nvidia: no devices detected

The nvidia driver is installed. But now another problem:

When i change the Driver "vesa" to Driver "nvidia", then i reboot. The error is "No devices detected. Fatal server error. No screen found."

I have tried putting BusID "PCI:02:00:0" into /etc/X11/XF86Config, but not successful. Any ideas? Thanks.

Tell us what distro you are using. To check exactly what the error is then as root do cat /var/log/XFree86.0.log | more . If you cannot interpret the errors (EE) then post the results here and someone should be able to help you reconfigure your X server.

You said it was installed. I assume you did remember to load the module, right? Also, did you make all the other required changes to XF86Config that the README file suggested?

And do you have some video, not a lack of video?
If not, so it is your configuration causing you trouble.
