View Full Version : [ubuntu] Nvidia 7600gs issue

December 31st, 2010, 12:07 PM
Hy to all firstly and a happy new year.

Ill keep it simple: after installing ubuntu and graphic card drives(nvidia 7600GS) the enviroment looks very funny, colorfull and stuff.. like a 4bit color range.
It started looking like this about a week ago(up to date Ubuntu and Drives) so i decided ti try and install windows XP. Done that, all started as normal with low resolution and 4bit colours; but after installing the drives, instead of nice looking details i get the "No signal" message from my monitor each time i try to boot the OS.
Now i have ubuntu installed but with no graphic card drives. If i install them it gets wild again and if I keep it like this i have a great amount of issues in watching a film, using a render or so..

Any ideas of what's wrong.....i suppose it's the graphic card itself

which ubuntu release are you talking about ? is it a fresh install ?

remove xorg.conf:

sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf

then reboot

Sorry for the long delay, i was on a trip. I did the command to remove xorg.conf and it seems it removed my graphic card drivers because the image has an offset to the right and i can't use programs or games that require 3D acceleration. Also the image looks normal now.
