Unhappy Ubuntu - Nvidia driver with dvi monitor distorted

I just installed Ubuntu Feisty fawn. Default VESA nv driver worked fine at installation. I've done apt-get update and apt-get upgrade. I installed my nVidia driver using envy 0.9.7-0ubuntu8. It appears that the nVidia driver is running now, but looks like there is a communication error with the DVI monitor. The monitor displays a double image of the desktop with some lines on the right side, see attached picture. When I run nvidia-settings it shows the resolution as 800x600, but from xorg.conf I would expect it to be 1024x768. nvidia-settings will not let me select a different resolution. I tried running 'dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg' to set the possible resolutions, but no change.

System:
Pentium 4
nVidia GeForce4 Ti 4200
DVI monitor (IBM T85D)
