Issue with Quadro4 700GoGL

Guest Numsgil

Recommended Posts

I have an Inspiron 8100 with a new Quadro4 700GoGL. The default drivers that XP uses works fine, if a bit slowly. If I try to update the driver with the ones found on this site, the display doesn't get centered properly and the bottom half of my display isn't visible.

I"m sorry if I'm not making much sense, I'm finding it hard to explain. I basically have to set my resolution at 1024 x 768 for the display to fit on the physical LCD screen.

I'm wondering if anyone's run across this problem?

We need more information. What screen do you have? Best to run the NERD utility available on this webpage.

Exactly what screen do you have? (could atleast tell us the resolution)

I assume it is one of the problematic samsung screens (as usual)

If you get your INF from here you can get a fix, the Dell SEC3255 option.


If you have a certain screen you might have to use an older driver, or one of the latest 9x series.

Salzrat knows more about the harder to fix problems so I will let him take it from here.

The NERD utility is pretty neat. This is a fairly new laptop so I wasn't sure of alot of the specs.

NVIDIA GPU : NVIDIA Quadro4 700 GoGL (Dell Mobile)


LCD Resolution : 1600 x 1200 pixels (native)

LCD display size : " 3200 x 2400mm (approximately 15.7")"

internal LCD name : NVD0400

SYSTEM BIOS version : DELL - 27d30303\0Phoenix ROM BIOS PLUS Version 1.10 A15\0\0

SYSTEM BIOS date : 03/03/03 (pls. convert that to a readable format: DD-MMM-YYYY)

I'll check the fix you posted Bill.

Nothing I've found on this forum seems to fix the problem. I did find an old DELL driver for the Quadro4 700 that fixes the problem, but it is something like 6X series.

I've included the INF from the older DELL driver, maybe someone more intelligent than me can figure out exactly what the fix I need for newer drivers is?

Run NERD from the working older driver set.

It should at that point properly recognize your LCD screen. (as a samsung display, not NVD0400)

I think as I mentioned earlier some of the drivers after the 84 series had the issue fixed. (Nvidia engineers finaly looked into the problem and fixed it)

It doesn't sound like a Samsung screen. Drivers betwenn 65.91 and 84-ish wouldn't work at all with the Samsung...

I don't think it's a samsung either. The fix for samsung didn't work, and neither does any of the 9X series drivers.

I believe it's saying my monitor's code is IBM2193, if that sounds right. Are there such things as drivers for the laptop's screen, and would I need to download one?

Here's the NERD output.post-19559-1201574143_thumb.jpg

No, the screen driver is part of the display driver and/or the system bios (they have to interact somehow).

With the 440Go card, an EDID fix usually helps, but with the Quadro 700Gogl the LCD circuitry is off-chip and works somehow differently. Which means if you don't find a driver that works, you are probably out of luck.

The problem seems very similar to the fix for 1400x1050 screens, I just need to get the right EDID. More than likely this laptop has been through hell and back and has a non-standard LCD or something; I bought it on ebay. It's a IBM-ITSX95 (2193), which I can't find alot of references to. Besides this hickup it's a nice screen though.

Anyway, this is my EDID:


0x 00 01 02 03 04 05 06 07 08 09 0A 0B 0C 0D 0E 0F


00 | 00 FF FF FF FF FF FF 00 24 4D 93 21 01 01 01 01

10 | 00 00 01 03 80 1E 17 78 2A CD 75 91 55 4F 8B 26

20 | 21 50 54 00 00 00 90 40 01 01 01 01 01 01 01 01

30 | 01 01 01 01 01 01 30 2A 78 20 51 1A 10 40 30 70

40 | 13 00 31 E4 10 00 00 1E 00 00 00 FE 00 0A 20 20

50 | 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 00 00 00 FC 00 49

60 | 42 4D 2D 49 54 53 58 39 35 0A 20 20 00 00 00 FE

70 | 00 0A 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 00 03

I just need to know how to convert that into an override edid for the inf file. I'm thinking it should work (crosses fingers).

get an inf with the Samsung SEC3255 fix from enhancer, and replace the sequence starting from "00,ff,ff, ..." with the sequence you posted.

I have no idea whether that could work, but it's worth a try.

Again, I believe EDID overrides don't work for the Quadro 700GoGl - at least they didn't for the Samsung. The driver had to be changed to make the Samsung work again.
