What I have found is to use the nVidia supplied utility
('NVIDIA X Server Settings" in your menu) to make video config changes 
and detections, and allow it to save them to /etc/X11/xorg.conf. That 
option is on the second tab "X-Server Display Configuration) in the 
lower right hand corner. Use it, it's your friend.

If you make a selection and don't save it, all is lost. You do need to 
logout and log back in again for any changes to take effect. But, the 
desktop supplied video tools do ~nothing~ unless, you're running some 
1990's vanilla video card.

That which controls the nVidia driver, makes the rules. Ric
