Just a thought... Have you tried different settings for the

I'm sorry, that does suck.
As a *last* resort, you may want to look into recent builds of XFree86.
The GeForce2GO is still a pretty new chipset and it will probably take
another minor rev or two of XFree86 for it to get better support. You
may want to see if you can get it working with XFree86 out of CVS.
ps - I just bought a ThinkPad (ATI M4) partially in order to avoid
nVidia graphics chipset problems. I'm sorry this advice is a
bit late for you but for others I *strongly* recommend that
you research XFree86 compatibility before buying any laptop!
