I upgraded to Ubuntu 10.10, but the GUI interface fails to start when the computer boots. Instead I get a command line prompt, when I log in and type 'startx' I get the following (copied from the Xorg log):

[ 269.667] (WW) Falling back to old probe method for v4l
[ 269.667] (--) NV: Found NVIDIA GeForce Go 7900 GTX at 01@00:00:0

for help.

Is there a way to fix this?
