Okay, seems that I failed my way forward from my last position. I tried to install the 173.1437 drivers that Mint 16 said were "recommended" Then I tried to use the computer, but it was lagging crazy bad. I would click on something, walk away and come back to the computer 2 minutes later, and finally the action would be done. I am not kidding to say that I literally took 20 minutes to reopen the drivers window.
I am guessing that the latest Mint doesn't support the kernels or something of that sort. I then followed the instructions on page one to install the newest drivers for my card which is a nVidia Quadro FX 3000. The nVidia site said that the newest driver for that was the 173.1439. I downloaded, and did exactly what the instructions say, and it loaded them up. The only difference is that it never stopped the install and then blacklisted the noveau driver, it just installed it the first time. I finished the install, restarted the MDM, and again, only one screen is recognized.
On top of that, it is crazy laggy as well. I mean CRAZY LAGGY, like the cpu and gpu are actually fighting each other at times. It has these screen "mishaps" as well where there are these small icons that appear on the left and top of the screen and the menu is almost not tinted at all, where you cannot really read the names of the applications.
Any ideas on what could be the problem would be appreciated.
