    Ive tried xconf, xorgconfig, booting with nvidia drivers, deleting xconf with boot (which actually got me the furthest, other than the nvidia drivers). If I boot straight with xconf, it gives me a half black screen, half green/white screen and I dont get the bt logon screen at all. Running xorgconfig doesnt help at all. I can get the bt logon screen when I boot with the nvidia drivers, but I get some error when I try to startx. If I delete xconf from booting, I get the logon screen, but then it does the half black, half green/white screen.

    To me, it seems like I have to have the nvidia drivers to boot, but it errors out. I will take some pictures later today of each result.

    Search for my post on the same subject, follow my steps, and if you get any errors, post the output of dmesg and glxinfo as well as your xorg.conf
