This is a bit of a guess, but am I right in thinking the card you have
is a Geforce 4 Ti 4400?
If so, according to the Nvidia site  it requires the 96.43.xx driver
which if I'm right is known as nvidia-glx-96 in Ubuntu.
You should be able to find it in Synaptic or from a terminal run ...
sudo apt-get install nvidia-glx-96
Hope this helps.
