Default 9600GT - Screen is blank after installing NVIDIA 180.22 driver on Ubuntu Hardy Heron

I am not able to get the NVIDIA driver working with Ubuntu Hardy Heron. I have the 9600GT. I tried all the procedures mentioned in Ubuntu help under https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Bi...erHowto/Nvidia and https://help.ubuntu.com/community/NvidiaManual. I also did lot of searching in the Ubuntu forums, but no luck.

The current version that I tried was 180.22, but I had tried a couple of earlier versions before and it was the same problem.

Finally, I saw this note at the Ubuntu https://help.ubuntu.com/community/NvidiaManual page, and decided to try it out.
"If dmesg | grep -i nv mentions NVRM: Xid your best bet is to follow these instructions and then contact NVIDIA as only NVIDIA have the source to decipher these error codes. Xid errors are caused for variety of reasons (interrupt issues, hardware conflicts/bugs, BIOS bugs, kernel bugs, driver bugs...) and receiving the same Xid code as someone else does not mean your problems are related."

In my case as well, I am receiving the NVRM: Xid messages.

X works perfectly fine with the "nv" driver (without hardware acceleratation). As soon as I switch to "nvidia" driver, all I get is a blank screen. The monitor is not going out of range, it just displays nothing. I do not hear the GNOME startup sound as well.

I am attaching the logs for more information.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
