What broke my xorg.conf? nvidia-settings. Do you believe nvsvc32.exe
breaks Windows settings? Possible.

You know what? The first message I posted on NVIDIA forums was a rant.
It's not that I'm just fed up with them giving no support at all. So,
I thank you very much for your advice.

It doesn't. I won't try the billion combinations possible between your
file and mine. If you know how to get a clean set up -- not something
that looks like a quick hack, like I was telling Ed -- from the xorg
file nvidia-settings has created, please tell me. Otherwise, I've been
through enough: Why don't you try this and that.
At minimum wage, I've spent more then 10 times the price of the card
to try to get it working. This is not normal. If you have a precise
solution, I'll try it. But there are too many people on the net losing
way too much time trying to get NVIDIA cards working, either with
Linux or Windows. When you offer a product, you must provide support.
NVIDIA's attitude is unacceptable.
