Modify xorg.conf file for Nvidia card


hi, i have nvidia gt420m graphic and i installed proper version of drivers on ubuntu 11.04

When i created nvidia-xconfig, it created a xorg.conf file but it doesn't work.

i already tried init1 as well as init3

here's xorg.conf file
Code:
# nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig
# nvidia-xconfig:  version 304.37  (buildmeister@swio-display-x86-rhel47-07.nvidia.com)  Wed Aug  8 21:03:22 PDT 2012

We need to see the full /var/log/Xorg.0.log file.
