<standard answer, posted at least a hundred times>

Is the "nvidia" kernel module loaded? If not, does /sbin/modprobe nvidia as root help?

If it's loaded, or if you get the same error when you load it manually, then look in your kernel logs for a reason why the card didn't initialize. 9 times out of 10, it's because you have PnP OS set to yes in your BIOS, or because you have Assign IRQ to VGA set to no. These need to be no and yes, respectively.

</standard answer>
