After an unusually long road to installation, I'm ready to use Ubuntu. But my XFX 8800GT doesn't seem to play nice with Hardy.
No matter how I install the nVidia driver - through EnvyNG, or as a direct download from the website - I get a blacked out screen (no input) whenever Ubuntu boots into the GDM. Therefore, I know it's probably an xserver (xorg.conf) issue vs. a driver issue. But I just can't figure it out.
Can anyone help? Here are my system specs:
2 x 2GB Corsair DDR2 RAM
Maxtor 250GB HDD (has dual-boot Vista Ultimate and Ubuntu)
Seagate 750GB HDD (file storage)
Gigabyte motherboard (nForce 750a SLI chipset)
AMD Athlon 64 x2 5600+
Zalman CPU Cooler
And (although I'm not sure if this is relevant) I have a Gateway XHD3000 30" monitor (2560x1600).
