Booting not successful (have to try 3,4,5 times)

I have had lots of problems with dual boot. Hardly never making success with first boot. I have to try 3,4,5 even 6 times until reach the X. Some kernels make it better (hardly never succesful boot with first try). This seems to be one of the worst.

Boot hangs on starting atd. Xorg.conf:

# Xorg configuration created by livna-config-display

Section "Files"
ModulePath "/usr/lib/xorg/modules/extensions/nvidia"
ModulePath "/usr/lib/xorg/modules"

Section "ServerFlags"
Option "AIGLX" "on"

Section "Device"
Identifier "Videocard0"
Driver "nvidia"

Section "Extensions"
Option "Composite" "Enable"

I have to use nvidia proprietary driver. With nv the screen will freezy quite soon. How to solve this continuing boot problem?

I'd suggest looking here for info on how to install NVidia drivers. Leighs method has worked extremely well.

Re: Booting not successful (have to try 3,4,5 times)

I've installed nvidia it works. Problem is that with some kernels i have to do several boots until reach the desktop. However if i delete Xorg.conf-file and boot the machine i'll manage to boot succesfully in my first try. There must be something with that Xorg.conf or why do i have to try several times to make successful booting?
