Take a look at what the log actually said.

And try to find that row in the XFconfig.

"(WW) NVIDIA(0): Option "SencondMonitorRefresh" is not used"

" Option "SencondMonitorRefresh" "50""

The problem is that you have misspelled "second" in the config.

Change that to start with.

Tv flickering

I'm only getting an image on my tv right now, hopefully will be on the crt soon. When I get it onto the tv it is flicker and is useless. I can at least shutdown and restart x. THe crt just turns off. How can I stop the tv from flickering? The error I'm getting in log is hsync out of range. If you know how to solve the problem then you know what I'm talking about.
