Resolution has to be reset on every boot
 
I am running Mint 9 gnome (Ubuntu 10.04 based) on a Dell Latitude E6510. Graphics is nVidia NVS 3100M X.Org 1.7.6 The screen is a FHD 1920x1080. I have installed the nvidia driver 195.36.24 with the hardware drivers installation utility Mint/Ubuntu provides. Every time it boots to 1280x1024. I can easily reset the resolution to 1920x1080 with Nvidia X Server Settings, but this gets quite old. I have saved the xorg.conf file, but to no avail. I tried editing the xorg.conf file like this:

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Monitor0"
VendorName "Unknown"
ModelName "LGD"
HorizSync 44.5 - 66.7
VertRefresh 40.0 - 60.0
Option "DPMS"
EndSection

Section "Device"
Identifier "Device0"
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "NVIDIA Corporation"
BoardName "NVS 3100M"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
Identifier "Screen0"
Device "Device0"
Monitor "Monitor0"
DefaultDepth 24
Option "TwinView" "0"
Option "metamodes" "DFP: 1920x1080 +0+0"
SubSection "Display"
Depth 24
Modes "1920x1080"
EndSubSection
EndSection

But still got 1280X1024.

Interestingly, if I connect an external monitor and set up twin view and save, it will reboot to the proper resolutions if the external monitor is connected. If not then 1280x1024.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance.

Update: I just noticed that my xorg.conf file changes Monitor0 to my external monitor instead of the laptop screen when I am using it.

Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Monitor0"
VendorName "Unknown"
ModelName "ViewSonic VX2233wm-1"
HorizSync 24.0 - 82.0

Option "DPMS"
EndSection

Section "Device"
Identifier "Device0"
Driver "nvidia"
VendorName "NVIDIA Corporation"
BoardName "NVS 3100M"
EndSection

Section "Screen"
