It seems that the driver is available in 2.6.31.6 but not in 2.6.32.6. And it's 190.53 or 185.18.36 the one you need. You can try to get the right one ...

    You can try to get the right one from Nvidia and build it in 2.6.32.6.
    Or you can boot in 2.6.31.6, edit /etc/X11/xorg.conf to load nvidia in place of nv, and start X again.
    You may try to simply load the driver in 2.6.32.6

    Code:
    modprobe nvidia
    but I think it should fail.

    0 + 1 = 1 != 2 <> 3 != 4 ...

    Hi, I don't know what happened but it wasn't good. After I read your message I booted in 2.6.31.6 and used mc edit to change nv to nvidia in xorg.conf. When I rebooted I couldn't get back into my desktop, obviously the graphical display had stopped working and all I could do was type commands. Just turned on now and the desktop is thankfully working but there's no change to the graphics driver situation. I don't know if there's a log I could post of what happened?

    You could run
    Code:
    startx
    at a prompt and see what error messages you have.

    In 2.6.31.6, try
    Code:
    modprobe nvidia
    to see if there are any error messages. If nothing yet works, I can't go any further, perhaps it's a hardware poblem, don't know. I have installed the driver on a number of machines rather simply.

    Good luck.

    It can't be a hardware problem, my graphics card worked fine on win xp. Modprobe just said:
    FATAL: Module nvidia not found.

    I think I'll try a new operating system, maybe Ubuntu will bring me more luck.

    Thanks for all your patience and help anyway.

    I had a similar issue in Mandriva 2010, my fix was enabling Anti Aliasing oddly enough.
    It dropped my cpu usage from 45% to 10%
