I'm trying to install Ubuntu Hardy from the DVD. When I try to enable desktop effects it says it can't. If I click on restricted hardware the nvidia_new driver is ticked but not enabled. If I enable it and restart it's disabled again.

Any ideas?

Your card might not support it. What card do you have?

How do I find out what card? It was working fine with Gutsy ...

to find your card type this in a terminal:

lspci | grep VGA
