I have a 2 year old laptop (an ASUS K73SV, 8Gb RAM, intel i7-2630QM, nVIDIA GeForce GT540M 1Gb) and the GPU setup is a hybrid system (which means it switches between the intel HD integrated in the CPU).
I'm running only Ubuntu 13.10 atm and any proprietary driver installation of Nvidia has failed. Bumblebee, optimus, etc..
Is there anybody out there who can tell me if it's even possible to install proprietary drivers on my laptop? (or somebody with a similar setup who found a miraculous way to install and use them?).
I have been trying over a year to find something and this is my last resort ;).
Thank you for trying to help me!
EDIT: To clarify, before I installed the nvidia drivers without bumblebee, I just got stuck with a black screen at boot. I'd had to mess around with the command line to get everything working again but it did work again. Then I tried bumblebee, I thought it didn't work because nothing really changed (optirun). Now I have bumblebee installed but no idea how I should check if it works...
