    No suggestions since you have already tried the nvidia driver.

    What is the chipset of your video card? I am experiencing a somewhat
    similar problem with a GeForce FX5600 card. It has DVI and CRT out.
    The Xorg nv driver displays fine on the DVI o/p (1280x1024) but the CRT
    o/p looks mangled and the res. looks like 640x480. Did not have this
    problem in 9.2 (XFree86) but manifested in 9.3 (Xorg) (also in 10.0

    I downloaded the nvidia driver with YOU - it corrected the display
    problem on the CRT port.
