I require some help and guidance in installing NVIDIA drivers on my system with dual Intel/Nvidia graphics processors.
I am currently running Ubuntu 14.04, and I am aware that the OS is in its late beta stage, however I perform daily updates. The OS is running fine and smooth, so I can not say that I have experienced any problems.
Following the installation method from below I successfully installed the Nvidia driver without any errors. However upon restarting the system I was presented with a black screen.
Following a solution, I blacklisted the Nouveau Driver and performed another restart whereupon I was presented with the logging screen but in a 4:3 aspect ratio format. I was unable to continue the login to the Unity desktop because the system froze and rendered the mouse and keyboard inoperable.
Following another solution, I then restarted the system in console mode where I proceeded to check the nvidia-xorg file. I noticed the settings looked odd as
Section "Device" and
Screen were missing. I tried recreating the file as per instructions using
nvidia-xconfig, but i received an error
Unable to load X Server Display Configuration page. At that point I gave up and reinstalled Ubuntu. I repeated this process once more but with no Success. I am currently running Ubuntu without the Nvidia drivers and I disabled the card using this method
apt-get install --no-install-recommends bumblebee. However I would like to get the Nvidia graphics card working.
sudo apt-get purge libvdpau-va-gl1 sudo apt-get install nvidia-319 nvidia-settings-319 nvidia-prime
