I followed the solution suggested here but making those changes in my xorg.conf file didn't help. When I restart my computer, I still have a resolution of 1280x1024 even though my native resolution is 1440x900. I have re-installed drivers a couple of times, but still nothing.

Nvidia drivers version:
Operating System: Linux-x86
NVIDIA Driver Version: 304.64
Server Version Number: 11.0
Screens: 1

Ubuntu 12.10 (32bit)
