..first try: sda3:~# modinfo nvidia # to see if you have it at all.
modinfo: ERROR: Module nvidia not found. # I don't, I use nouveau,
works surprisingly well for me.

..sda3:~# modprobe -nvr nvidia # test run to see what it would do IRL.
modprobe: FATAL: Module nvidia not found.
sda3:~# modprobe -nvr nouveau # BOO!!! ;o)
modprobe: FATAL: Module nouveau is in use.
sda3:~# modprobe -h # to see more advice on usage. Back to Stefan:

best case, worst case, and just in case.
