Default Debian Nvidia Geforce440mx Drivers Problem

i were with vesa driver and everything were fine except 60 hz (my eyes float away)
then i installed (for many reasons) the nvidia driver
I entered KDE and everything was big and ugly like in 640 or 800.
My monitor is on 1024 but xvid tune shows 800x600 what is going on how to fix it?if i switch to vesa it is ok but how to fix it with the nvidia driver???

Martin: I also began using my system with the VESA driver, and eventually switched to the nvidia driver. I think your problem may be what modes your X server is detecting when it starts up and then what modes it thinks that your monitor is capable of. When you use the VESA driver, the X server detects that suboptimal 60Hz mode which it detects as being within your monitor's capabilities. I'm just guessing, but I think the modes that the nvidia driver is providing do not include whatever mode that VESA driver provided. Could you try the nvidia driver again and then attach your XFree86 log? Mine is located in /var/log/XFree86.0.log. It gives a lot of information about what modes are detected.
Also, what kind of monitor are you using? Do you have the specifications of it?

KFC 15 inches
interesting is that - when i start Xvidtune it shows at the top
shows HDisplay : 800 VDisplay:600 which is interesting because the monitor is on 1024 for sure ....

i think the graphical environment (in this case KDE) sets the sizes of the fonts and everything like 800x600 but the monitor is on 1024 cuz i have set this in the XF86Config-4 but can you help me anyway ??? im sick of fixing Linux problems alone .so far 2 weeks bugging my head on setting sound,setting the Nvidia drivers,setting XFree and many many...

Martin: Let's start with the logfile that XFree86 generates. On my Debian system, the logfile is located in /var/log/XFree86.0.log . If you could attach it, or just paste it's contents into your reply, i'll see if i can see anything that i could suggest fixing.

Martin: First: I think that problem might be with the vertical refresh frequency that you defined in the "My Monitor" defnition in your XF86Config file. Second: I am not sure which KFC 15" monitor you own, but I think that the vertical refresh frequency should be 50-100, not 85-100 as you current definition seems to be. Could you try adjusting your XF86Config monitor definition. Also, could you attach that XF86Config file, because there might be something else that I could suggest.
