comment CUDA on GeForce 8600GT
Yes, I had already blacklisted nv and nouveau in the blacklist.conf file. And, I had also tried changing the resolution in nvidia-settings, but I was not provided with any resolution higher than 640x480. Later I figured it out myself that the HorizSync and VertRefresh values in xorg.conf weren't matching with those of my monitor. Once I changed them, the resolution problem got fixed. Thanks anyway.

Installed the toolkit and the SDK. The code samples work perfectly, thanks a lot for your help. Now the only problem is the resolution, which does not go above 640x480. Any help regarding that is much appreciated.

Thanks. I followed the steps and installed the devdriver 195.36.15. But after booting, my screen resolution has gone really low, and in nvidia-settings X server display configuration, I can't find any resolution higher than 640x480. And, I have not yet proceeded with the cuda toolkit installation.

comment CUDA on GeForce 8600GT
I'm using 195.36.15 driver and CUDA 3.0. Running nvidia-settings produced "You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver. Please edit your X configuration file (just run nvidia-xconfig as root), and restart the X server." I did just that, but the problem persists. I have also edited my question to add more info on the problem. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks
