I can't tell you if you really need a new driver or not but I have been
having some problems myself. This is how I solved it:
- my NVdriver is loaded as a module.
- lsmod showed that after I updated my pcmcia-cs package the
NVdriver was no longer loaded (no idea)
- I may have been able to just insmod NVdriver to get it to
work; however, I didn't realize it at the time so I reinstalled
INSTALL NVDRIVER based on:
apt-get install nvidia-glx-src
apt-get install nvidia-kernel-src
(This site also recommends installing nvidia-glx but I can't "find" the
package. There's a reference to it in dpkg but it's no longer found. It
doesn't /seem/ to matter...)
That's it. You should now be able to startx again.
Unfortunately I don't understand how to load the module automatically each
time I restart my computer. Rumour has it you can do so by editing
/etc/modules (note do not touch /etc/modules.conf)
Hope that helps.
