I recently purchased an Asus 1215n laptop which features the Nvidia Ion graphics. The 319 driver installs automatically and works good except when I try to enable the external monitor (which I intend to use unless I'm away from home) through the Nvidia Settings manager. If I switch the monitor to the HDMI port from the VGA port, Nvidia recognises it, but when I try to enable it and save to xorg.conf I get an error. When I reboot the PC does not load up Ubuntu fully, I try to go graphics safe mode but fails. I have successfully uninstalled the nVidia driver by doing a:

sudo apt-get remove --purge nvidia-*
sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop

Everything works fine now, but the PC struggles streaming even with low quality video with the nouveau driver, which is completely unacceptable. Anybody have a suggestion?
