nvidia 1.0-97.55 on Ubuntu
I currently have Ubuntu Dapper 6.06 LTS installed on a compaq presario V3000.

I installed the 1.0-9755 version, and it installed wonderfully at first. Upon rebooting however, I encountered these problems:

1. A blue screen comes up stating X cannot be loaded and takes me back to prompt

2. "NVIDIA kernel module has the version 1.0-7174 but this X module has the version 1.0-9755"

at this point I have to re-install the 9755 drivers every time I boot in order to get into gnome.

3. Upon installing the drivers the shut down menu has lost its shut down and reboot buttongs, and only gives me log-out, lock, switch user, and hibernate as options.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Follow every step of this howto:


I would bet you did not clean out the old driver fully.
