Can you give the output of :

sudo lshw -C display; lsb_release -a; uname -a; dpkg -l | grep nvidia

Thanks

I have a dual boot. I booted into 10.02 and loaded all the nvdia drivers
and did an apt-get install nvidia current updates.

There is no Nvidia GPU in your system.

I'd also add that Lucid desktop is EOL in April 2013. After this there will be zero support and zero updates so I suggest you upgrade soon.

I do not understand what you mean _There is no Nvidia GPU in your system. _

I have a dual boot 10.04 /12.10 I did the comand on the 10.04 system shopuld I do it on the 12.10 because both
are having the same problem.

What should I do?

Read your own output? We can see an Intel video chip but no Nvidia.

When you upgraded to 12.10, did you upgrade to 12.04 first?

I am not an an engineer. If I don't have a nvidia chip but an intel what
should I do to get the driver..please advise!!!!

Intel GPUs already have the driver as part of the OS. You don't need any additional drivers. Why are you installing nvidia video drivers when you do not own an Nvidia video card....?

The system was so hosed I flattened it and reinstalled 10.04 which I
like alot better. Thank You.

You can close it out.

Lucid is EOL in April 2013. I recommend a clean install of 12.04

Can you help with this problem?
