Hi everyone!

I am trying to convince my girlfriend to use freebsd as a desktop in her (not so) old toshiba S2450-201 laptop. I use it in my toshiba A200 laptop and it works fine. I just install it in her laptop with a 30GB disk I have... Installation was fine. This laptop as a "nvidia geforce4 420 go" graphics board with 32MB. The setup of xorg.conf was made through "Xorg -configure". I tested with startx and it worked. Then I installed the nvidia driver. I had to try all 3 driver versions and the only one that worked was "nvidia-driver-71xx". Then reboot and then I run "nvidia-xconfig". And startx... great, it worked! The nvidia logo appeared in the screen during xorg startup. Fine! Then I installed nvidia-settings. But when I try to run it it complains that it appear that I not using the NVIDIA X driver. But I am!! It also said that NV-CONTROL extension version 1.6 is too old and the minimum required version is 1.11.
In my xorg.conf I have 1024x768 resolution, but xorg is with 800x600.
I also dont have the VSR and HSR for this laptop. I just cant find it anywhere...


Can someone help me with this please?

Here is my xorg.conf:
