follow this to get the nvidia driver installed.


0mhz refresh rate is a black screen. Just ignore that.

but man
it's not black screen

the screen is working
but seems that it doesnt recognize my Geforce 5500
coz the desktop effect can't be applied.

Each time i apply it,
reLog-in...
something happened so suddenly, if i enable the desktop effect.
Then it jump into the Log-In again... OMG.

That's what I'm saying. It's wrong.


A couple of things though:

Please answer the question mk72 asked.
If english is not your native language you should put all the more effort into expressing yourself clearly. Write complete sentences and try to avoid abbreviations, please.
