I tried editing my xorg.conf but to no avail. If anyone has the same chipset and has been able to get this to work please chime in.. This is the only forum I belong to, so thats why I didnt post in the ubuntu forums.

Thank you for that.. It almost did it, but im not hardcore enough yet to start messing around with xorg.. I will take it to an appropriate forum. But you did get me going in the right direction.

From what i read,xorg is your only option, theres some other thing starting with an r i forgot the name but people complain about that method, one complaint being that the settings revert back when the computer is restarted.

But you should be able to write a start up script to and they should revert back everytime.. maybe add a few more seconds to boot.
