    http://us.download.nvidia.com/XFree8...-270.41.06.run

    is this the driver you installed
    NVIDIA-Linux-x86-270.41.06.run

    don't worry about cuda that has nothing to do with why the card is not being recognized
    you only need to install cuda when your card is up and running otherwise its pointless

    Ive been searching the web trying to help you get this problem sorted Ive come across some bugs with Xorg and that driver was meant to have fix it

    you have two cards sandybridge optiums I think you can turn one off in the bios as far as I can remember

    Hi, i've successfully installed the driver from nvidia, then with the driver's shipped utility i've set the resolution of the desktop and saved the config.
    When i reboot, the resolution is set to 640x480 instead of my desidered res.
    Any idea why the res is always reset to 640x480?
    Many thanks!

    if you are using kde remember to go into setting and make sure that it is not reload the last saved configuration basically a preloaded desktop
    when you set the desktop res does it stay what you what it at until you reboot??

    when you install the graphics driver when you logout and logback in the driver should be loaded

    whats the make and model of your card????

    I had the same error on my Acer when trying to install the NVIDIA drivers. However, for me, i just had forgotten to make:

    Code:
    prepare-kernel-sources
    cd /usr/src/linux
    cp -rf include/generated/* include/linux/

    it's a nvidia gtx280, i've killed gdm, installed the driver from nvidia,restarted gdm,set resolution (and saved to xorg), rebooted....then the res become 640x800 instead of my 1024x768.

    Hi,
    Here is the best solution for you ( tested and running on HP G70, Gforce 9200M , Backtrack 5 Gnome 32bit).

    Open terminal and paste: add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates
    *** The system will ask you to if you want to install " add " say Y.
    Make sure the ppa is installed, re-paste the above command if necessary.

    Again in the terminal : apt-get update && apt-get install nvidia-current nvidia-current-modaliases nvidia-settings

    *** Reboot

    Again in the terminal paste : nvidia-xconfig

    *** Reboot again and you're good to go.

    Hope this helps.
    GD

    Ps: you might want to fix the grub, do it this way; nano /etc/default/grub
    Scroll down to : #GRUB_GFXMODE=640×480
    Uncomment # ( take # off the script. like this : GRUB_GFXMODE=640×480)
    Set you screen resolution according to your screen, mine is 1440x900 !
    Now hit : CTRL+o to overwrite >>Enter, CTRL + x to save and exit.
    Now in terminal : update-grub

    Good luck.
