I thought I did them changes

but.. now I've removed ubuntu feisty and reinstalled edgy because everything used to work with that

still doesn't work
after installing edgy (ubuntu 6.10) I installed the drivers and set the xorg.conf to use nvidia drivers instead of nv
then I got this error
Code:
(II) Setting vga for screen 0.
(**) NVIDIA(0): Depth 24, (--) framebuffer bpp 32
(==) NVIDIA(0): RGB weight 888
(==) NVIDIA(0): Default visual is TrueColor
(==) NVIDIA(0): Using gamma correction (1.0, 1.0, 1.0)
(**) NVIDIA(0): Enabling RENDER acceleration
(II) NVIDIA(0): Support for GLX with the Damage and Composite X extensions is
(II) NVIDIA(0):     enabled.
(EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to load the NVIDIA kernel module!
(EE) NVIDIA(0):  *** Aborting ***
(II) UnloadModule: "nvidia"
(II) UnloadModule: "ramdac"
(II) UnloadModule: "fb"
(EE) Screen(s) found, but none have a usable configuration.

Fatal server error:
no screens found
now since I had no clue how to fix that because kernel module was installed for as far as I knew.. I decided to try that automatix thing
which solved that problem but I get them stripes all over the screen again
but I did manage to make the nvidia bug report.. maybe this one has the information you need

So I'm going to repeat again. I don't have any problems with regular nvidia drivers since I've removed all ubuntu nvidia files/modules from my system.
I'm really surprised ubuntu developers are doing nothing to resolve this issue after so many people experience exact the same problem. Just check google if you don't believe me.

how about this then..
did all but the bios.. which I'd rather not touch because I think I'll somehow destroy everything with that

on startup I get some error about nvidia kernel module not being good or something

*bump*

could it be that my card is broken somehow?
even though that'd be weird cos normal screen with "nv" drivers work fine..
