/.. I rest my case yer Honor. That is correct. xorg.conf hasn't told the
system to use the nvidia driver. Like this:

   Section "Device"
      Identifier     "Device0"
      Driver         "nvidia"
      VendorName     "NVIDIA Corporation"
      BoardName      "D9M-20"
      Option         "NoLogo" "True"

I have no clue what your boardname is. But, it should work with just

Open a terminal window.

cd /etc/X11
cp xorg.conf xorg.conf.orig

I get this in terminal= cp: cannot create regular file `xorg.conf.orig': Permission denied

(you now have a copy of what works, even if half-assed.)

sudo gedit xorg.conf
just change that driver line to 'nvidia'

There is absolutely nothing in getit, its blank. There is no driver line at all.

Save that and exit

Log out and login again. It'll blow or go. :) Ric
