    it won't show in 'graphics' you need to use the nVidia tool 'nVidia X Server Settings'

    Question Re: About the drivers(nvidia)

    Umm if that so this is the information given by nvidia x server settings :

    Operating system : Linux x86
    NVIDIA Driver Version : 295.40

    GPU: GeForce 7300 LE

    Memory: 512 MB
    Memory Interface: 64-bit (someone please explain this)

    Now my question is , are the drivers correctly installed ? If so why i play Neverwinter nights in such low fps ?
    EDIT: Please dont hate me , its fixed now , i dont even know...but its fixed , thanks for the anwer HilmTye , now im experiencing hungs up but i think that has something to do with my hardware , it might be broken...

    In a terminal run:

    Code:
     lspci -v
    This will list all of your devices and modules(drivers) for each device.

    Exclamation Re: About the drivers(nvidia)

    This is what I got:

    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation G72 [GeForce 7300 LE] (rev a1) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
    Subsystem: XFX Pine Group Inc. Device 2208
    Flags: bus master, fast devsel, latency 0, IRQ 19
    Memory at ce000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16M]
    Memory at d0000000 (64-bit, prefetchable) [size=256M]
    Memory at cd000000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=16M]
    [virtual] Expansion ROM at ccfe0000 [disabled] [size=128K]
    Capabilities: <access denied>
    Kernel driver in use: nvidia
    Kernel modules: nvidia_current, nvidia_current_updates, nouveau, nvidiafb

    Obviously beside other things

    EDIT : Freezings/Hangs Up are getting annoying by now , I need help here , My comp even freeze for using firefox....

    P.S.: I found out I have the xserver-xorg-video-nouveau ... Is this a driver ? Is this the one im supposed to have installeD?

    P.S2: I think this only happens when the current version of the drivers is activated
