Impossible to change the resolution on wheezy to 1920x1080 I'm stuck and I'd down a bit as 1360x768.

At the beginning in nvidia-settings i only had the choice to 1920x1080, after adding: Option "ModeValidation" "AllowNonEdidModes" in my xorg.conf any resolutions are listed but black screen when i want to change ...

Same problem with xrandr when I change:

xrandr --output LVDS-0 --mode 1360x768 --rate 60 ==> black screen

I tested lot of solution but nothing happens, now i think the problem is edid and kms; I got the file edid.bin from nvidia-settings and try to add in my grub default.

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet drm_kms_helper.edid_firmware=edid/edid.bin"


GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet nomodeset nouveau.modeset=0"

But again no change, do you have a solution before I steal the magic wand of my niece ?

Attachement :

$ xrandr
