A service where you can upload large textfiles and they give you a link you can post on forums. Usually the Xorg.0.log is so large that it would take several posts here to post it, this way it is easier. Since you are using Ubuntu may be you use Ubuntu's service: http://paste.ubuntu.com/

After horsing around for an hour or so, I finally managed to get the newest Nvidia drivers installed, but not sure how... ??
Then, after not being able to change the resolution and back to square one I did what fogpipe suggested and that was it. I found my monitors refresh rates, plugged them into Xorg and now I can go really high with my resolution But......... I still have some wierd flickering and when I log out or reboot the resolution reverts back to 1024x768.
Any idea how to stop that?

then i would guess that that has something to do with it

the nvidia.run and a very nice text based ascii gui

step 1
copy the .run to /
run
Code:
su -
cd /
chmod +x *.run
2)
boot into TEXT only mode
for Ubuntu i think it is level1 ( on red hat it is run level3 )
NOT in single user mode ( the .run installer will through a fit )

login as root into the text only boot

3)

run
Code:
cd /
sh *.run
fallow the on screen instructions
( you should say "yes" to everything)

4)
reboot

Installing newer drivers to try to fix resolution problems might seem to be a good idea, but in this case its not really.

Its only a good idea when you have _very_ new hardware, or you _know_ that there is an isue with EDID and whatever driver version you are currently using. With hardwae as old as the G210, over 2 years old now, any initial driver release problems are totally fixed.

It rather use one of the PPA, like xorg-edgers, with a *buntu over doing a manual install of the nVidia drivers.

As for how to get 1920x1080, without flickering and no reverting back to 1024x768.....post your xorg.conf file. Please post it in 'code' tags, it keeps the forum neater (when you hit 'advanced post', the # symbol above the posting area makes 'code' tags).
