine.


Not sure why though the dpkg-reconfigure xsession-xorg didn't find and
allow me to configure from there. Anyways, it's working properly now at
1280x960.


Thanks much Andrei, Florian, Jack & Jochen for your help!!

You're right, I missed the '#'
