Default Gforce FX5200 in Ubuntu Linux Refresh Rate

I am running a Gforce FX5200 in Ubuntu Linux and I am having major problems. I am trying to setup a 1280x960 screen with a refresh rate of 70hz. I made a modeline for this resolution and refresh rate, but it is not being accepted. Below I have listed my xorg.conf file:

Is there any thing I need to change or add to get the modeline value I generated to work. Any help would be greatfully appreciated.

Yes I want Verticle at 70 hz and If nvidia settings included a way to select the options I wanted I would use it.

The Horiz and vert refresh rates are correct as stated in the monitors manual. Still not able to change from 60hz to anything usable like 75 or 85 hz.

Please start X with the following command:
startx -- -logverbose 6

and then generate and attach an nvidia-bug-report.log.

Thanks,
Lonni

Tried running the startx command you listed and I got a error and had to reboot the system to get back in to Linux.

Tried loading nvidia-settings program and in Ubuntu this removes the nvidia-glx module. Don't know how to keep both running.

Right, you can't start X a 2nd time, if its already running. X needs to be stopped before you can start it again.
