Works in Win 7 Works in Linux (various distros) with open source drivers Doesn't work in Linux (various distros) with Nvidia drivers Black screen on boot, have to drop into a terminal. X isn't starting. Monitor also has problematic EDID. I want to use Nvidia drivers. Exactly same as outlined here: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=2038997 More information here: http://www.codesim.com/tips/index.php?t=3 http://blog.gatoatigrado.com/2012/08/configuring-crossover-27q-led-p-on.html http://learnitwithme.com/wordpress/?p=342 <----- DEAD, but everyone is referencing it http://www.overclock.net/t/1215866/...ian-qh270-and-catleap-q270/4760#post_21844392 http://blog.patshead.com/2013/09/linux-and-the-qnix-qx2710-monitor.html https://isotope11.com/blog/getting-...-with-the-nvidia-driver-in-your-xorg-dot-conf Solutions tried: Every xorg config file I could find that said it was a solution. Creating a custom EDID file and having xorg point to it. Result No change; X doesn't start, have to drop into terminal. I've been trying to fix this for days, and I'm tearing my hair out. Anyone help? Thanks!
