    As root:

    Code:
    modprobe nvidia
    Then you'll need to edit your /etc/X11/XF86Config (or xorg.conf). Scroll to the section that says device:

    Code:
    Section "Device"
         Identifier "FX5500"
         Driver "nvidia"
    Then in the Screen section, make sure that you change the Device line to be:

    Code:
    Device "FX5500"
    Restart X and you should be good.
