Output of lspci | grep -i vga

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation NV18GL [Quadro NVS 280 SD] (rev a2)

I have tried nvidia-glx-96 and 71 but nothing works not even desktop effects nothing!! They use to work fine in 8.04 with nvidia-glx. Please could someone tell me a package which I can install.

What kennel are you running? I had the same problem with a GeForce 8500 GT but found the upgrade did not install the 2.6.27-7-generic kernel. Once that had been installed all was fine

Yes I am using 2.6.27-7-generic kernel. (8.10)
