Default 2nd Monitor on GeForce FX 5700 not detected in Mint 7 (173.14.16 driver) [SOLVED]

Hi - I recently installed Mint 7 on a PC with a NVIDIA GeForce FX 5700 Ultra, with 2 Dell E171FP monitors. Monitor 0 is attached to the VGA output on the 5700 and Monitor 1 is attached to the DVI output via a DVI/VGA adapter. Monitor 0 is detected properly, but Monitor 1 is not detected properly and only shows as a CRT, with max resolution of 640x480. I have installed and am using the 173.14.16 NVIDIA LINUX drivers and tried running nvidia-settings, but driver still not detecting the second monitor.

Any help is appreciated - John
