Default Re: X server does start but with wrong refresh rate

I am also having a problem with my nvidia GeForce Mx440 video card, at command:

# nvidia-settings

Gives the following error:
ERROR: Cannot open display 'localhost.localdomain:0.0'.

ERROR: Unable to assign attribute DigitalVibrance specified on line 19 of
configuration file '/home/tajin/.nvidia-settings-rc' (no Display

ERROR: Unable to assign attribute SyncToVBlank specified on line 20 of
configuration file '/home/tajin/.nvidia-settings-rc' (no Display
error continues for no display connection.

My output for xorg.conf file is:
# generated from data in "/etc/sysconfig/keyboard"

I don't know how to change the display name from-- localhost.localdomain to Screen 0 or Display? what's is indicated in the xorg.conf file, can you give some advice?
