Failed to query NoScanout for screen 0

I’ve set up a PC with a Nvidia 7800GTX and Samsung widescreen monitor that should be at it’s default resolution of 1440 x 900 but the Font aliasing is pretty appalling and when I look in the Nvidia settings menu all I see in the panel on the right is;
Failed to query NoScanout for screen 0.
Having done a quick search I uninstalled the latest Nvidia drivers (from Additional Drivers) and install “recommended with updates” after a restart everything works fine in the Nvidia control panel but the Fonts still look rough, i’ve managed to make them look slightly better with “sub pixel geometry” and “hinting” which I found in “Customise look and feel”
