Slowly graphics with nvidia card. Problem with xorg.conf file


Hello everybody. Recently I installed Debian, and I can't achieve to make function the nVidia card I have.

At first, this happened:
  • The resolution is fine.
  • ...but the windows don't move fast (if someone try to move them) and everything, in general is slow.
  • Eventually, the text (on the windows or web) disappears until you select it (disappear for a second)

nvidia card = nVidia GeForce 5200 FX

What did I do:
Follow these steps
What happened?
  • The X server didn't start: I saw a black screen with a undescore.

What did I do:
Enter in recovery mode and remove xorg.conf file (witch in that guide has different path):

Code:
root@kant:~# rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-nvidia.conf
What happened?
  • The same as the top.


I think the machine has the nouveau drivers (I recieved a message (when installing nvidia drivers) telling that there was a conflict in the kernel, since the nouveau drivers were still active, until I create xorg.conf file).

Thanks for reading. Regards

Thanks for answering, EDDY1.

I followed the steps that apparently were not taken into account by the Wiki's nvidia dkms instructions. But the result is the same.

And note that the metapackage

is already installed by actual wiki:

Also I've tried with differents xorg files, but x-server don't start
