Default (EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.

I'm having trouble getting the NV Driver for X working with Mythbuntu and Ubuntu 8.10. I've tried troubleshooting this with people online to no avail. Tried adding mode lines to no avail. I haven't had this much trouble with X in 8+ years. The most relevant part of the X log file seems to be:

(II) NVIDIA(0): Creating default Display subsection in Screen section
"Default Screen" for depth/fbbpp 24/32

Summary of hardware:
VCard: VGA ASUS EN8400GS SILENT/HTP/512M R
MBoard: MB GIGABYTE GA-MA770-DS3P AM2+ RTL
Monitor: Samsung Syncmaster 225BW(DVI)
also tried an old MIcron 17" CRT.
Video capture card: Hauppauge HVR-1600

The motherboard has some sort of onboard graphics that auto-disables when another video card is detected, although there are cases on google where this doesn't seem to function as far as i can tell from lspci it's working fine.

The CRT has had a NVidia card running X work fine on it, just wanted to make sure there wasn't some issue with the monitor.
