4 GB ram with 9500m GS video card will not load driver
I have an Asus G1SN laptop with an NVIDIA 9500m GS video card and also 4 GB of ram on the laptop with 512 MB of ram on the video card. After upgrading to 8.10 (64 bit version), the NVIDIA driver will not load but Ubuntu will load in low graphics mode (i.e. 2D).
In 8.04 I had to recompile the kernal so that it would allow the NVIDIA driver to load correctly. With this version when I try to load the NVIDIA driver (version 173 or 177) and reboot the system comes back up and says that the configuration cannot be recognized.
Currently I cannot recompile the kernal to use the video driver as the packages are not yet available for the new version. Right now not having the 3D capability prevents me from using some of the programs which I have installed on they system.
I have the most recent updates for my system but this does not seem to help with this issue.
