Default Display blanks when I installed nVidia GEForce GTS250 card

Hi ! I'm new to linux, so any help would be appreciated.

I installed a nVidia GEForce GTS250 graphics card in my Lenovo ThinkCentre desktop. However, the display remains blank. While installing the nVidia drivers, I get the message :

You do not appear to have an NVIDIA GPU supported by the 256.35 NVIDIA Linux graphics driver installed in this system.

Any idea how to fix this problem?

Thanks !

Unhappy Re: Display blanks when I installed nVidia GEForce GTS250 card

Finally installed the nvidia drivers. But there's no display; I get the following error message :


FATAL: Error inserting nvidia (/lib/modules/2.6.32.14-127.fc12.i686/kernel/drive
rs/video/nvidia.ko): No such device
(EE) NVIDIA: Failed to load the NVIDIA kernel module. Please check your
(EE) NVIDIA: system's kernel log for additional error messages.
(EE) Failed to load module "nvidia" (module-specific error, 0)
(EE) No drivers available.

Fatal server error:

Could someone please help me?
