I think I know what your problem is... you have installed the drivers but you haven't updated your X config to use them. There's a program with the 8756 drivers called nvidia-xconfig which should update (after backing up your old file) your config.

Please take the time to read the README file that was bundled with your drivers, it should have been moved to /usr/share/doc/NVIDIA-GLX during the install.

I'v chage the config file of x org under the instruction of readme,but it still cann't display correct parameters.
When I changed the ModelName in "Device" section to nvidia,and then run the display setting in system setting menu, ModelName would changed to unknow device.
But NVIDIA X Server Settings in system tools menu can display correct display card name ,but it cann't set the resolution and refresh rate.

You have the wrong parameters for the monitor in your xorg.conf. These should be correct :
Quote:
Section "Monitor"
Identifier "Monitor0"
VendorName "Monitor Vendor"
ModelName "PHILIPS 107B"
DisplaySize 310 230
HorizSync 30.0 - 86.0
VertRefresh 50.0 - 160.0
Option "dpms"
EndSection
I think the issue is that you have a Philips Brilliance 107B3 and you chose a Philips 107B.

Thank you. Its resolution can be 1600*1200 now.
But its refresh rate can onle be 70hz when its resolution is1024*768.

Could you post your Xorg.0.log? (attach please)

You might also try with "1024x768_100"
