I'm trying to install ubuntu or a PC with a Nvidia 7300 GT video card. I've installed 8.10 and 8.04 with the same results. At first the video would just flicker after install but I reconfigured xserver-xorg and now I have a display. The problem is; after reboot the system goes into "low graphics" mode. If I hit "configure" from that prompt it will allow me to change the driver and boot into the OS. But every time I reboot I end up back in "low graphic" mode.
I searched the forum and found lots of threads where this card is giving people headaches. Should I just take it out and smash it or is there hope for it yet? If I should toss it; what's a good graphics card thats easy to setup, supports dual monitors with DVI, and will basically be used for HD movies and pictures?
