I have a Ubuntu 9.04 install with kernel 2.6.30-rc7. I can't seem to get it to display a normal screen. Just a black login screen. Is my GDM or X.org trashed. X.org said there was no device driver line or some thing like that. I just want to get this computer working. XP works fine on this computer.
I have an nVidia GeForce 8800GTS 320 MB. I've tried to fix the X.org by creating new ones but it doesn't work. I installed it through a PPA. I used Michael Marley's PPA.
I have the 185.18.04 or something like that. I might also have 185.18.14

I've got the same problem with a Lenovo T61 and NV140 Quadro GPU. The X-server starts, just the screen remains black, it looks like the display gets turned off.
190 BETA works.
