I haven't seen that error before, but if you don't get any other suggestions, you can try installing the latest driver manually (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=4978329#post4978329).

I think you just need to press the auto-adjust button on your display?

Gah you installed manually... why when you want to fix a problem, do you do something completely different which isn't supported.

im sorry, What? ive pressed the auto config on my montior, but thats not the issue anymore i now have full screen coverage its at the wrong res and this X nvidia thing seems to have screwed with it so now i cant change my res to 1920x1200, and if i try to change it under the X config, it only lets me go to like 600x400

If I were you, I would remove the drivers you installed manually, install the ones using ubuntu's built in mechanism and press the auto-adjust button.

Im sorry to seem impaitcent but this is kinda urgent

Do you have the nvidia-settings package installed? That's where you would change things like an incorrect monitor resolution and so forth.

I don't know why someone would have recommended you install the driver manually. That makes no sense at all.
