Hey guys. I'm going crazy here, hopefully somebody can give me a hand.
My system is a Lenovo B500 All-In-One, with an Nvidia GTS 250M video card. nv seems to work okay, but I cannot get the desktop to load with the nvidia driver (nvidia-current, from the repository). I've been hacking away at this for a week and a half with no results. Every time I try to boot with the nvidia driver, the splash screen comes up for a second, the screen flashes a couple times between a "static" screen and tty2, then the screen seems to go to a test mode, where it flashes a series of solid colors indefinitely. Looking at /var/log/Xorg.0.log, I see the following:
Every single time for the last week and a half.

Fatal server error:

Stuff I've tried:
* Using the xorg-edgers ppa packages
* The upstream .run file from nvidia
* Setting a custom modeline
* Extracting the EDID information from the Windows installation and calling it in xorg.conf
* Turning off UseEDID altogether
* A bunch of other stuff, honestly it's all starting to blur together now
Versions of Ubuntu I've tried:
* Kubuntu 10.04, 64 and 32 bit
* Ubuntu 10.04, 64 bit
* Kubuntu 9.10, 64 and 32 bit
Attached are the latest iterations of my /var/log/Xorg.0.log and /etc/X11/xorg.conf. If there's anything else I could provide, just ask. Any help would be so very much appreciated. Seriously, this is driving me to drink.
