I can get to the prompt and back just fine.

Go to the login prompt, log in and then run:
Code:
wget http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86/1.0-9755/NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9755-pkg1.run
I know you won't be able to cut and paste, so write it down if you need to.

Then:
Code:
./NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9755-pkg1.run
and then
Code:
nvidia-xconfig
Editing because I forgot something

After the wget, you will also need to run:
Code:
chmod 700 NVIDIA-Linux-x86-1.0-9755-pkg1.run

Ok, I was able to download it, but when I tried to run it, it said: Permission Denied. I was logged in as root when I downloaded it.

What do I do now?

Edit

I didn't do the chmod, ill go do it right now.

Ok I did chmod and ./NVIDIA...
It worked, but the installer said it need 'cc' in the path and I should check for gcc. What do I do now?

I'm not a Debian expert, but you need to aptget gcc. I'm not sure how the command should be formated.

That or see if you already have it installed, and change your path to include gcc.

Ok, I installed it successfully, but now it wants me to install libc. I don't know where to find it though...

Edit

I have found glibc and I am going to extract it and see if it works.

The VertRefresh and HorizSync don't match the specs of the monitor. So change it

Quote:
Horizontal scan range
30 - 81 kHz
Vertical scan range
56 - 76 Hz
Source: http://www.dell.com/content/products...=22&l=en&s=dfh
If that does not help, add the following to the device section of your xorg.conf
Code:
Option "UseEdidFreqs" "FALSE"
Option "UseEDID" "FALSE"
First try only the first one, next the second one and last both.
