I'm using nvidia drivers on current PC,

I installed the drivers, "apt-get install nvidia-glx nvidia-settings"
and then ran the following:
sudo nvidia-glx-config enable

then had to tweak the xorg.conf for the monitor settings and resolution for
my monitor,

did you run the nvidia-glx-config enable
