    The link you posted has several different methods for installing nvidia drivers. Which one did you use?

    Could you post the results of the following commands?

    Code:
    lsmod | grep nvidia
    hwinfo --gfxcard

    Hi
    But have you plugged in the external power connector onto the 8600
    card? Note, I am using one here, and have the power connected.

    Maybe it's because the kernel you get from the one click method is still 2.6.31.5_0.1-8.1 while you're running 2.6.31.12-0.1.1.

    Can you download the sh.run file from the nvidia site and build the module yourself (sometimes referred to as the hard way)?

    Here's a link:

    ftp://download.nvidia.com/XFree86/Linux-x86_64/

    You might also try running Yast from failsafe mode and reinstalling or removing it there. But the manual install method is not difficult to do. Just do it from the console login.
