You could try the process of elimination like this: GT 600 is rather new, so you don't want any of the legacy options. Nouveau is experimental, so you don't want it for day to day use, unless wishing to experiment. Now, the two 331 variants are essentially the same, but the first will stay at the current version, while the second one will be updated, as ...

About four years ago I picked up a rather rough trashed laptop with an nvidia graphics chipset. I tried several such drivers and soon concluded that higher revision numbers did not reveal a better fit. Fortunately you can change drivers without actually deleting the drivers. I seem to recall I accomplished this using Synaptic Package Manager. It was very ...

Well, it looks like it is indeed a hardware issue, as you both mentioned heating up and also the fact that both systems started misbehaving again yesterday. What were you doing exactly when it heated up? (physical conditions, like where the laptop was whenever that happened)

Using the latest FGLRX release from AMD ( AMD Catalyst™ 14.12 Proprietary Ubuntu 14.04 x86_64 12/8/2014), the system still hangs at least once per day using a R7-260, so I downgraded back to the open source driver. Your results may differ for the 6750. You also mention re-installing Ubuntu, which shouldn't be necessary. If you can get a desktop, you can ...

Ubuntu has built-in open source graphics drivers installed by default. If you install a proprietary graphics driver, you can have both the open source graphics driver and the proprietary graphics driver installed at the same time, and the operating system will use the proprietary driver instead of the open source graphics driver. If you have an AMD Radeon ...

First, do not use 32bit Ubuntu with a hardware that can support 64 bit. People moved to 64bit fully and many do not test 32bit packages as well as 64bit. Second, do you have your video card properly configured? Seems not. If it is NVIDIA, install vendor's drivers.

Motherboards very rarely have Nvidia integrated Graphics but the easiest way to find out would be to look at the back of the desktop and check if the monitor inputs are directly connected to the motherboard. This can easily be spotted by looking for a HDMI, DVI, DisplayPort, or VGA connector next to other inputs such as Ethernet, audio connectors and USB ...

It could be an actual font that's gone bad, maybe taking a look at that font with something like gnome-font-viewer to check, possibly reisntall the font? But, that's almost exactly what used to happen when I ran earler versions of gnome3 (I think that's still the base for Unity), only it had more letters completely gone and a few other graphic errors here ...

I'm not sure how you're adjusting the brightness, but using xrandr, may yield different results. As in xrandr --output VGA-0 --brightness 1.1 or 0.8 for darker, etc (see xrandr's output for your output name, maybe HDMI-0 or so) [Q showed up in "Unanswered Questions", may help someone with a different brightness option. Probably will never get a reply from ...

I installed a Lenovo Z50-70 laptop two days ago with an Intel HD 4400 integrated and with this Nvidia Geforce 840M GPU. I installed an Ubuntu 14.04 trusty thar on it (from an usb stick with UEFI boot). The system worked with the intel vga by default, yes, a current nouveau driver can't recognise the Geforce 840M. The easiest sollution to work with it: In ...

Welcome to AskUbuntu! ;-) Install aptitude (sudo apt-get install aptitude) and then run aptitude. Click on "Search" type "NVidia", use the arrow keys to go to nvidia-340.46 and click on "Package" and then "Hold". (and then still take a full system backup before installing CUDA; I use CloneZilla as a system backup: just take the "/" partition and leave ...

DJCrashdummy was correct, the kernel is basically the whole operating system. In fact "Linux" is a kernel! A kernel is a mechanism to abstract the compute hardware to the software. So, regardless of what underlying hardware is in the machine, the same system calls (calls programs make the kernel) can be used to access the hardware regardless of the ...

Ubuntu is working with a Linux Kernel. to explain it very simple: the Kernel is the piece of software that gets your hardware working with the Operating System. so... if you are successfully booting and using a Operating System, you already use a Kernel. in your case you probably need a extra driver... and some drivers just work with a specific ...

