I was having issues with the new kernel so I decided to try installing Nvidia-current instead of Nvidia 173.

Now my video doesnt really work, it is stuck at some awful resolution and 8-12 bit colour, display manager doesnt detect anything.
Changing anything in display manager does nothing except i can change the module used.
Switching back to 173 doesnt help, nor does using neauvou drivers.

Help, I have to boot into windows until this is solved Sad... good old reliable windows Tongue

I have a Nvidia 7600GT AGP. The Nvidia current drivers do work which i find odd because 173 was the last set of drivers to support AGP (I cant find it but I saw a release from Nvidia to that extent).

When I changed the display it would say i needed to restart X, which I assumed meant X.org which meant i just needed to log out... which was not correct.

However, I switched back to neauvou as my internet is super slow while using the nvidia current...very strange. Has anyone heard of this. I tested it a few times (many reboots) and across browsers. My internet is just faster with neauvou now :S
Like 100x faster.

Help?

On a side note, when I first restarted with nvidia current the graphics were horrible, then i went to configure the display and it crashed my computer, when it rebooted everything looked great...wierd.
This crash always happens when switch away from nvidia current or nvidia 173.

I have a Nvidia 7600GT AGP.
have a look here.

In Package Manager I read for nvidia173
Quote
NVIDIA drivers for GeForce 5 series GPUs
and for nvidia-current
Quote
NVIDIA drivers for GeForce 6xxx and newer GPUs
So don't use nvidia173.

OK point taken but that still doesnt solve this internet issue. It doesnt even make sense that nvidia drivers would affect my internet but it seems to be so... definitely verified

I checked with ubuntuforums and see this popping up a lot there too with no solutions. :S
