    Seems the kernel caused nvidia troubles for a few folks.
    I ran Envy to fix it.
    Read the faqs first.

    I know about envy I only thought there's something wrong because the driver was installed in 18 kernel but now it seems not to recognize - load it

    Re: Geforce7 + restricted driver + 2.6.24.19 kernel

    I have an old nvidia card which worked in kernel -18, but stopped after the second kernel -19 update (it still worked after the first update 2.6.24-19.33, but not the second 2.6.24-19.34).

    I reinstalled the following to get it to work again (I wanted to avoid using envy):

    linux-restricted-modules-2.6.24-19-generic (2.6.24.13-19.42)
    linux-restricted-modules-common (2.6.24.13-19.42)
    linux-restricted-modules-generic (2.6.24.19.21)
    nvidia-glx (1:96.43.05+2.6.24.13-19.42)
    nvidia-kernel-common (20051028+1ubuntu8 )
