The default Nvidia driver that is being shipped with Solaris Express/OpenSolaris distro doesn't allow you to switch to 1024x768 resolution for Thinkpad T61. The issue here is most of the LCD projectors loves "1024x768" resolution. So with below workaround you can switch to 1024x768 (note this is experimental). Add the following lines to Nvidia device section in /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Option "UseEdidFreqs" "False" Option "HorizSync" "DFP-0: 40-70" Option "VertRefresh" "DFP-0: 58-62"
I have attached xorg.conf file for reference. Tested this on Thinkpad T61 which comes with Nvidia Quadro NVS 140M chipset. Special thanks to John.M.Martin for pointing this workaround.
