nVidia GT520 Installation problem in Debian wheezy


Hello,

I am new in Debian. I installed Debian in my new computer with nVidia GT520. After one-week effort, I still cannot successfully install the nVidia driver. Could any one teach how to do the installation step by step. My current Debian is the updated wheezy. Thanks a lot!

Thanks for your answer. I have tried that script when I stalled squeeze. However, it does not work.

After trying many methods, I get the following message in Xorg.99.log.

Not sure. I would now start from scratch using the Debain Method. I have read 2 possible issues :

1 -- Conflict with Xorg --> Have you ran a update ?

2 -- Network Set up issue --- > Are you trying to manage remotely ?
