Do you have all of nvidia or nouveau installed right? You install it from your repository or make it yourself? Doesn't like your module or how you have xorg.conf configured.

I think you will have to log in in the text mode then issue the command
Code:

sudo apt-get remove --purge nvidia-*
sudo apt-get install lubuntu-destkop
sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf
echo 'nouveau' | sudo tee -a /etc/modules

nvidia is probably conflicting with the nouveau driver. After you done that you can reboot and you should be able to log in on a graphical interface from which you can re install the nvidia driver using the additional driver tool in Ubuntu.

Good luck to you!

X11 Problems
 
The four steps worked good, It let me lolg back into graphical mode. But when I try to install additional drivers there are 6 listed for Nvidia 2 experimental, 2 post release, 1 old driver ver and 1 that states "version current". This is the one I used but after a reboot I am right back where I started. Same error that I posted in an earlier post. I actually tried them all and still have same results.

If you removed the conflicting nvidia modules so that nouveau works ok, X works ok, then you reinstalled nvidia so that it conflicts with nouveau again, yes you will be right back where you started from. You can use nvidia or nouveau not both.

Ok, that's why they call me a nube. It is working ok now, thanks for your help. What started this mess is a while back I put UE 3.4 on my laptop and have been so impressed with it I figured I'd dump my os on the desktop and put the new 3.5 on it. I still can't it to do the same cool eye candy but will keep working on it. Thanks again.

Just an update, I have spent a whole Sunday trying to get the nouveau out and the nvidea drivers in so I can have all the eye candy. I have read so many forums and help links I think I am going blind. I will NOT give up. I have no problem getting nouveau out and nvidea installed but then I get that common error "fatal server error: no screens found". I have dumped the whole system and reinstalled 4 times because I folowed so many forum help screens the system wouldn't even boot anymore. Is it possible my Hauppauge video capture card is causing all these problems.......weird I just had that thought while typing this. Any ideas my friends.

What is the model of the graphics card are you installing?

SnackenJackel 03-07-2013 08:05 PM

After fighting with this for over a week with no results I figured I would start from scratch AGAIN and try the 64bit ver. .................Maybe I should just give up, the 64bit ver. installs great but the graphic screen just sits there, when you click on anything it is so sluggish and unresponsive the system is unusable. I have gone over threads with no luck. Do I really have to go back to windowz...UGH.

I set up ArchLinux once at got all that stuff working. Than I tried it on an other machine and everything went to hell. I just tried googling every single odd dependency or whatnot.
