I would check Nvidia sites to be sure, but it is probably a less likely cause of your problems than (say) your card/screen not being recognised correctly.
Do you have an /etc/X11/xorg.conf file?
If you don't, then you might be able to cajole the system into doing the right thing by installing one which defines the screen and display modes that you want.
Have a bit of a snoop about, there are probably sample files available for your screen somewhere.
