I have the same GPU on my Inspiron E1505.  For my installation, I used the ubuntu-7.10-desktop-i386 image, which I obtained from ubuntu.com.  

vinny at shadowcat:~$ lspci |grep -i nvidia
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation G72M [Quadro NVS 110M/GeForce Go 7300] (rev a1)
vinny at shadowcat:~$ sudo nvidia-installer -i

Welcome to the NVIDIA Software Installer for Unix/Linux

The currently installed driver is: 'NVIDIA Accelerated Graphics Driver for
Linux-x86' (version: 169.12).

This driver version should work... have you tried Envy?

I actually used the package from nVidia's website, although this method is unsupported by Canonical.  (see:https://help.ubuntu.com/community/NvidiaManual)

Will the driver for the NVIDIA 8300 work with the 1505n's video? Here's what came with it:

256MB NVIDIA GeForce Go 7300  TurboCache, for Inspiron      E1505N

You can use the 7.10 image for the 1420n, as it most closely
resembles what's on the 1505n (in fact, it will be identical), just choose the
image according to your video card (Intel or Nvidia). I can't comment for 8.04,
but you can check http://linux.dell.com/wiki/index.php/Ubuntu_8.04
for any future updates.

I posted a couple of time trying to find out if there was
ever going to be an image for 7.10 specifically for the 1505n (one of the
Ubuntu pre-install systems sold by Dell), but got no answer. I'm going to try
again for 8.04.

Any possibility of an image for the 1505n?
