Yeah, tried, had to reinstall linux. Linux was stuck in an endless nvidia splash screen cycle, not your fault, mine. Are there any programs for generating a xorg.conf file without having to touch any code?

there is absolutely no way whatsoever that that would lead to having to reinstall linux. just change your runmode to level 3 and x won't start to load on boot. try it. run it, show us the errors from /var/log/Xorg.0.log afterwards if it fails.

Well it did and i did reinstall. But I have a working video card now. All I had to do was type nvidia in place of nv in the ??driver?? section of the .conf file. Thanks for the help though.
