Default Problem with Lenovo w520 driving external displays. Ubuntu 11.04

I've got a Lenovo w520 attached to a think pad mini doc plus series 3. Ubuntu 11.04 is installed. Latest Nvidia drivers are installed. Optimus is turned off.

I want to get it to drive a Dell 30 inch digital monitor with 2560x1600. At best, the NVidia X Server Settings comes up with Dell having a 1280x800 resolution in twin display. I've tried many different settings of Xorg.conf and several different bios settings. This seems to be a bug/problem with the NVidia drivers.

Can anyone help with this?
