[SOLVED] *ERROR* EDID checksum is invalid, remainder is 130

Whenever I connect my Lenovo T61 laptop (CrunchBang Statler Openbox) to a Samsung 943NWX external monitor, I get the following message before the login screen:

[drm:drm_edid_block_valid] *ERROR* EDID checksum is invalid, remainder is 130
[drm:drm_edid_block_valid] *ERROR* EDID checksum is invalid, remainder is 130
[drm:drm_edid_block_valid] *ERROR* EDID checksum is invalid, remainder is 130
[drm:drm_edid_block_valid] *ERROR* EDID checksum is invalid, remainder is 130

It does not show on my laptop screen if/when I disconnect from the external monitor. Connected, I have an extended display setting which runs without any issue.

I have tried Googling for a solution to remove the error message without success.

My machine has an Intel GMA X3100 graphics chip.

Has anyone come across this problem and found a way to remove the error message?

@machinebacon: Thank you. You're right - I don't have an xorg.conf file (not one I can find anyway). I tried a custom xorg.conf two days ago but that created more problems... but I might try again. tongue

If I find a solution, I'll post it here.

sudo Xorg :1 -configure
sudo cp /root/xorg.conf.new /etc/X11/xorg.conf
sudo gedit  /etc/X11/xorg.conf
