NVidia settings not applied


Gentlemen:

I have a computer with Fedora Core 6 updated and the latest nVidia kmod. My problem is, my monitor is VERY dark, even at max brightness and contrast.
In Windows, I just had to use the nVidia Control Panel and increase manually the contrast, brightness and gamma of the card to get an acceptable picture. I can do the same in Fedora with the nVidia Display Settings applet and it works.
The thing is, after saving the changes, if I reboot the machine, the screen looks dark again and I can barely see anything; I log in and open the nVidia Display Settings applet and THEN the applet applies the changes in brightness, etc.
How can I configure the X server or whatever is needed in order to apply the settings automatically instead?

Thanks in advance.

Sherman

P.D.: Another thing: How can I apply the same settings to the Fedora Graphical boot screen?

P.D. 2: My computer specs:

- AMD Sempron 2600+
- 1 GB RAM
- 2 HD, 40 & 200 GB, both IDE
- 1 DVD reader
- 1 DVD burner
- nVidia GeForce 6200 AGP

doesn't your monitor have buttons on the front that change those settings (brightness, contrast, color, zoom, horizontal & Vertical)?

Even with those settings, the monitor is DARK (like in almost black). I know the solution is to buy a new monitor, but I'd like to have this as a temporary solution).

Does your monitor (by chance) by any acpi settings --- maybe try booting with noacpi nolacpi, I know it is more so for laptops, but eh worth a try
