What OS are you using? What driver version are you trying to use? I recommend to start a support ticket at www.xfxforce.com and then PM me the ticket number so I can look into it for you.

Wow...sorry I didn't include this before *smacks forehead*: Ubuntu Feisty, nvidia driver: 9755 with envy "manual", as instructed to on ubuntuforums.org.

The complete story, is that the restricted-drivers-manager, envy, the nvidia installer, and envy manual all ended up with the same result: my machine would lock up after gnome had completely loaded.

The last thing I tried to do before coming here was I tried to install the 9755 driver as instructed to here:

Using the envy "manual" install. My machine would lockup when GNOME was finished loading. I could move my mouse as it was loading, but not after it was completely done.

Thanks,
-Andruk

I apologize to all. I just noticed the title was 760 instead of 7600.

I have an XFX GeForce 7600 GT 256 DDR3 MB AGP Video Card installed in a machine that runs Ubuntu Feisty only (no Windows on this machine).

When I attempt to install the nvidia driver, it either doesn't start XServer correctly, or it freezes my machine once GNOME starts.

I have tried Ubuntu's restricted-drivers-manager, envy automatic, envy manual (9755 driver, as instructed by TSElliot on ubuntuforums.org), and the official nvidia instructions as well. Nothing gets me past GNOME freezing.

Does anybody have a fix or know where I can find one?
