Have you tried sudo nvidia-xconfig?

Note: This isn't working for me on a fresh 11.04 install. I'm having the problem discussed at this Ubuntu Forum post It's not clear to me if you're having the same problem.

Hi Mike B and welcome to Ask Ubuntu! Your posting will likely get removed soon as it doesn't answer the question. It should probably have been a comment (but you probably don't have enough reputation yet to comment on questions). Read the FAQ to learn more about how this site works. –  htorque Sep 15 '11 at 9:34
