I have a problem in getting the NVIDIA card to load. I get the classic "no screens" found. I've even forced it to used "ConnectedMonitor" DFP-0 for my laptop screen.

I suspect that something is wrong with my settings that will recognize my flat panel. My NVIDIA drivers do not see it and then Optimus kicks in the onboard intel video drivers and it loads up X that way.

I have tried all the different variations with no avail (Nouveau, bumblebee+nvidia_current, nvidia-current alone, and NVIDIA drivers from NVIDIA site).

Interestingly enough, if I attach a monitor via DVI connector through a docking station, NVIDIA drivers load up successfully and finds DFP-3. The external monitor gets Unity loaded, but the laptop monitor goes blank.

HELP!

My GPU INFO

nvidia-xconfig --query-gpu-info

if I don't have the external monitor connected and I query GPU info:

Number of GPUs: 1

GPU #0:
  Name      : NVS 4200M
  PCI BusID : PCI:1:0:0

  Number of Display Devices: 0

if I do have it ... it shows me that I have one Display Device connected.

Why do you specify the bus id of the intel card for Device1? I've just got my nvidia card to work on a dell latitude e6520 with an external monitor; the nvidia settings manager specified the nvidia bus id for Device0 and Device1. –  klaus triendl Jan 17 '12 at 15:50
    
I have the same video card on my T520 and it works fine. I had to remove nouveau completely rebuild the ramfs and then installed drivers downloaded from nvidia which creates an xorg for you. One thing with Lenovos is you must change display settings in the Bios, they come precinfigured to be optimal for Windows 7, needs to be changed to discrete if I'm not mistaken. –  kingmilo Apr 19 '12 at 6:20

1 Answer 1

I don't have your hardware , but i get the same issues on my laptop with two graphic cards.

In my case its was caused by the fact that the other card is not connected to my internal laptop monitor( it can only be connected to one graphic card at a time. If you're unable to successfully switch on / off / the proper card and switch in on to the monitor. This is what you get.

I got it working by poking some memory addresses manually in grub. In your case you probably need to do something specific for your hardware. Have you triedd using switcheroo?
