To install just check one of them, you will see a bar in the lower right conner, when it's done the driver is installed. As MrVavkadii said, the highers numbers are newer, in your case, 331.38. You have all these option cuz sometimes they don't work so you have mirrors to download them from. Binary driver is the normal one. Legacy binary driver is the ...

If the top of the list does not work properly (from experience), try the next one down the line until you find one that works. Or you could work up the line from the bottom? Nvidia 9 series, 8 series, 7 series, 6 series, 5 series and 4 series was my experience (different option of drivers than yours?)? edit: This was Ubuntu 12.

Information: 304 and 311 are version number. Higher number = newer driver. Proprietary means that the drivers are written by nVidia developers. Open Source means that the drivers are written by the community (by developers of course, but not hired by nVidia). What to choose? If you are sure that you have reasons to use proprietary drivers (not everybody ...

OK, there's an error with xscreensaver. I believe you hit this bug, although there doesn't seem to be a solution. Try to disable or uninstall xscreensaver. Can you please edit your question and elaborate on what the last 2 screenshots and "fallback mode" have to do with that?

I've found that manual installs work best for installing nvidia drivers, so go to here and download the latest drivers. By default, it'll most likely go into /Downloads, but if not, just know where it is. (I've heard that this method MIGHT not work well with older cards (such as yours) but it's worth a shot. Also unless you're having issues with nouveau ...

According to this thread on AMD Developer Central, this card is too old to be supported by the proprietary fglrx driver. Also, it's not suggested to download the driver provided on AMD website. Therefore I think the only working driver is the open-source one. If you're having graphical performance issue, you could: Try older LTS version (e.g. 12.04, ...

I've bought an ASUS n56jn and installed am Ubuntu-Gnome 14.04. Everything works fine but the graphic card. I am still not able to use NVIDIA 840M and it's working as fallback with intel graphic card. I hope that this can be solved with a newer release of NVIDIA drivers, but the laptop works very fine with Ubuntu (better than with Windows 8.1 ;-)). So, I ...

Discovered that no amount of repair or re-installing or unnistalling drivers was helping. Couldn't even load default open source drivers. Instead I loaded up a LiveCD to backup all my files and did a clean install.

I don't know the reason why, but I will show what I did and solved the problem: Start Additional Drivers Application Check NVIDIA legacy binary driver version 304.117 from nvidia-304 (proprietary, tested) button. Restart and that's OK!

First, the command you use for parsing video cards in this case: lspci | grep VGA Is not a reliable way to do this. Reason is that for some video cards, they're not listed as a "[0300] VGA compatible controller", they could be a "[0380] Display controller", or a "[0302] 3D controller", a more reliable way to do this is: lspci -nn | grep '\[03' ...

Have you gone to "applications", Additional drivers and searched for avaliable drivers? Should list available opensource and proprietary drivers for your graphics card

I think I found the fix. Source: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xorg/+bug/1314367/comments/22 so far so good. I'll update this if it starts flickering again. For those that are wondering, you need to install compizconfig-settings-manager first from terminal. sudo apt-get install compizconfig-settings-manager Open it and go to workarounds and ...

It could be a lot of different things. At this point, it's probably easiest to try some more experiments to see if you can figure out which part of the stack is not working for you: Can you install with a text-only mode? has this computer worked running other operating systems? can you swap monitors? can you use a video card other than the integrated ...

Ok, after some more Googling, I found a working solution from https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/fglrx-installer/+bug/1080612 Copy and paste these commands into the terminal in order sudo update-alternatives --set x86_64-linux-gnu_gl_conf /usr/lib/fglrx/ld.so.conf sudo ldconfig -n sudo update-initramfs -u sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade ...

I faced a similar issue and was able to find a helpful answer from ubuntu bug reports. It seems that gpu-manager is resetting your xorg.conf file. You can stop that by commenting out the start on lines in the file /etc/init/gpu-manager.conf. This should help you solve the problem of the vanishing xorg.conf file. Later you can do a aticonfig --initial ...

I did some more digging in google and found out at ubuntuforums that gpu-manager was causing the confusion. I tried doing aticonfig --initial --adapter=1 to generate an xorg.conf file, but the file was getting replaced with an near empty file on reboot. On reboot my system will default to the integrated GPU. I guess its the driver making this decision on ...

What do you mean? The nVidia card is right there. It's a VGA compatible controller: 00:1f.2 SATA controller: Intel Corporation 6 Series/C200 Series Chipset Family SATA AHCI Controller (rev 05) 0:1f.3 SMBus: Intel Corporation 6 Series/C200 Series Chipset Family SMBus Controller (rev 05) 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GK104 [GeForce GTX ...

I've installed Ubuntu Gnome too and I had the same issue: logo screen freezing after installing propietary drivers. The only solution that worked to me was install nvidia 331-updates and install/switch to lightdm as default display manager. I've followed this: Ubuntu 14.04 nvidia-prime "is it supported? no" And when gnome freezes after reboot: ...

I was eventually able to get this to work by adding the xorg-edgers PPA and installing the latest proprietary NVIDIA driver there.

For what is is worth: nvidia-smi prints the same for me, the diff being facts: I have a GTX 780 and nvidia-settings correctly tells I have version 340.17 of the drivers. $ uname -a Linux wkbox 3.16.0-031600-generic #201408031935 SMP Sun Aug 3 23:36:11 UTC 2014 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux Why does it say Not Supported for Compute processes? ...

A while back, Spotify enabled hardware acceleration by default in the desktop client.
