Small Annoyance (Refresh resets to 60hz)
I have used nvidia-settings to change my monitor refresh rate to 70hz and applied the change. I have also clicked the Save to Xconfig file button and accepted the change. My problem is when I reboot my nvidia fx5200 it reverts to 60hz refresh rate. I then have to go in and manually change it to 70hz. Is there a way to keep this setting after a restart or do I have to change it manually each time I reboot. It's more of an annoyance than a real problem and if I have to do it manually I will.

Please generate and attach an nvidia-bug-report.log.

I stopped the xterm and tried restarting it with the command "startx -- -logverbose 6" and got a error message xterm locked at which point my system locked up. I reset the computer doing a poweroff / poweron and got the error xterm locked both tries. I have no idea why I am getting this error. If I just enter "startx" the xterm loads with no error. Still reverting to 60hz upon reboot. Must manually go into nvidia-settings to switch the refresh rate to 70hz. STRANGE!!!!!!!

Did you start the nvidia-settings tool with sudo or as root? Otherwise it cannot save the X config.

No I did not. I started it under my normal user account. Never even thought of the file xorg.conf having to be saved as root. I'll give that a try and see what happens.
