Re: monitor detection maybe not working - another try

I'm running sid.
My monitor stopped going to the correct resolution some upgrades ago.
I have an
nVidia Corporation NV18 [GeForce4 MX - nForce GPU] (rev a3).
I'm researching many things from this list etc. to attempt to solve
the problem but one concern is that I don't think my monitor is being
detected correctly. ddcprobe seems to give the correct info but I
don't think this info is being used.
I may not have been very clear. I don't think I'm having any trouble
with nVidia drivers. I believe I could write an xorg.conf file that
would work for my monitor. It's my impression the new way for most
hardware is auto-detection. udev, etc. The current read-edid code is
not working for my monitor. ddcprobe shows that it is possible to read
the info about my monitor. (ViewSonic VA703b) (see the ddcprobe output
in another post in this thread.
I believe that if my monitor info were being read correctly I would have
no problem with monitor resolution. Is is possible that I just need to
file a bug against read-edid?
Thanks for all the help so far.
