    90% success is usually due to a misread step or bad luck, sometimes even both.

    However, if you are not comefortable with the nvidia readme file, follow this tutorial to get the nvidia card working.

    help help!! cant login to X!!

    sir i followd the instructions given on the link you gave... i have already changed my xorg.conf but when i type startx (using root and "me")

    here is the message :

    Undefined device "nvidia" reference by Screen "Screen 1"

    (EE) problem parsing the config file
    (EE) errror parsing the config file

    note: before i install the dirver, i have already config my driver to the nvidia gneric driver in xorg.. hmm is there a relationship with this?

    as far as i could remember here is the content of Screen 1

    Screen "Screen 1"
    Device "nvidia"
    Monitor "AOC"

    something like that...

    i need your help...

    is my ndvidia driver really installed? ? ?
    i checked my /dev the results for /dev/nvidia is:

    nvida0 up to nvidia7

    try running xorgconfig as root and reconfigure your graphics system. Also do you have a dual monitor setup? If you have a single monitor setup, it shouldn't be asking for Screen 1, it should be Screen 0.

    Looking at your PC specs, it says you have a geforce 2 card. Now, which version of nvidia driver are you trying to install? IIRC, nvidia stopped supporting geforce2 based cards back in the 7174 driver. You can download it here
