I have a Shuttle sn41g2 and I belive the correct nvidia drivers are installed but the screen is blank. I have tried the 'top tips' from the internet but with no success.

Thank you.

I have tried the following which seemed to complete...

sudo apt-get install nvidia-current-updates
sudo nvidia-xconfig
After boot up, I can see the message
NVRM No Nvidia adaptor found

It turns out the drivers I had installed were the newest but not correct. So I have downloaded NVIDIA driver version 96.43.07. As suggested by an error message in /var/log/dmseg.

I now get the following error:

ERROR: The kernel header file '/lib/modules/3.11.0-15-generic/build/inclu/linux/version.h' does not exist. The most likely reason for this is that the kernel source files in '/lib/modules/3.11.0-15-generic/build' have not been configured.

I understand that there is some pre-compiled kernel task to do. (whatever that is?) So how do I do that? Thank you.

dpkg -l | grep linux-headers

Results in...

ii  linux-headers-3.11.0-123.11.0-12.19 all Header files related to Linux kernel version 3.11.0
ii  linux-headers-3.11.0-12-generic 3.11.0-12.19 i386 Linux kernel headers for version 3.11.0 on 32 bit x86 SMP
ii  linux-headers-3.11.0-15 3.11.0-15.25 all Header files related to Linux kernel version 3.11.0
ii  linux-headers-3.11.0-15-generi 3.11.0-15.25 i386 Linux kernel headers for version 3.11.0 on 32 bit x86 SMP
ii  linux-headers-3.11.0-15-lowlatency 3.11.0-15.8 i386 Linux kernel headers for version 3.11.0 on x86/x86_64

Update:

It looks like I need to configure the kernel source files in /lib/modules/3.11.0-15-generic/build so that version.h is available from /lib/modules/3.11.0-15-generic/build. Does anyone know how to configure these files?

First thing: include that comment in your question. Second thing: run dpkg -l | grep linux-headers and post the results. –  Luís de Sousa Feb 16 at 9:32
    
Should I just install 12.04 LTS instead? –  Confused of Cambridge Feb 20 at 8:49
    
I have no idea how to solve this. Any ideas on how to configure Nvidia display drivers? –  Confused of Cambridge Feb 21 at 14:34
