    Secondly, try removing or renaming xorg.conf before running nvidia-xconfig
    I'm using nVidia G-Force FX5200 128 mb.

    I've tried that, nothing changes. I installed back 173 along with nvidia-current thinking that maybe 173 will serve as transitional, but still nothing changes.

    Re: NVidia-settings crashes.

    Alright. This is what happens. When I remove only xserver-xorg-video-nouveau, delete xorg.conf and restart the system, my resolution is back to normal. I then run sudo nvidia-config, again I restart and the following message comes up:

    The following error was encountered. You may need to update your configuration to solve this.
    (EE) NVIDIA: Failed to load the NVIDIA kernel module.
    Please check your
    (EE) NVIDIA: system's kernel log for additional error messages.
    (EE) Failed to load module “nvidia” (module-specific error, 0)
    (EE) No drivers available.
    EDIT: This time I tried only to run in low graphics mode, previosly restarting X from this point didn't help, and neither did reconfiguring graphical settings.

    Nvidia-settings still won't open, it again says that I should run nvidia-config and restart X.

    I also checked in System > Administration > Hardware drivers, it says that nvidia-current is activated but not currently in use. But I can't get it in use, because of this problem.

    Re: NVidia-settings crashes.

    Your videocard is no longer supported by nvidia-current, only by 173 legacy drivers. Jockey should have proposed that one but I remember an issue with the 173 drivers not installing on top of nouveau, something I think was only fixed by nvidia recently, I dont know if that made its way to the ubuntu repo's yet, but probably why it wasnt proposed.

    I would purge the drivers you have now and nvidia-settings. Then grab the latest from nvidia website here:
    http://www.nvidia.co.uk/object/linux...driver-uk.html

    (thats for AMD64 for 32 bit browse to the appropriate download page). Make sure you right click the installer and select "save as". Make the file executable and run it in a terminal.

    Re: NVidia-settings crashes.

    Thank you very much for your replies.

    I did all of this and it said to me that it is installed. However, it isn't shown in System > Administration > Hardware drivers [I presume because nvidia-common isn't installed] and their is no nvidia-settings. Can I install nvidia-settings freely now from ubuntu repositories, and can I do that for nvidia-common also? Nvidia setting are of course more important.

    Re: NVidia-settings crashes.

    Sorry to bring back an old thread, but I'm having the same exact problem as The SixthPandava. I'm using the nvidia drivers 173.14.31 with an nvidia geforce fx 5200 128mb. whenever changing any settings under the 'GPU 0' tab, I get;

    Code:
    The program 'nvidia-settings' received an X Window System error.
    This probably reflects a bug in the program.
    The error was 'BadValue (integer parameter out of range for operation)'.
      (Details: serial 371 error_code 2 request_code 140 minor_code 19)
      (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;
       that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.
       To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line
       option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful
       backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)
    Tried everything I could find, nothing fixes it. I'm trying to fix my tv output overscan.

    Re: NVidia-settings crashes.

    Also, xorg.conf is as follows;

    Code:
    # nvidia-settings: X configuration file generated by nvidia-settings
    # nvidia-settings:  version 1.0  (buildd@palmer)  Fri Apr  9 10:35:18 UTC 2010
    
    # nvidia-xconfig: X configuration file generated by nvidia-xconfig
    # nvidia-xconfig:  version 1.0  (buildmeister@builder75)  Sun Jul 17 22:46:17 PDT 2011
