I'm running Ubuntu 12.04 on my desktop at work. It seems like every other week when I boot up my computer it loses its display settings. It's to the point where I have to bring up the virtual console (CTRL+ALT+F1) to stop the lightdm service, reinstall the NVIDIA driver and reboot. It runs fine every other time... Just once in awhile I have to reinstall the graphics driver.
Doing this doesn't take all that much time (5-8 minutes, tops), but it's annoying that I have to do this every couple weeks.
- Ubuntu 12.04 LTS
- Memory: 7.8gb
- Processor: AMD FX 8120 (8 cores) - 64 bit
- Disk: 2TB
- Graphics Card: NVIDIA Quadro FX 1700
- Graphics Driver: NVIDIA Linux x86(64) 310.19 (The most recent version is 310.32)
Any idea what could be causing such an issue? Would upgrading to the most recent Linux driver from NVIDIA fix this issue?
