A hint about your setup would be helpful.... :-) I Assume you use Linux.
Our ASUS VG278H monitors works fine in 3D stereo with Nvidia Quadro FX5800 cards. I have pasted my notes about how I configured X.
Asus VG278H flat panel 3D screens and Ubuntu 12.04
These screen have built-in emitters that actually work under Linux, with Nvidia drivers version 310 or newer. (These drivers are packaged in Ubuntu 12.04, so they're easy to install)
Install by closing X and install:
sudo service lightdm stop
use Ctrl-Alt-F1 to swith to a text console and login (possibly, but not strictly necessary) as root
wajig install nvidia-experimental-310
This file is very important for geting the right video mode for the login screen (via the script in /etc/X11/set_1920x1080.sh, otherwise the X-server doesn't start at all). It also makes sure that the username has to be typed instead of selected
from a list (very important when the system has many users)
This script calls the xrandr tool to set the videomode
xrandr --output DVI-I-3 --mode 1920x1080 --rate 120
It seems that when everything is installed, there are still some tweaks to do (not completely sure though)
For stereo to work the first time, I had to stop lightdm (see above), switch to a text console and login as normal user, then do
startx to start the X-window system. Now check if stereo works. If so, then switch back to the text console and kill the X-server (Ctrl-C). The restart lightdm and login from the
graphical login screen. Then it should work.
I dont know how important the xorg.conf file actually is, but here's my copy

Subject: [PyMOL] NVIDIA 3D error
I think I have tried all the solutions available. I continue to get: error: the requested 3d display mode is unavailable. I can run all the examples; apparently correctly.
