Probably no-one who knows about nvidia drivers will see your reply
because you have left the subject line as the digest subject.  I
suggest you post it again as a reply to your original message.  Or at
least post it with the correct subject line if you can't actually do
it as a reply to the original message.  I don't know about nvidia I am
afraid.  Possibly it might be better to post a new message giving the
message you are getting and details of the graphics card.  Google any
errors you are getting first of course, though I assume you have
already done that.  Perhaps add nvidia to the search.
