Screen resolution problems with Nvidia drivers in Ubuntu (7.04)

Hi folks, this post is in English cause I hope it's helpful.

So when I installed Ubuntu I enabled the Nvidia drivers in the Restricted Drivers Management. After I restarted X the drivers worked fine, but the screen resolution was very low and most of the resolution options were gone (max was 800x600).
I did quite a search, tried quite a few things and after few days I managed to restore my resolution with the new driver.

Here are the things I added to my xorg.conf

In the "Device" Section :

Option "UseEDIDFreqs" "FALSE"
Option "UseEDIDDpi" "FALSE"
Option "ModeValidation" "NoEdidModes"

In the "Monitor" Section :

HorizSync 31-60
VertRefresh 50-80
# 1024x768 @ 75.00 Hz (GTF) hsync: 60.15 kHz; pclk: 81.80 MHz
Modeline "1024x768_75.37" 81.80 1024 1080 1192 1360 768 769 772 802 -HSync +Vsync

In the "Screen" Section :

Option "NoVirtualSizeCheck"
Option "UseEDIDFreqs" "FALSE"
Option "UseEDIDDpi" "FALSE"
Option "ModeValidation" "NoEdidModes"

I repeat - these are not the whole sections, these are just the things I added to them.
And don't forget to save a backup of your xorg.conf!
