Default Fail to install driver for Quadro NVS 135M on Dell D630

HI all
I have install the NVIDIA-Linux-x86-173.14.12-pkg1.run for my Dell d630 notebook(with Quadro NVS 135M card),but after I reboot the system, the screen is dark with nothing on it。 And after I input the user name and password, I can hear the booting-up music,but the screen still show nothing 。
After that , I have tried the beta driver NVIDIA-Linux-x86-177.70-pkg1.run,but the situation is still the same。
I have run the nvidia-bug-report.sh under these two situations,and the results are in the attachment。
Could anyone tell me how to make the driver run correctly?

PS: I have install the dell d630's newest bios version a13. My system is Debian testing(lenny)

The driver fails to read out EDID information of your monitor, so it probably uses wrong frequencies and settings for it which the monitor can't display.

(WW) NVIDIA(0): Unable to get display device CRT-0's EDID; cannot compute DPI
(WW) NVIDIA(0): from CRT-0's EDID.

You can try to either read out the EDID in windows (if it works there) or search for a working EDID on the net, then tell the driver to use it.

Or you can overwrite several EDID informations, with options such as

Option UseEdidFreqs "false"

in your xorg.conf.

Please read the Appendix B of the nvidia README for those options, and try to


startx -- -logverbose 6


then create another bug report, so we see why it fails to validate several modes.

I have add the

Option UseEdidFreqs "false"

to the Monitor section of the xorg.conf, but after the system reboot,the X server does not start up and directly boot into the console mode. Then I run the startx -- -logverbose 6 command, and the X is still the same situation. I have run the nvidia-bug-report.sh and have the report log in the attachment.

The real problem is it is not finding the LCD display.

If I had your system I would
a. Use the latest beta driver
b. Remove xorg.conf and let the X server create one from scratch
c. Start from there.

I'm attaching my D620 config in case it helps.
