Default GeForce 5500 FX "no screens found"

I am having an issue installing the 9755 nvidia drivers for linux for an x86 using a 5500 FX card. I receive the following error message in my Xorg log file.

(II) Setting vga for screen 0.
(**) NVIDIA(0): Depth 24, (--) framebuffer bpp 32
(==) NVIDIA(0): RGB weight 888
(==) NVIDIA(0): Default visual is TrueColor

(II) UnloadModule: "fb"
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.

Fatal server error:
no screens found
I read a few articles and found nothing on this issue or just dont understand. Also I can start X server after reinstalling the driver. Any help for a newbie? Thanks
