comment Hard disk going down
I realize that the turnaround time for answers on serverfault.com is pretty quick, but I would expect that on a server, you wouldn't waste the time waiting for answers, and instead get your butt in gear replacing that drive. Neither would you bother waiting hours for chkdsk to do its job.

comment nVidia driver on Linux, and the need to reset the resolution on reboot
Yes, I did that. That's why I'm using version 185.18.14 of the nVidia driver, rather than 165 or some such that comes with Ubuntu.

Nope. Didn't work. @Kent: searching for EDID (with grep -i no less) or 1600 in my boot log doesn't come up with anything at all.

I am using Gnome, but I don't have "Display" under System -> Preferences.

Ok, I'll try that but that doesn't explain why the 1600x1024 resolution is not in the xorg.conf file.

comment Minimize power usage of Windows file server at home
+1 for suggesting that it doesn't have to be on all the time, unless you don't spend 16 hours a day either at work or asleep...

comment 4GB memory seen as 3GB in BIOS
It seems pretty excessive to allocate an entire gig of RAM for video memory on an onboard video card, when the GeForce GTX 275 has 896 megs. 256 Megs would seem more reasonable. Besides, the BIOS should still show that there are 4 gigs of total physical memory, even if some of that RAM is used for video.
