    Nvidia drivers


    Hello,

    I just installed Ubuntu in a dual boot with Win XP, and when I triy to install the video driver for my onboard video card I get a 404 file not found error from the install routine.

    Is it possible to go to the Nvidia web site and download and install the driver for my video card? I'm stuck with 800 x 500 low res right now and I want to be able to go to the higher video resolutions.

    Thanks for any help you can be.

    Which version of Ubuntu are you using? Does your machine has internet access?
    It is amazing what you can accomplish if you do not care who gets the credit.

    What I want to know now is how do I manually install it after locating and downloading it from the Nvidia website.

    I don't know how to tell which version of Ubuntu I have.

    Yes, I have internet access on this machine.
