    Nvidia card issue - (EE) No devices detected

    Hello, I am new to Ubuntu and have been agonizing over this issue for about 8 hours and am about at the end of my rope with this. I have scoured the forums and found many similar issues but none with solutions that work for me. Any help would be GREATLY appreciated!

    I have an old Dell Dimension desktop lying around (P4) that I thought would be great as a "TV computer," i.e. one I could have next to my TV to run Hulu, etc. so I didn't have to hook up my laptop every time. The hard drive was bad so I put in a new one, wiped the drive clean, and installed Ubuntu fresh, in other words, this is a brand spanking new ubuntu install. I immediately ran all the updates so everything should be up to snuff there.

    Now, this PC has integrated graphics and no S-video output, so I bought a Nvidia e-GeForce FX 5200 PCI video card and had this in the machine from the beginning of installation. Thinking it might help me avoid complications down the line, I set this card as the primary graphics device in the motherboard setup prior to installing Ubuntu. However, Ubuntu did not get very far under this setup, locking up early in the process every time. I was only able to install Ubuntu by setting the integrated graphics card as primary. Clouds begin to gather.

    Once Ubuntu was installed I attempted to install the Nvidia drivers from Administration\Hardware Drivers. This seemed to work fine, but upon reboot I get an error: "(EE) No devices detected." It gives me options to troubleshoot, reconfigure graphics, etc. I messed around with this stuff a lot but the only thing that ever gets ubuntu to start up regularly is by restoring the graphics configuration to the default. This uninstalls the Nvidia driver. From what I can tell, without this driver installed, Ubuntu basically ignores this other video card.

    One more wrinkle- when I open the Nvidia X Server program I get an error: "You do not appear to be using the Nvidia X driver. Please edit your X configuration file (just run 'nvidia-xconfig' as root), and restart the X server." I attempted to do this but I don't think I did it right. If following these instructions is the right way to go, how do I edit my X configuration file?

    Please help! After an earlier 5 hour issue with installing a PCI wireless network card I am really fed up and confused!

    Thanks!

    Re: Nvidia card issue - (EE) No devices detected

    What dimension series do you have? Are you running Ubuntu through the onboard video? Is Ubuntu properly loading with the Nvidia card?
    I have a Dimension 2350 with an EVGA e-GeForce FX 5200. I am running off of the NVidia card and NOT the onboard card.
    If the NVidia card is not loading at all (meaning you cannot get any graphics) then it is not an X-server problem, its a motherboard setting problem.

    Re: Nvidia card issue - (EE) No devices detected

    I'm not exactly a linux wizzard either,
    but going on what I come across on the forums, it seems ubuntu doesn't install seamlessly together with the Nvidia drivers. I think I'll go back to Mandriva, there I had the nvidia drivers running via a PLF package... No prob whatsoever.. Now, with the nvidia drivers I just can't get to the logon screen, X just doesn't start or hangs or whatever... Other than that, Ubuntu seems a real good distribution..
