I recently installed the amd 64 Nvidia driver for my Gforce Go 6150. Worked very nicely untill i restarted. After restart i recieved the following
Failed to start the X server (your graphical interface). It is likely that it is not set up correctly. Would you like to view the X server output to diagnose the problem. *prompt y/n*
After hitting yes i get the following

I am running ubuntu 7.02 Fiesty Fawn on a Compaq V3000 with a Gforce Go 6150 and an AMD 64 turion
edit: i have reinstalled ubuntu and reinstalled the NVIDIA drivers to arrive at the same screen. and neither of the help sites listed well.. helped.
Again sorry if anything is mispelled / mistyped had to do it all by hand. Hope this explains everything.
