Default Re: Ubuntu Gutsy amd64 with 8500GT = black screen

Well here my driver isn't detected, it shows some stuff when I turn on the computer, kind of retries 3 times and then the Low Graphics settings are activated... I set up "NVIDIA -> GeForce 8 Series" but it still loads as Low Graphics and I can't use apps like Google Earth.

When I type #glxinfo | grep rendering
to check if the GLX is working, it says it's missing...

My xorg.conf looks fine...
Restrict hardware is enable and bla bla bla

Any idea of what's happening?

I'm new to ubuntu/linux but my friend helped me, we tried everything and it still didn't work... If anyone could help..
