Maybe that's not the problem. Check your "Screen" Section. The name of
the graphic card to use is also mentioned there and probably still set
to "Generic Video Card", while you changed it to "GeForce4 MX440" in
the "Device" section. Both names must be identical. By the way, it
would be a safer way to run

dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xfree86

and select the "nvidia" driver. This way, debconf will know of your
settings and not change them back again the next time X us upgraded or
debconf reconfigures the XFree config. You need the nvidia driver
anyway because your GF4 is not supported by the version of XFree you
run. Or you tell debconf not to manage the XFree config at all.
