i just reinstalled ubuntu to a new dedicated dard drive and now my nvidia xserver gives me this meesage:
You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver. Please edit your X configuration file (just run `nvidia-xconfig` as root), and restart the X server.

what does this mean?

btw, it worked fine yesterday on a different partition so i know it can work.

That message generally means that you do not have the restricted driver installed. If you do have it installed then you need to enable it by editing your /etc/X11/xorg.conf file.

Kind regards,

OK, here it is:
# xorg.conf (X.Org X Window System server configuration file)
#
# This file was generated by dexconf, the Debian X Configuration tool, using
# values from the debconf database.
#
# Edit this file with caution, and see the xorg.conf manual page.
# (Type "man xorg.conf" at the shell prompt.)
#
# This file is automatically updated on xserver-xorg package upgrades *only*
# if it has not been modified since the last upgrade of the xserver-xorg
# package.
#
# Note that some configuration settings that could be done previously
# in this file, now are automatically configured by the server and settings
# here are ignored.
#
# If you have edited this file but would like it to be automatically updated
# again, run the following command:
# sudo dpkg-reconfigure -phigh xserver-xorg

What should I change?
