Nvidia Problem Please help


Im using Ubuntu 9.04 and i have a nvidia geforce 7500le, everytime i use linux to install the driver which is NVIDIA Accelerated Graphics driver (version 180), it doesnt work. i restart my computer and i makes me run in Low graphics mode because theres a problem it says the card failed. So i went back and went to an older version of the driver which is (version 173) and it did the same thing. and this graphics card seems like its not in use.
If u guys can please help me figure this out. and give me step by step instructions because im a newbie and thats why im in this forum. thx alot i hope u guys can help

Did you run
Code:
sudo nvidia-xconfig
after installing the driver? Try it and see if that works.

Not that I have any suggestions, but just say that I also have this problem:
1) Ubuntu 9.04
2) Geforce 4 ti 4600 (seems Ubuntu tries to make it use its legacy package but same outcome as yours

--> same symptoms --> kept defaulting to 640x480. Tried running dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg (DON'T do that folks) which just borked it all up.


So what did I end up doing? I gave Ubuntu the finger and installed Mepis. Ahhh. There we go.
