KVM are supposed to be a transparent connection to the device (keyboard, video (monitor) mouse), but of course since it is another physical interface in the middle of the chain, it is possible it could affect the result (even though your computer does boot and gets a desktop under the nv driver (vga mode))
--it would be more certain if you directly connected, however if that is not convenient, we can just assume it is OK
what happens if you run as root, since you now have a graphics desktop (x server) nvidia-settingsyou have to save the X-server settings once you set the resolution
Also as root ( #) modprobe nvidia, lsmod, modinfo nvidia, glxinfo etc
--to see what is running or not..
