Then I would assume that you don't have the nvidia driver working. I 
have no idea why nvidia-settings displayed the one you want to use, but 
if it is working, glxgears should always run. So my advice is what I 
wrote in my first mail in this thread: Run the command

sudo nvidia-xconfig

in a terminal and then reboot. After that the nvidia driver should be 
active (check it with glxgears).
