If you mean the nvidia driver from the ports, then my 128Mb card detects 
just fine.  If you mean the nv driver which comes with xorg, then try 
the nvidia driver from ports.

If it is the nvidia driver then you could try the nvidia forum here:


And I'm sure that more detail would help, like *which* nvidia card.  At 
least then there would be some basis for comparison with others.
