problem with nvidia card & 15.6" display

Forums: 

Hi, Please check out the following thread to get full details of my issue:
http://www.linux.com/community/forums?func=view&catid=8&id=4906

Basically, I think my graphics card and driver are working correctly but they're having trouble working with my display. It's a 15.6" HD LED on an ASUS K501N and when I enable the drivers for my graphics card my display is divided into 6 sections. The nVidia control panel doesn't seem to be able to correctly detect the monitor or accept the resolution if I manually input the figures.
This means I've got no 3-D capabilities and MS Wombles looks better at the moment
Anyone got any idea how I can resolve this issue - I'm new to linux and want to banish MS for good.
