Well, it seems that wasn't the perfect "fix." I've just noticed I'm
getting strange artifacts. For example, on the on the top left of
each window the small icon and push pin are severely scrambled. Some
icons on the panel are also scrambled beyond recognition. Those
issues wouldn't be too bad, but I'm also getting random "blocks"
showing up when a new window/application is opened. I can get rid of
those by opening and closing a window over them, but that isn't a good
solution. I tried running nvidia-xconfig again just to see, and I get
dumped to a login prompt with the xorg.conf file in place. I ran the
hardware drivers app and it claims I'm running the correct Nvidia
I'm certainly no expert at this stuff, but I'm wondering if I'm really
running the nvidia drive with the most current kernel.

Alan made a suggestion about dkms in some earlier thread. It may be
good to check if the nvidia module is also set up in your new kernel
by "dkms status". For example in my system, this appears..

pop@timon:~$ dkms status
nvidia-current, 260.19.06, 2.6.35-22-generic, x86_64: installed
nvidia-current, 260.19.06, 2.6.35-23-generic, x86_64: installed

If the module does not appear in your new kernel, set it up then. But
sorry, since I do not have any problem and hence not done this, I am
unable to help further, but "man dkms" may help. Of course, please let
us know how you do it so we can learn from you.

If it is not any problem with dkms, it may help to "sudo
update-initramfs" and see if this helps.

Finally, if nothing works, remove the new kernel "sudo apt-get remove
--purge 2.6.32-28-* when you boot up to the old kernel 2.6.32-27 and
then update to new kernel one more time.

You should know what NVidia chip set you have, so go to

-- *http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us*
and answer the questions, this should at least tell you what package you
need to have downloaded and installed
whether from the repos or the above URL, if you then go to
'K>Applications> System>NVidia settings and do

what it tells you all should then be OK.
