    Let's see if your drivers are working, type glxinfo | grep -i direct in a terminal window. If it says yes, the drivers are working but you need to add the proper screen resolutions to /etc/X11/xorg.conf

    Do this
    sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.bak
    sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

    When prompted select nvidia as the driver (not nv or vesa)
