Hardware :: Using Geforce 6150 Nforce 430 And NVidia-drivers 196.*?
Jul 20, 2010
I used the videocard Geforce 6150 nforce 430 (NV4C) without problems untill the upgrade to kernel > 2.6.32 and nvidia-drivers > 190.*. After the upgrade I can use only nv and vesa in the Gentoo x86_64 and in the Fedora 13 x86_64. When I try to install Geforce 8800 GT everything becomes good with free nvidia-drivers and with proprietary ones in both distributions. use this videocard with the kernel 2.6.33(34)* and nvidia-drivers 196.* ?
This is to request the communities assistance with the following: As the title suggests, I am attempting to install 10.04.2 LTS on a PC equipped with an ASUS M2NPV-VM mobo and integral NVidia GeForce 6150 chipset/card and AMD dual processors.
Result: While the CD with the installation software loads, the splash screen comes up distorted and is displayed as several black and white horizontal bars. I have tried this with low end monitors with a VGA input with the same results. It appears to me as if though the video driver on the installation CD is not suitable for the mobo's chipset, but I may be wrong.
I first started having problems on 10.10 a few days ago. Just boots to a command prompt. After troubleshooting, I found when I remove xorg.conf gnome starts up. Under System>Preferences>Monitors shows my correct Monitor model and resolution.
The resolution displays properly, 1680x1050, but without Nvidia and Graphic acceleration, I can't run my Compiz effects or XBMC. I'm having the exact same issues with 11.04. I ran nvidia-xconfig as root to get an auto gen xorg.conf. No change. GeForce 6150SE nForce 430 integrated graphics card
I am just getting into fedora and have installed it on an EMachine ET 1810. According to my SMOLT info, I have the above Video card. (my smolt info is in my signature). I had installed a couple of games that require 3d drivers in order for the game to play! but I can't find any.
I have an ASUS P5N7A-VM motherboard and was using Optical out for sound without issues running OpenSuse 11.2. I then got rid of my receiver and wanted to just use HDMI sound. I couldn't get it to work so I upgraded to OpenSuse 11.3. I simply went to the Sound control panel applet and changed it to Internal Audio Digital Stereo (HDMI). I can not get any sound from it on OpenSuse 11.3 either. I have ran sound tests from the command line "speaker-test -Dplug:front -c2 -l5 -twav" which all run without errors, but nothing comes out of the speakers. I have ran the suggestion of one post "alsa-info.sh" and here are my results:

Initially I was using my onboard 6150, but I bought the 9600 and used it for a week. The fan was too noisy, so I decided to switch back, but now when gdm is started the screen goes black, the LED on my monitor turns orange. First I tried switching to a virtual terminal, which didn't work.
I did a hard reboot and popped in a rescue disk. When I tried mounting my root file system to look at look at the log files, at least /bin and /lib became inaccessible. Finally I booted into the live cd I'm running now.
Recently I switched my kernel (to 2.6.32-5) via apt, with some irregularities, but the problem existed before I switched so I doubt that's the problem.
note: I have a working xserver now, so there shouldn't be anything wrong with the graphics chip itself.
I was following this guide to install my nvidia drivers...[URL] but when I got to the step about checking to see if my card is supported I'm to check here...[URL] I don't see my card anywhere in this list So I kept reading and found this posting ... [URL] and it says that it is support under the geforce 200 ... The last time that I installed this driver my X session quit working ... I was able to ssh back into the laptop and undo the driver install so now i'm a little gun shy about trying it again...
I want to install the proper drivers for my system .the drivers are here: [URL] and come in a .run format (archive format I guess?) Anyway. If someone has done this with these drivers or other nvidia drivers and has some advice. Please, I'd really rather NOT end up screwing up my system or end up accomplishing nothing at all because I did it wrong.
