Default GeForce 8800 GT & Acer AL2216W monitor

Running Kubuntu 8.04

Have been trying to install NVidia drivers for my card with no success to date.

I have tried many times, always with the same result.

run "envyng -t".

Output reports the graphics card correctly and that graphics card is supported. It then does it's thing and finally asks if I want to restart. I input 'n' and drop to the command line and run 'nvidia-xconfig' and get a new xorg.conf file.

I then reboot. On rebooting I get a black screen and the computer is frozen, front panel power switch is inop. Power off the power supply and back on, then reboot into the recovery kernal and use the option to do an auto X configuration which gives me a generic file.

The native size of the monitor is 1680x1050.

I ran "sudo nvidia-bug-report.sh and have attached the output. Correction I tried to attach the output, but the file size 162.1 KB exceeded the max size of 146.9. I split into 2 files, but then they are reported as invalid ???????????????????????????????????

Does the graphics card support the monitor??

If so is it possible to get the NVidia driver working??

Default Re: GeForce 8800 GT & Acer AL2216W monitor

Upgraded to Kubuntu 8.10, booted the h/w driver app, installed and activated the 180.x driver for my 8800GT card

Rebooted the machine and the Kubuntu hangs during the reboot with the following message:

HDIO_DRIVE_CMD failed: Input/output error
stopping Firestarter
stopping nptd

it hangs trying to stop ntpd

Here is a copy of the xconfig file created during the installation/activation:

# xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
# Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# package.
# Note that some configuration settings that could be done previously
# in this file, now are automatically configured by the server and settings
# here are ignored.
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command:
# sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

Section "Monitor"

Any ideas?????
