I have 12.04.03 LTS x86_64. My comupter is MSI GE60-OND it has an onboard graphic processor and also nVIDIA Geforce GTX660M . Currently the video card driver is not installed I was trying to fix it by installing the drivers for nvidia graphics card till now I couldn`t. Things that I have tried so far:


1)Simply installing the nvidia crivers :

www.noobslab.com/2012/10/install-latest-nvidia-drivers-in-ubuntu.html

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install nvidia-current


2)Then tried following this:

sudo apt-get purge nvidia-current sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bumblebee/stable sudo add-apt-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install bumblebee bumblebee-nvidia


3) Then this :

www.howopensource.com/2012/10/install-nvidia-geforce-driver-in-ubuntu-12-10-12-04-using-ppa/

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates sudo apt-get update

sudo apt-get install nvidia-current nvidia-settings

4) Then this:

Nvidia driver for GeForce GTX 660

When checked for the sudo nvidia-xconfig it was not found somehow. Only thing releted to nvidia were:

xepost@xepost-GE60-0ND:~$ sudo nvidia- nvidia-detector nvidia-settings


4)Then I checked if the hardware was detected:

xepost@xepost-GE60-0ND:~$ lspci -v |grep VGA

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Ivy Bridge Graphics Controller (rev 09) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation Device 0fd4 (rev a1) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])

Then updated I updated the the ids with:

sudo update-pciids

The updated ids are:

xepost@xepost-GE60-0ND:~$ lspci -v |grep VGA

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller (rev 09) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GK107M [GeForce GTX 660M] (rev a1) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])


Then followed the steps above I am not sure what is the problem, any comments will be appreciated.