I am having a challenge to install drivers on this machine with the OS and graphics card stated in the subject. To date I have tried different ways and they are broken in the steps or in the results I get on my machine. The how-to written by ajohnw Installing an nvidia driver - easiest I have found to date. results in a file or directory not found when I try to execute
The article SDB:NVIDIA the hard way results in the following error (copied from the error log):
ERROR: The kernel header file '/usr/src/linux/include/linux/version.h' does not exist.The most likely reason for this is that the kernel source files in '/usr/src/linux' have not been configured.
Researching how to resolve that error and I can't find anything relevant to openSUSE 11, closest version being openSUSE 9.Lastly, I've tried this SDB:NVIDIA drivers and for some reason it does not generate the xorg.conf file. At least that's what I am concluding. I go through the steps, reboot the system and boot only to a command prompt. Navigating to /etc/X11/ there is no xorg.conf and I have to copy xorg.conf.install to xorg.conf to get back into the Desktop.
What are the best drivers for Nvidia GeForce 8800 GTS. I'm not 100% sure, but I heard the newest drivers have buggs and aren't 100% compatible with 10.10. I was wondering what the best version of Nvidia drivers would be to install on 10.10? apt-get install?
I just installed a fresh copy of unbuntu 10.04 and downloaded the lastest drivers for my video card but when double click the file, i get a message that says "could not open file/home/desktop name/download/n...nux-86-96.43.16-pkg1.run."Anyone know why this is happening? A friend told me to try to run them in terminal so when i opened the drivers with terminal I get a message saying "error: nvida-installer must be run as root"
I attempted to install restricted drivers using jockey-gtk, was told to reboot and drivers would take effect. Rebooted and got no graphics, after some finagling I was able to delete xorg.conf and I now have horrific looking graphics. Defaulted to current version or 195 (which is also the only option I see in the jockey tool, however in synaptic/apt I see I can install other versions.
I installed Nvidia xorg drivers (not knowing it didn't support my card) and messed up my video setup. When I rebooted it wanted me to restore to default, so I did. Now that I have, I can do stuff, but I am trying to run some games in W.I.N.E. and it just won't run. I can't activate desktop-effects either. And to be honest, I can't find any information on the NVIDIA GeForce 8200M, I can only find info and support for 8200 and the 8200M G. otherwise I'll just have to reinstall.... And I just installed 10.04 yesterday.
I'm installing 10.10 on a desktop with Nvidia 6150 that needs nomodeset on boot or i get the blank screen upon boot. I had to force the live CD to nomodeset when booting from the CD. I was finally able to install, but upon the first boot from the hard drive I'm getting the blank screen again. How do I boot with nomodeset and get to my installed ubuntu. Once I get there i can edit my grub settings.
I'm running Ubuntu 10.10 on my brother's computer. He has his sound system connected via the 3.5MM audio connector, but he also has an optical port on the back of the computer we have yet to try (he has cable and all though) but I doubt that will work versus the 3.5MM audio connector. His ethernet also doesn't work, he doesn't need it as he has a Linksys wireless PCI card and that works as of right now.
I also am not sure about his current graphics driver, in Windows XP he could have his native screen resolution which was either 1920x1080 or 1920x1200, I'm not at his place right now so I can't find that out. On Ubuntu he can only go to like 1400x1050 I believe, which isn't nice on his 23" monitor.
I would like to build up a multi boot system with 11.3 on ASUS M2N32 WS motherboard inclusive NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI RAID controller and Marwell 88SE614xSATA connectors.The problem is that if I built up the RAID-1 arrays (2x500, 2x1000) it cannot be seen from Suse install. As far as I investigated the nForce driver is in 11.3, but in this case why the installation hangs (no reset button, only power off). Sorry I cannot provide you a log, becuase the installation procedure goes to the restart, the system restarts, and Grube says error 15 or 21.
