Your English isn't bad at all. There are a couple missing modifiers, but
to tell you the truth, my brain filled them in and I didn't notice them at
all until I read that last sentence and went looking! =8^)
If it's xorg/nvidia, it may well show up in your xorg log:
/var/log/Xorg.0.log, most likely. (Note the capital X.)
If it shows up there, it should show up with a code beside it, WW, EE, II,
or something, with a legend at the top telling you what each code means
(II=info, EE=error, not always fatal, WW=warning, there are others). This
log is moved to Xorg.0.log.old and a new one started every time you start
As for the meaning, NVRM, unless NVidia is using it to mean something
else, means Non-Volatile-RAM, usually flash based RAM. This could be the
video card BIOS, or your motherboard BIOS, or perhaps something else
with NVRAM. Beyond that, I don't have much clue. altho once you trace it
to the hardware it's coming from, you might be able to google something on
Hmm... Just did the google here. It DOES appear to be NVidia related.
Heres the (long, due to containing that whole string) link to the search
It shows 9 of the 26 hits, the rest are similar to those 9, it says. Good
