I've tried to install the nvidia drivers on my laptop (acer aspire E1-571G GEFORCE 620M), but additional drivers (jockey) doesn't show anything.
Running the command:
sudo lshw | less
...shows the following details;
*-display UNCLAIMED description: VGA compatible controller product: GF117M [GeForce 610M/710M / GT 620M/625M/630M/720M] vendor: NVIDIA Corporation physical id: 0 bus info: pci@0000:01:00.0 version: a1 width: 64 bits clock: 33MHz capabilities: pm msi pciexpress vga_controller cap_list configuration: latency=0 resources: memory:b2000000-b2ffffff memory:a0000000-afffffff mem ory:b0000000-b1ffffff ioport:2000(size=128)
I also tried to install the drivers via the terminal by:
sudo apt-get install build-essential linux-source linux-headers sudo apt-get install nvidia-current
...however, the drivers didn't install (system info says "unknown" graphics card) and the Unity launcher wouldn't start.
Any idea on how I can resolve this issue?