I own an ASUS N61JV-X2 notebook PC that has an Intel HD IGP, nVIDIA GeForce GT 325M GPU, and nVIDIA Optimus technology. I am running OpenSUSE 11.4 64 bit with GNOME. I used to be a former Ubuntu user. I used Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat 64 bit. In Ubuntu, it was not recommended that I install the proprietary nVIDIA binary drivers because it would cause me to log into a TTY console upon reboot.
nVIDIA states that they have no plans to support Optimus technology in Linux at any time. Would it be recommended that I install the proprietary nVIDIA binary drivers in OpenSUSE 11.4 64 bit with GNOME? Will I get the same problem as in Ubuntu? How do I do this?
I am trying for Redhat certification on RHEL 5.4. When i tried to install it on my Acer laptop with NVIDIA GEFORCE GO 7600, I was only able to install it in CUI mode and no GUI. From NVIDIA website I tried both the newest and oldest version they have for Linux, which is with .run extension. I tried installing it using sh <drivername.run> and it is starting the wizard, but exiting abruptly, with a kernel error.
How to work around on this issue? Any generic driver that would work for this display adaptor? whether version 5.5 would work with this card?
I am thinking of buying a Lenovo IdeaPad Z360, it has a GeForce G 310M.
I can't find much info on Linux support but an Ubuntu thread seems to suggest it isn't good. Can someone confirm that this card works with the latest nVidia drivers on Linux (Arch in particular)? It'd be even better if you had the Ideapad Z360 and could report on any other hardware problems I might have?
NVidia seems to say they have support (listed without the G however), but I've heard conflicting reports and so would like to check.
EDIT: I also found these:
Does the Z360 have optimus and the Z560 not so? I can't detect that either of them have it but occasionaly, someone says that they do. Can anyone confirm this? I thought the only real difference was the screen size.
I am trying to build a linux box from an old Dell Optiplex GX240 that I got for free. I have gone out and bought a Sparkle Nvidia GsForce 8400 GS PCI video card for it but am having trouble getting it installed properly. It seems that the card is not recognized by the computer. The command lspci shows no signs of the new video card. I have installed the lastest Nvidia driver (huge PITA) but as expected this did not change the fact that the computer cannot see the new card. The card is rated for 350W and I have a 500W power supply so I should be good there. I have also changed the BIOS settings to auto detect the video card instead of just the stock one. Is my card simply incompatible with my motherboard or are there ways to get this card to work?
I purchased a new computer and I am trying to boot up gparted to partition the HD for installing my Linux Distros, but it gives the famous error Quote:
input signal out of range. So I tried booting up some other live cd's, some give the same error as above and some tell me that the resolution or refresh rate in wrong. Of course using a live cd I have no control over that. I also tried three different monitors that have run Linux just fine on other computers.
My only thought that I could come up with is the NVIDIA Geforce 7050 graphics is not compatible with Linux. Can anyone confirm this ? Or is there something else I can try ?
just installed slackware 13.37... i did a bit of configuration by myself but im having trouble making my graphics card running correctly under X.I installed the latest drivers correctly from the nvidia website.
Built a custom pc using a Gigabyte mobo and amd processor. Mobo has onboard video. Ubuntu Maverick installs fine using on board video but when I put in the Nvidia Geforce GT 240 I get either no video or scrambled video. I've tried disabling the on board video and still no luck. I've also tried to install nvidia drivers first, and will get it to work but video is not crisp and will not show all of the screen.
i wanna learn so much of it as much as I do in Windows System. I have downloaded the video driver but when I installed it in Terminal some error occured after i press the enter key..
You appear to be running an X server; please exit X before installing. For further details, please see the section INSTALLING THE NVIDIA DRIVER in the README available on the Linux driver download page at [URL].. is someone know how to solve this issue?
I recently bought a sony vaio laptop, with nVidia GeForce 310M device.
I am new, and not very good with ubuntu. I downloaded a driver version 185, and installed, after installing which, I could not get any display at all. After trying to repair, in vain, I had to reinnstall the whole system.
I really need the correct drivers. I can see a version 190.42 of nvidia drivers, but that doesnt list my device model number, and so im not sure, whether this should work. Someone, also please tell me how do I repair, if I mess while trying this driver out?
