Vid. card on Ubuntu problem

here is what happened.
when you installed ubuntu it wrote the configuration files needed to properly load based on the card and drivers at the time of the install. so if you installed the drivers and the card after the install, it doesn't pick up on the different settings (i.e. new card)
When I had to repalce my MOBO I had to reinstall my Ubuntu distro because Ubuntu no longer recognized my MOBO. The different settings on it didn't correspond with the config files.
hope this helps

does the file you downloaded execute when you try to run it? ubuntu supports files with the extension .run, it should launch a graphical install to help you through the process. and the readme file should tell you about where to go from there.

i reinstalled ubuntu and the updates,then all the gcc's&linux-headers 2.6.10-5-386 (from synaptic pkg. man.). then i downloaded and installed Nvidia Linux AI32 drivers. then rebooted computer with moniter plugged into card and PCI for primary display device(from BIOS), at "starting hotplug subsystem" it froze.

sorry its taken so long to get back to you.
What brand and kind (laptop or desktop) of computer is this that you are using this on?
also could you download everest home edition, it's free, from http://www.lavalys.com/ adn give me the specs on your motherboard. (i.e. manufacturer, chipset, etc...)
I will be able to find more specific information from what you tell me.
