What exactly are you installing - kmod-nvidia or akmod-nvidia, and

version of Fedora? Also, how are you installing, and do you already

have the rpmfusion repo enabled? Also, you should be posting to the

mailing list since someone else might know something I don't. I only

have experience using akmod-nvidia.

P.S. I just discovered that what I actually have - a desktop
6150SE -

isn't exactly the same as a Go 6150. But the instructions are

the same for both, so it shouldn't matter.

By the looks of your video card it is a older model and the Nvidia
proprietary 173 drivers are the ones you want.
I do it through ADD/remove software.
Make sure you have RPM fusion repos installed the search NVIDIA
Select the latest Driver 173 and the kernel mod FOR THE KERNEL YOU
Once installed do not reboot and add the this after quiet on the
kernel lines of GRUB.CONFIG. rdblacklist=nouveau

Save the grub.config and reboot
