I have a Dell d830 with 1920x1200 screen and have been using Hardy for a
similar period of time, for a while it switched back to nv for some
reason. You could try regenerating the xorg.conf file with the
dkpg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg However, I may just have used one
of my backup xorg.conf files. If you like I can send you my copy since
it will probably work.
