Angry Problems with NVIDIA GeForce FX Go5200 on inspiron 5150

I've been trying to get my card working on Linux with X4.3 to no avail. I first tried the generic 'nv' driver and all i got was a blurry red and white screen flahsing vertical lines. so i installed the nvidia drivers and changed my XF86Config to suit, however when i do a 'startx' or a 'xf86cfg', i get output on the screen like a 'cat /dev/urandom' was done and the system hangs. can someone help me with this problem?

Hello !

If I remember well, the inspiron 5150 is "wide screen" like my 8600. So before trying to install anything, you have to set in your conf file the suitable modelines for your screen.
You may find it on tuxmobile ! If you don't, give us your native screen resolution.

Good luck !

PS : excuse me for my poor english !

Nope, the Inspiron has a regular display. Can you post your XF86Config and the XFree86 log? Cheers.

Also: what distribution and kernel are you running? (Output of uname -a would help.)

(Just to comfort you: this is written on an Inspiron 5150 with splendid graphics. ;-)
