Default Re: TFT display jitters/trembles (GeForce Go 7600 256MB)

Now I tried both the
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9629-pkg1.run
and
NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9742-pkg1.run
drivers but I was not able to install the drivers properly:

NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9629-pkg1.run:
When I did
Code:
rmmod nvidia
it worked, but unfortunately my Compiz didn't work any more (it was only white - the entire screen/cube), and refresh rate was 50 Hz despite 60 Hz

NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9742-pkg1.run:
The installer says
Code:
ERROR: Unable to determine the NVIDIA kernel module filename.
ERROR: Installation has failed.  Please see the file
       '/var/log/nvidia-installer.log' for details.  You may find suggestions
       on fixing installation problems in the README available on the Linux
       driver download page at www.nvidia.com.
Why wouldn't those drivers install smoothly?
Would'nt it be more easily to provide DEB-files instead of those installers which bypass the package manager?

I despair of it...
Maybe it would be just a small entry in /etc/X11/xorg.conf which solved the issue. Is there a way to verify whether the graphics card is defective?

PS: How may I verify the MD5 checksum of those files?
