You forgot to mention what was not working =) After installing the driver you need to log out and back in. – bodhi.zazen Feb 15 '13 at 22:12
Everything work fine but when I try to do some stuff like editing videos or things that need graphic card, the system goes slow. I didn't have that problem with windows. – diegoq Feb 15 '13 at 22:16
