No you simply wrong, I came in here with a real problem and if there was
a lack of communication it was my fault ,my fault
being that I didn't understand what was said or and my lack of knowledge
of the unabridged language of Linux but I have to assume that
a lot of people come in here with the same lack of linuxetiquette. If my
reception here was a consistent example, They could be treated better.
Lord no. Everyone new gets bruised a bit ...so they learn. We're pretty much equal opportunity here with regards to handing out "tough love".

It then helps ~greatly~ if you report what you tried from our suggestions and the result. I would ask a third time, if you edited xorg.conf as mentioned and logged out and back in, ... but I recently had cardiovascular surgery and don't want to pop a blood vessel and die or go blind and/or insane.
So, get a thick skin and we'll get you into great shape in no time. If we didn't "love you" we wouldn't bother. It's not like anyone gets paid, so you'll get as many "curmudgeons" as you will "sweethearts". Come to think of it, it's pretty much like that "out there". :)
So, assuming that everything tossed at you didn't work, (and since you didn't TELL us, we don't know) then we must press you into going into your bios setup at boot.
I have no clue what key combination invokes that on your machine, but there should be some dialog at the very start of the boot that tells you how. Usually it'll be hitting the "del" key or F1 or something.
Whatever... get yourself into it (read the manual as a last resort).
Look around until you find something like video chipset support or on-board video support. If it's turned on, turn it off. Save that configuration and reboot. The boot process will not give an IRQ to the onboard video and your nvidia card will claim it's place. Hopefully you will have video, after a flicker or two, and boot into a nice login screen. You may still have a few issues, but it will be with the nVidia card setup and not your onboard ATI chipset.
LET US KNOW... Come to think of it, your manual should tell you how to add a video card and exactly what to do. Ric
