Default eVga 8800GTS and Kubuntu Feisty

Well, I've posted here before, and the fix worked! For a little while at least. Then one time when I rebooted, it stopped, and I got the same black screen. I tried removing everything, and going back to the instructions in the other thread, but it didn't work. Here is the issue:
I'm on Kubuntu 7.04. I have an eVga 8800GTS and I'm trying to use 2 Dell 2007WFP monitors. I used adept to add nvidia-glx (version 1.0.9755...see below), and then I ran nvidia-xconfig --twinview (also tried without the twinview), and restarted. However, I only get a black screen. If I press alt+f1, I get a text login (that you can't see...however, if I type my username and press enter, I can see the password prompt). I had to log in, and set the driver back to vesa.
aaroncampbell@aaron-linux:~$ aptitude show nvidia-glx | grep -i version
Version: 1.0.9755+
Here is my current xorg.conf:

I'm attaching the output of after attempting "startx -- -logverbose 6"

Let me know if anything else might help. I'm currently using the drivers from the kubuntu feisty repos, but I tried downloading and installing from nvidia...but it made no difference.
