Unhappy Problem w/ Nvidia Drivers Geforce2 Go Dell inspiron 2650 running Ubuntu fiesty 7.04

I have a Dell Inspiron 2650 with a Geforce2 Go video card

I'm Running Ubuntu Fiesty 7.04 with all of the updates installed

I have tried using the envy program to get my drivers working, and various other ways but all have ended with the same result,

I get a black screen when I go to restart the computer after using Envy, and have to manually shut the computer down.

I also get a black screen at the login screen. I can hear sounds but have no login screen.

Sometimes I can get the screen up if I go ahead and login at the blank login and do Ctrl+alt+backspace. This sometimes takes me back to the login and has the Nvidia splash screen.

Im still new to all of the configurations of ubuntu so be patient with me.

If anyone has some specific answers for me please post ASAP.

Thanks Alot.

The driver README details how to install the driver. The sticky posts instruct you how to obtain assistance.
