hi just put lucid beta2 on, and the enhance driver crashes the box, wierd. it loops round the login window, with a frozen mouse!

any ideas where to get the driver from.

tried the hardware drivers button, but it can't find a thing now. mind i did remove all the nvidia modules

nVidia does not have Linux drivers that support the GeForce GTX 400 series yet. You are left with using vesa or nv as the driver for now until there is support. This is just a problem to early adopters while the rest is smart enough to wait. Give a few months although you are using an experimental version of Ubuntu, so no wonder you have problems.

I did not say anything about using Windows drivers.

BTW, Do not short hand words. Spell them out. This is not a texting site.
