Last I recall looking, the second command Eric gave you edited xorg.conf, but I believe there have been significant changes to X since then which may have altered the behavior of the command. You may have to run it with X not running in order to get it to work correctly. I believe a refresh rate of 60Hz is most universally supported by monitors, or if you know that your monitor supports something different you can try that.

If you don't succeed with the second command given by Eric (copied below, for convenience), try taking out the -phigh option ( sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg ). This will run through a variety of options and let you manually select everything. I believe you may also be able to add 'Driver "nv"' to the device section of xorg.conf. Line shown in place below.

Does sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg give you any errors?
