Default Re: Ubuntu - Nvidia driver with dvi monitor distorted

I had the exact same issue. (the screenshot posted at the start of the thread).

You guys also helped me resolve my issue. Here's my xorg.conf to help with anyone else that might run into this issue.

Using T85-D monitor and an nvidia n200 video card via DVI.

Code:
Section "ServerLayout"
    Identifier     "Layout0"
    Screen      0  "Screen0" 0 0
    InputDevice    "Keyboard0" "CoreKeyboard"
    InputDevice    "Mouse0" "CorePointer"
EndSection

Section "Files"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"

    # generated from default
    Identifier     "Mouse0"
    Driver         "mouse"
    Option         "Protocol" "auto"
    Option         "Device" "/dev/psaux"
    Option         "Emulate3Buttons" "no"
    Option         "ZAxisMapping" "4 5"
EndSection

Section "InputDevice"

    # generated from default
    Identifier     "Keyboard0"
    Driver         "kbd"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
    Identifier     "Monitor0"
    VendorName     "Unknown"
    ModelName      "Unknown"
    HorizSync      61 - 64
 #   HorizSync       28.0 - 33.0
 #   VertRefresh     43.0 - 72.0
    VertRefresh    60
    Option         "DPMS"
EndSection

Section "Device"
    Identifier     "Device0"
    Driver         "nvidia"
    VendorName     "NVIDIA Corporation"
    Option "UseEvents" "True"
    Option "UseEDID" "False"
    Option "ExactModeTimingsDVI" "true"
    Option "ModeValidation" "NoDFPNativeResolutionCheck"
EndSection


Section "Screen"
    Identifier     "Screen0"
    Device         "Device0"
    Monitor        "Monitor0"
    DefaultDepth    24
    SubSection "Display"
    Depth 16
    Modes "1280x1024" "1152x864" "1024x768" "800x600"
    EndSubSection
    SubSection "Display"
    Depth 32
    Modes "1280x1024" "1152x864" "1024x768" "800x600"
    EndSubSection
    SubSection     "Display"
        Depth       24
    Modes "1280x1024" "1152x864" "1024x768" "800x600"
    EndSubSection
EndSection
Also, my machine boots up with that error. When KDM/XDM starts, and xorg kicks in, the screen clears itself up.
