Had no problems before and was running Nvidia Driver Version 295.59. Now when Ubuntu updated from Kernel 3.2.0-26-generic to 3.2.0-27-generic and I reinstalled the Nvidia Driver Version 295.59 I had tons of performance issues. There were stutters, momentary hangs and when I checked my Xorg logs I found that it was Nvidia and I have posted the logs separately.

So I proceeded to update to the newer Nvidia Driver 302.07 which is in BETA but the performance issues went away and I approached normal operation. However, google-chrome had a massive hang that froze the entire screen. Nothing in the Xorg log reported anything out of the ordinary but the Kernel log did, attached.

The problem also affects my screen saver, I had to disable it because the system went to blank screen and could not load the Xscreensaver lock out login screen and the whole system went into a Kernel panic...

My TTY's the CTRL-ALT-F1 things are blank too...

Here are my Xorg logs:

1 Answer 1

my nvidia driver is 295.40 on update from kernel 3.2.0-26 to 3.2.0-27 I get no sound and no sound icon appearing at the bottom of my cinnamon desktop. However I do get the drum sound on the login screen.

My system now periodically freezes, typically when I switch desktops. When it freezes the cpu is, judging by the fan speed, not especially highly loaded.

90% of my work is done through the Chrome browser. I just need a system that brings this up fast and is reliable. The new kernel does not do this for me and so I have reverted to 3.2.0-26

Welcome to Ask Ubuntu! This seems like it is, at least in part, an answer to the question, but it's worded as though you're asking a separate, related question. To make this clearer for people searching for help (so they know this post might help them), and to decrease the likelihood that this post will be considered not-an-answer and deleted, I recommend rewording this. If you want help with the problem you are/were having, I recommend posting it a new question. –  Eliah Kagan Jul 31 '12 at 20:56
