Screen Resolution problem using Nvidia drivers with KDE


I installed the nvidia 3D accelerated drivers on my Mdk 10.1 system, and they seem to be working ok. However, since installing them, I've noticed that the font sizes and screen resolution seems to be really funky on KDE now. All of the text is huge ( a lot bigger than I normally keep it), but the Fonts and Screen configuration menus show no sign of being altered. Gnome hasn't been affected by any of this. It displays exactly like it used to. I'm guessing this has something to do with the nvidia drivers and the ways Gnome and KDE handle screen display. But how can I correct the problem to get KDE back the way it was? Right now, I've switched to Gnome because KDE is near unusuable, but I can't figure out how to change it back (or even what exactly was changed). Any help would be appreciated. Thanks.

Has anyone else even encountered this problem?

(btw, my monitor is a 1600x1200 laptop LCD, if that helps any)

I don't know if anyone else has come across this problem, and I'm still not 100% sure what the root of the problem is (though I have my guesses), but maybe if anyone else comes to this topic with the same problem, this website might have some answers:

I haven't tried any of the suggestions yet, though, so I can't make any guarantees.
