    People work for free on this internet forum. I think you should go for paid support if you want faster response times.

    Getting an older version of the nVidia driver from the nVidia homepage might be the answer to your problem here. Try with nVidia driver 173.14.22 which matches the kernel module.

    Also, I could not see anything in your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file when I look at your screen dump, not so good.

    Lucid does not use xorg.conf as I understand it

    Hmm.. that is probably true, but he has told us that he has installed a prop. nvidia graphics driver and that driver should create a new xorg.conf file and if it's not there, there's a problem!

    Re: ubuntu 10.04 wont boot in graphical mode

    thanks everybody, my problem seems to have been solved.... i did 2 things and don't know what worked exactly: i installed the nvidia driver with:

    #sh NVIDIAdriver.run -K

    but at the boot manager, i input a startup command:

    gdm start


    my system seems to be "working" now even though i have some other issues but at least it's working. thanks everyone.
