Upon trying to get my ubuntu 13.10 installation working on my new computer, I encountered an issue with the proprietary nvidia drivers and my display. Apparently, the two don't agree with each other (has to do with garbage EDID returned by the monitor).
I was very excited when I found the following blog post, which exactly described the problem I have been having and how to fix it:
I followed his directions exactly on how to configure my xorg.conf file, and the screen shows up. However, the right side of the screen is very dark and flickers--it seems as though the values are quite correct.
I have been struggling on how to proceed fixing this problem. It seem I need something different for the following line in my xorg.conf:
Modeline "2560x1440" 312.25 2560 2752 3024 3488 1440 1443 1448 1493 -hsync +vsync
Any assistance I could get I would be very grateful for.
Here's a pastebin of my current xorg.conf for reference: http://pastebin.com/7AMsDcAy
