Last night I tried to install the nvidia drivers from the official site but the .run didn't work for some reason.

So after it, I tried to install them with sudo apt-get install nvidia-current and other stuff like this. When I installed the driver with the sudo command my laptop boots into black screen and I can only accses Ctrl+Alt+F1 function.

So I had to reinstall my PC again. Everything else is working correctly but I can't get this driver to work. And in additional drivers, I can only see the Wi-Fi adapter driver.

Also I've tried the bumblebee thing, and it doesn't work as well.

How can I solve these?

I'm using

  • Lenovo G580
  • i7 processor
  • 6GB ram
  • Nvidia 635GT
