I removed nouveau and reinstalled nvidia driver then i saw the messages..........proprietary modules/drivers to be installed ubuntu should have kernel sources installed i've installed the sources and now it works with proprietary driver, now i'm gonna test the 3d games bug if its fixed or not...

What is the output of:

sudo lshw -C display; lsb_release -a; uname -a

Thanks

I've installed the sources and be able to install the proprietary nvidia drivers but the problem remains,
look what i got in the output of a 3d game exited while i tried to change resolution:

X Error of failed request: BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)
  Major opcode of failed request: 150 (XFree86-VidModeExtension)
  Minor opcode of failed request: 10 (XF86VidModeSwitchToMode)
  Value in failed request: 0x25b
