Default NVIDIA GeForce FX5500

Would really appreciate some help on this one ... been struggling for hours and hours

I just bought an FX5500 this afternoon and have been struggling to get in running with the NVIDIA module. I followed the directions on the post for the FX5200 and had no success.

The error message in my Xorg.0.log notes:
"Failed to initilize the NVIDIA kernel module. Please ensure that there is a supported NVIDIA GPU in this system and NVIDIA device files have been created properly. **ABORTING**".

Also when I try to run the update_drv command the response is:
"("pci10de,326") already in use as a driver or alias."

Where can I go from here?

I found the problem.

When I update_drv command, you need this:
#update_drv -a -i '"pcixxxx,xxx"' nvidia

If you typed it in without the nvidia as per the original thread, you first need to do an #update_drv -d -i etc etc etc.