Solved using this: Cannot access secondary GPU - error: Could not load GPU driver sudo apt-get purge i915-3.15-3.13-dkms sudo apt-get install --reinstall xserver-xorg-video-intel libgl1-mesa-glx libgl1-mesa-dri xserver-xorg-core sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg sudo apt-get install --reinstall nvidia-340 sudo dpkg-reconfigure bbswitch-dkms sudo ldconfig ...

I also have the same graphics card - ATI Radeon HD5650M. I have installed the package fglrx-updates and am facing no issues whatsoever and can also play games like Left For Dead 2 on Steam with good frame rates. There is no such thing as HD 5xxx series not being supported by fglrx-updates as mentioned by @forthaction. Try reinstalling the package by ...

Warning: this may break your computer. Make sure you have important things backed up, and a ubuntu usb on hand. So what you're asking is how to install the drivers. You're at the right settings. Just select one of the two (fglrx) and let it run through its little loading thing. If it works, it might perform better for you. If not, it might break everything, ...

This flickering is a persistent issue; I've experienced it on a Compaq Presario and on a Toshiba Satellite. I've tried a few “solutions” which have not worked for me; maybe one of these will work for you. A) At a terminal, type gstreamer-properties; if nothing happens, install with sudo apt-get install gnome-media; once installed, try tweaking the video ...

Since the first post was deleted here again the whole text: I also had some problems like that before (insead of the login screen I had a black screen with a cursor). Are you using fglrx(-updates) as display driver? No idea, how can I know if I am using it? – user2282211 You would know, because you would have selected it in the options. As I know ...

It is most likely the fact that it is run in wine. It should not make such a big drop in FPS but when you run something in wine it runs slower because it is not native, neither is it emulated. If you can go into the game settings and see what the game thinks your graphics card is.

I have no solution for you. I just wanted to point out that from the output of lspci and lshw, you seem to have not one but two graphic cards. the second not being initialised by any driver: *-display:1 UNCLAIMED configuration: latency=0 Edit: and a place to look for more information is /var/log/Xorg.0.log, and the other log files like ...

That software checks /etc/lsb-release and that is a text file we can edit ourself so it might be fairly easy to circumvent. Make a backup first though if you do not know what this means. From a command line: sudo cp /etc/lsb-release /etc/lsb-release.backup And then edit the file ... sudo gedit /etc/lsb-release And change the lines that look like ...

Try to delete the monitors config file or edit it, but deleting it is the easier choice and should hopefully solve your problem: rm ~/.config/monitors.xml Hope that helps.

You can also download the .sh file from nvidia then follow the steps: First press control+alt+f1 - to exit GUI mode sudo service gdm stop (on ubuntu) navigate to the folder you downloaded nvidia drivers ./nvidia.drivers.sh sudo reboot after install

Since you have a dual GPU you should use Nvidia-prime or bumblebee to manage them both. Bumblebee allows you to switch between GPUs at a cost of performance Nvidia-Prime allows you to choose what GPU should he use. you should try both to see if its fixed i would advice nvida prime first to force it using your nvidia.

try to set your BIOS settings to default and try it again. It looks like a GPU issue, that is true, but it can be bcs of Asus BIOS settings, some turbo mode or similar. Report the progress! EDIT: When you boot the Live CD, navigate to System Settings->Software & Upgrades->Additional Drivers. Wait few seconds to find your hardware and check for ...

I had the same problem using 304/319 drivers from repositories, Nvidia has proprietary drivers on their website, installed from there they actually work quite well, I used this manual to remove remaining drivers and install the correct one directly from Nvidia. http://www.beginninglinux.com/home/graphics-drivers/install-nvidia-custom-driver-on-ubuntu-12-04 ...

Ok, so after filing a bug against the kernel by terminal command 'ubuntu-bug linux', I got a very quick response from the team. The first wasn't helpful at first, but the second was, so I start there: Update the BIOS to the newest version (apparently 14.04 needs the latest BIOS update to notice the GPU) First: ...
