I had GTX570 working earlier, new motherboard mde me test the HD Graphics 4000 of Intel CPU. In order to get it working I needed to sudo-apt-get remove nvidia-current The HD4000 proved slow,so I inserted the GTX570, it works with open source driver, no luck making it work with nvidia-curent (or experimental)

I have purged nvidia-* and reinstalled it several times.

andre@Loke:~$ jockey-text --list | grep nvidia
kmod:nvidia_experimental_304 - Experimental NVIDIA binary Xorg driver, kernel module      and VDPAU library (Proprietary, Disabled, Not in use)
kmod:nvidia_experimental_310 - Experimental NVIDIA binary Xorg driver, kernel module      and VDPAU library (Proprietary, Disabled, Not in use)
kmod:nvidia_current - nvidia_current (Proprietary, Enabled, Not in use)
kmod:nvidia_current_updates - NVIDIA binary Xorg driver, kernel module and VDPAU library (Proprietary, Disabled, Not in use)

the nvidia_current installs just fine, the strange problem, and probably a hint is, that nvidia_xconfig , found in /usr/lib/nvidia-current/bin/nvidia-xconfig is not in the "path" - so when I type "nvidia-" and press TAB twice, I see only andre@Loke:~$ nvidia- nvidia-detector nvidia-settings

that's rather strange.

A final clue is my Xorg.0.log:

oops ! - the xorg.0.log - is after I switched to open source drivers. –  user105939 Mar 16 '13 at 11:29
    
During the problem, Xorg.log says: –  user105939 Mar 16 '13 at 11:31
