Detailed INF fix thread explanation
Thanks to Ministeve, our testing guru, we have found a solution to the Black Bar issue.
BlackBar PHP page to fixer the issue...
EDID Information is found in the registry at:
When running older drivers that properly obtain an EDID the following proper tags are obtained:
TOS5082 - 1024x768
TOS5086 - 1400x1050
TOS5088 - 1600x1200
When running newer drivers that do not properly obtain an EDID (black bar) the following tags are obtained: NVDXXXX. In some cases users may obtain an actual TOSXXXX key with faulty information. This will be investigated furthur if a lot of people have this case.
This issue is due to the fact the BIOS contains improper display information and the more recent display drivers are not correctly obtaining the displays EDID. We have chosen to take the easy driver route on this matter by not having people update the BIOS.
4.17.00.41.C5 <- Bad(contains black bar issues)
4.17.00.41.C7 <- Bad (contains black bar issues)
4.17.00.59.F9 <- Good BIOS
If you have a BIOS not listed. Please extract and post it for further study.
For BIOS utilities see the BIOS Utilities post.
