Below is the output from my Xorg.0.

I have searched all over, and followed lots of dead ends and unanswered questions on this issue. I need to get this monitor recognised so I can use the native resolution of 1600x1200. The Nvidia driver in Windows has no problem with this. The monitor is an old Iiyama HM204DT A. Is there a way of configuring Xorg manually to get these working?
I have tried xrandr but this will not work. Output:-
sean@sean-P55-USB3:~$ xrandr Screen 0: minimum 8 x 8, current 1152 x 864, maximum 16384 x 16384 DVI-I-0 connected 1152x864+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 0mm x 0mm 1024x768 60.0 + 1360x768 60.0 59.8 1152x864 60.0* 800x600 72.2 60.3 56.2 680x384 119.9 119.6 640x480 59.9 512x384 120.0 400x300 144.4 320x240 120.1 DVI-I-1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) DVI-I-2 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) HDMI-0 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) DVI-I-3 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
Tried Nvidia Xorg.config:
sean@sean-P55-USB3:~$ sudo nvidia-xconfig [sudo] password for sean:
Using X configuration file: "/etc/X11/xorg.conf".
VALIDATION ERROR: Data incomplete in file /etc/X11/xorg.conf. Device section "Default Device" must have a Driver line.
Backed up file '/etc/X11/xorg.conf' as '/etc/X11/xorg.conf.nvidia-xconfig-original' Backed up file '/etc/X11/xorg.conf' as '/etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup' New X configuration file written to '/etc/X11/xorg.conf'
How do I insert a driver line?
This is a bit of a pain as I want to use my Vectorworks cad program in a WinXP Vbox at 1600x1200 but all virtual drives are restricted to the host screen resolution.
Do i need to manually create EIDI info in Xorg?
I am slightly confused about how Xorg and Nvidia relate
