I did not have time to do allot of research cause I had to go to work but I did run across something that might help...
The xorg.config file may need to be edited... Try the instructions below.
Type the following in a new console window:
sudo touch 10-monitor.conf
sudo gedit 10-monitor.conf
Paste the following into the file, changing variables where indicated by the comments
Driver "nvidia" #Choose the driver used for this monitor
Identifier "Screen0" #Collapse Monitor and Device section to Screen section
DefaultDepth 24 #Choose the depth (16||24)
Modes "1680x1050" #Choose the resolution
Save the file.
Press CTRL + ALT + FI to enter terminal mode and type the following:
sudo stop lightdm
sudo start lightdm
Log in and notice that the cursor does not flicker any more. You may have to unplug your mouse and plug in back in to get the cursor to work. If you do not get back to the graphical mode after starting the display manager, press CTRL + ALT + F7
