    sh nvidia******.run
    modprobe nvidia
    vim /ect/X11/xf86.conf and changed the "nv" line to "nivdia"

    no errors pop up when booting, just when it hits the x loging screen the screen goes blank and the box locks up
    Looking closer at your XF86Config I've noticed a small difference with what I use. It may or may not be the culprit but it's something to try. My "Display" Section is different from yours. Each display entry looks like this:

    Code:
     Subsection "Display"
            Depth       24
            Modes       "1024x768" "800x600" "640x480"
            ViewPort    0 0
     EndSubsection
    You'll note the addition of the "Modes" line and the omission of the "Virtual" line.

    Did you modprobe nvidia as root before you tried to start up X Windows?

    What does lsmod | grep "nvidia" tell you?

    That means the nvidia module was not loaded. Are you sure there weren't any errors when you installed it?

    Sometimes it does, sometimes it doesn't. The lsmod should indeed return something. Try running lsmod by itself and scan through the results. Do you see nvidia anywhere?
