I will see if that works when i go home this afternoon :-D
After consulting the /usr/share/doc/NVIDIA*/README file again, I noticed that NVIDIA's drivers on laptops read the EDID data from a non-standard location and they allowed an option to override it. Following their laptop directions I was able to get all modes working. This was done by modifying the /etc/modules.conf file and adding the following line:
options nvidia NVreg_SoftEDIDs=0
