Why does this happen? The drivers worked but for some reason but now it wont. Reinstalling dosen't fix it as it seems to lock some setting into my card or pc or both and they must be wrong because now none of the nvidia drivers work, nor the one from nvidia.com. They just fail initalization when it tries to enable render acceleration. Its not a hardware issue because it happens with multiple nvidia cards in both my pcs and i have tried many distros they all do the same thing even the supergamer livecd. I can get it to work again randomly sometimes by swaping videocards, or by unplugging my pc from power for aleast a day, or i can install the current driver then another version back and forth until it works but its totally random when it starts to work again no matter which method i use.

Does any one have this problem too. I just would like any insight into this if possible.
