You might wanna install nvidia-settings and use that to configure it.

Try saving to X configuration file and restart. Back up /etc/X11/xorg.conf before you do.

I'm assuming you're running compiz. What happens when you use metacity instead of compiz?

Okay. This might fix your problem:
Backup your xorg.conf first though.
sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.backupOpen xorg.conf for editting.
sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.confAdd the following line into the Section "Screen" part.
Option "AddARGBGLXVisuals" "true"Restart X.
Ctrl+Alt+BackspaceHope that fixes it.
Edit: In case you can't start X anymore or the resolution becomes very low, go to the commandline (Ctrl+Alt+1) and login. Then type:
sudo cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup /etc/X11/xorg.conf
to restore the "working" config file.
