- Installing Nvidia Drivers 6 answers
Might already have been answered, but every single tries did not work, so I'm asking this here. So yeah, I can't manage to install the AMD proprietary drivers (neither can I for open-source ones), I've tried using different versions of the drivers, nothing worked.

My machine is an Alienware M17X R3 laptop ( yeah I know, over expensive comp ), and I've set it up to dual-boot with Windows 7 (64x) and Ubuntu 12.10 (32x). Don't ask me why I picked a different type OS, I don't know. I know that it's kinda easy to install drivers for an AMD card on Ubuntu, but since mine is a Radeon / Intel Hybrid, most of the techniques I know don't work. Can someone help me on this one?
