Default Newbie trying to get drivers in Ubuntu

Hi, I'm a complete Linux novice, but learning, so please go gently and give me idiots guide help. It will be impossible to patronise me with instructions!

I have a GeForce 5200 card and the latest Ubuntu (Fiesty). I've downloaded the 9755 version nvidia driver. But x aborts when I try and run it using nvidia, and I have to go back to command with CTRL+ALT+F2 to reconfigure to use nv. The packaged nv driver works ok.

Any ideas? I've attached my nvidia log file, which I *think* I've generated ok...

You appear to be using a GeForce FX 5200. Im not sure if that chip is supported in the driver you are using. You can try the driver listed in this thread instead: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/showthread.php?t=81668
