Black screen with Nvidia driver on Slackware 12 (DELL Inspiron)
 
Hi, I've just downloaded and tried to install the NVIDIA driver (v. 97.43.01) on my DELL Inspiron laptop running Slackware 12.
The installation procedure went fine but then after running "startx" the screen goes black...
Any hints on what should be fixed? What information do you guys need in order to help me? My NVIDIA card is GeForce4 440 Go.
Thanks,
EDBOASF

Try adding the following option to the Device section of xorg.conf:
Option "UseDisplayDevice" "DFP"
