So was running an Onboard nvidia 8series using the nvidia-driver, Got a new GT218 (gforce 210) and poped it in. restart and it loads up and drops me to a prompt. I reemerged xorg-drivers, Nvidia-drivers, ran nvidia-xconfig and still drops me to a prompt. I swap the plug back to the onboard and everything starts up fine.

startx says no screens found. adding the BusID option to xorg.conf does nothing. lspci shows my card is installed. nvidia-settings in kde shows only my onboard card.

what the crap??

we need outputs dude...

start with the following:

  1. lspci
  2. lspci -k
  3. dmesg
  4. /var/log/Xorg.0.log
  5. emerge --info Nvidia-drivers
  6. /etc/X/xorg.conf if exists
