    If you forgot to type modprobe nvidia, try it now as root then try to start your X Windows.

    Hello, not exactly sure what your problem is but I wanted to give you my xorg.conf anyway. (Graphics card belongs to same catagory >> Geforce2 MX400/200)

    I've made my own xorg.conf file (learned a lot while doing so):

    You also may have to change the ModulePath, RgbPath and FontPath at least, if your using the latest Xorg(7) implementation.

    please note that you can't just copy and paste this config file. Every computer is unique.
