View Full Version : [ubuntu] Unable to boot with Nvidia FX 5200

I am out of ideas, and the fourm posts regarding this topic have lead me nowhere.

Whenever I plug in my Nvidia fx 5200 card, ubuntu fails to boot. IT gets about 1/10th of the way through its loading bar and stops. I have tried envyng, I have tried manually installing the driver, nothing is working. I can't even boot into recovery mode.

I am using Ubuntu 9.04. If anyone has been successful in installing this card, your methods would be much appreciated. I am fairly new to ubuntu, so if any terminal use is required, please be specific with commands.

It turned out to have been a bad card. Swapped it today and was able to boot with the new one.
