I've tried switching the run-level and complete restart to restart X. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
So it is working until you restart? If I am understanding this correctly here is what you need to do.
Log in as root and perform the same changes in the Nvidia GUI and save to X Configuration file.
If you don't want to log into root. When you go to Save the X Config in the Nvidia Gui, change the file to your home directory and save it there.
Then log into a terminal and type.
cp xorg.conf /etc/X11/
Reason this happens is because xorg.conf is owned by root, so whats happening is when you hit save its not overwriting it since you don't have the proper permissions.
