Default Re: Newly installed 96.43.19 driver won't work

You should have the file: nvidia-bug-report.log.gz in your home folder.
Show output of "dmesg" command else.
(96.43.18 is incompatible with server 1.9)
To many errors, but like X-es does not start on nvidia this may be the KMS and a framebuffer problem. Try to add options to kernel line like:
vga=791 (supported framebuffer of course)
Option: nomodeset too.
[mi] EQ overflowing. The server is probably stuck in an infinite loop.

Wait for NVIDIA, probably this is a xorg 1.9 bug but with KMS of intel, nouveau, radeon - disable KMS in kernel (nomodeset).
Warning: Xalloc: requesting unpleasantly large amount of memory: 0 bytes.
I have this warning too, but everything works.

(II) NVIDIA(0): Initialized GART.
This may be a hardware problem, e.g. with the radiator but gart is initializing.
