Can you please attach a copy of your /var/log/XFree86.0.log file?

Code:
(II) NVIDIA(0): Not using mode "1280X1024" (no mode of this name)
(**) NVIDIA(0): Validated modes for display device CRT-1:
(**) NVIDIA(0):      Default mode "1024x768": 94.5 MHz, 68.7 kHz, 85.0 Hz
(WW) NVIDIA(0): Unable to find mode "1280X1024" for display device 1 in
(WW) NVIDIA(0):      MetaMode "1280x1024,1280X1024"
(II) NVIDIA(0): Virtual screen size determined to be 2048 x 1024
This is your problem - change "1280X1024" to "1280x1024" (X vs. x) and see if it works.

Thanks for the help!

did not know that the X or x were case sensitive. But all is working now...

I just have 1 other question...

How do I limit a game that changes into a "direct X" full screen game like in windows. too just use 1 screen. It is an open GL full screen game called Neverwinter nights. I hope I explained it alright...

or so it is 2048X1024 not 4096X1024. and can fit into monitor0 in windowed mode.

Again thanks for any help that you can give.
