Default Re: I think I have messed it all up ! (Ubuntu 7.10 and NVIDIA GeForce 6600 LE)

my video card is 7600gs AGP version
I was upgrading ubuntu 7.04 to 7.10(i used envy to install nvidia driver 100.14.19 in 7.04 and it worked well)
I uninstalled the nvidia driver and envy and change the video card driver section in xorg.conf to "vesa" as the envy faq says
then i used the ubuntu update manager to upgrade my 7.04 to 7.10
after rebooted, i got in the gnome (vesa driver)and installed envy 0.9.8 then installed the nvidia driver 100.14.19
then rebooted again, this time i got a blank screen
i crtl+alt+f1 and followed step B in envy's faq here
http://albertomilone.com/pmwiki/pmwi...tionsForUbuntu
then rebooted
I still got the blank screen
according to the author of envy the driver installation went well,
that's why i am here asking for help
Please let me know if u need more info
THX in advance!
Hereis my xorg.conf file
