Default Nvidia GeForce FX5200 problems

Hash: SHA1

I have just spent a couple of hours trying to install the card in the
subject line in my computer which is running Debian Sid.

After changing the BIOS to reflect the new card (PCI) I ended up at a
black screen after GDM ran. Killing GDM (and X) got to to a command line
where I changed xorg.conf to use the Debian Nvidia driver (prior to trying
to install the Nvidia driver). No good. Blank screen again. So I tried
dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg. No good. At one point dpkg-reconfigure told
me I didn't have xserver-xorg installed!! Has anyone else had problems
with this card? The only thing I didn't try was the VESA driver. Needless
to say I am back to Intel video for now.

In addition to those problems, about an eighth of an inch is now missing
from the top of maximized windows on my LG LCD monitor. What have I done?
I have since tried the automatic adjustment on the monitor but it doesn't

Any and all advice is appreciated.
