    From a console, type su -c lspci and it will asl for the root password. then it will give you some output.

    Same video card as my laptop Or almost the same.

    You have to install the Nvidia driver, as it says on this thread:;threadid=6960

    Then, edit your /etc/X11/XF86Config file as this one, or just copy and ue this one:
