after installing driver there is no /etc/X11/xorg.conf file to remove? – JOGOOL Dec 16 '13 at 13:09

i solved by installing Bumblebee. add the ppa to my system from the Xorg-Edgers PPA

sudo apt-add-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa
sudo apt-get update

check which nvidia driver you already installed run this command dpkg -l | grep -i nvidia and remove it in my case i had nvidia-current .

sudo apt-get remove nvidia-current nvidia-settings

then install bumblebee

sudo apt-get install bumblebee-nvidia nvidia-319
