as a last resort, you might want to try another distro (Mandrake 10.1 !!!)

if it works with another distro, then u know that your slack system wasn;t configured properly, and if it doesn't then you know that the problem might be hardware related.

The only NVIDIA driver I have managed to get working with the 2.6 kernel is the 6111 version, and it needs a simple patch.

Please see this thread and follow the easy instructions in Linux24's post:

This worked very well for me.

NVRM: No NVIDIA graphics adapter found!
The error message suggests the installer didn't find any nvidia gpu in your system.
Plzz run "lspci" and post the output here.

his xorg.conf has this line:
Identifier "** NVIDIA (generic) [nv]"

unless this was added in manually it looks like an nvidia card was detected.
