Sorry. I assumed you knew how to use the text mode because in your second post, you mentioned the text mode. Go with Quakeboy's advice. Change the HorizSync and VertRefresh in your xorg.conf file. The values in your file are too large. Now enable it, and re-start gnome.

If it doesn't work, and you get the white screen again, immediately, use '<ctrl> + <alt> + F1' to go to text.

Then log in with your user name and password.

Now copy your log files to your home directory. That's
Code:
cp /var/log/Xorg.0.* ~
Now you have probably two log files copied to your home directory. One is older than the other. Rename your xorg.conf file the way you did before, and re-start gnome. Now post these log files for us to see.

Thanks. Ok, I need to know more about your screen setup. Do you have one or two monitors connected? How are they connected, through a 15 pin vga port, or a DVI port. Hint: Check how it plugs in, and count the number of pins in the plug.

AIGLX or NVIDIA?

I might be wrong....

but if you're using the nvidia drivers I'm pretty sure that you are supposed to use the NVIDIA GL system.

It's not necessary, but I have an FX5200 and if I use anything other than NVIDIA rendering (as in the beryl-manager tray menu), then I get a white screen upon log-in.

Hm. So What I would do to find out if this is the problem is to tell us if the white screen happens before you log in or after.

If its after, then it is probably AIGLX. run "xdpyinfo" in a terminal in gnome and give us the output.

If it is before...then its probably still something wrong with all the settings that we're all talking about.

Try using this one just for grins. This is mine that I use with an old ti500 nvidia card and the 9631 driver.

Code:
# /etc/X11/xorg.conf (xorg X Window System server configuration file)
#
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
#
# Edit this file with caution, and see the /etc/X11/xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man /etc/X11/xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
#
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# package.
#
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command:
#   sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

xorg & nividia can be fun at times to setup and ubunta is not my distro. You have have a look at some of the doc's in the Gentoo site to help you set up xorg.

Then there is something you aren't telling us. If you have installed any other video driver software you need to uninstall it. You should probably reinstall the nvidia 9631 driver.

Hmm, ok, this really should have been posted in the laptop section, not desktop, but oh well.

Anyways, go ahead and try to reinstall the driver. Make sure there are no errors in the process.

I have what may be a solution, but I need to know a few more things. Is your /etc/modprobe.d a file or a directory? If it's a directory, could you please let us know its contents?

There are a few module parameters I'd like to pass to the nvidia module each time it boots, but I need to know what files you have in there, so I know which one to put them in.

This is the line I want to add:
Code:
options nvidia NVreg_SoftEDIDs=0 NVreg_Mobile=1 NVreg_FlatPanelMode=1
But I don't know where to add it in your system yet.

Sam
