Dizzle7677 - you can remove the nvidia drivers with pacman (without buggering up any deps) by using

pacman -Rd nvidia nvidia-utils

Then reinstall

pacman -S nvidia nvidia-utils

I thought about this some more. See http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=156338
Looks to me like ArchLinux patched with a ubuntu patch or similar patch. Sound like a kernel problem and not a nvidia install problem.

what should I try to do, and why?
This is from dmesg:

NVRM: The NVIDIA GPU 0000:01:00.0 (PCI ID: 10de:0407) installed
NVRM: in this system is not supported by the 260.19.29 NVIDIA Linux
NVRM: graphics driver release.  Please see 'Appendix A -
NVRM: Supported NVIDIA GPU Products' in this release's README,
NVRM: available on the Linux graphics driver download page at
NVRM: www.nvidia.com.
Similar issues:


So, the driver thinks that it doesnt support your card. Probably a problem i your distro's pci id list.
Install the driver from nvidias site and should work.
