Default Re: GEFORCE FX 5200 / UBUNTU 7.04 / BLANK SCREEN AT BOOT

Are you installing the drivers from the classic .run file or from any kind of DEBs that Ubuntu has?
Cause I own an FX 5200 and I use it with no such problem on openSuSE 10.2(with apic and acpi=on) with 9755 driver and 100.14.03 one and all the previous ones including 9631.
Also I had installed in the past Kubuntu 6.06 and I also didn't have such problems.
I haven't use your distro but I think Kubuntu is almost the same with Ubuntu.

My suggestion: Install the 9755 driver provided from NVIDIA's site, and use nvidia-xconfig in installation to configure your xorg.conf.
Note: You must install kernel-headers deb before in order to build the driver!

If the problem persists install another distro(openSuSE 10.2 really worths trying and works excellent with this card!!) cause your card generally works perfect under linux.
