I had a similar problem. This is just a note to whomever else might find it useful. Things started working once I re-enabled optimus from BIOS. It seems the developers didn't do enough error handling. There should really be a bug report about that.

Try taking a look at /etc/default/grub file. Open command line (Ctrl + Alt +T or Ctrl +Alt + F1), and type cat /etc/default/grub .

In my case this did not work. The problem is a bug in ubuntu-drivers-common. I had the same problem with my W530 and could solve it by downgrading to ubuntu-drivers-common=1:0.2.91.4 sudo aptitude install ubuntu-drivers-common=1:0.2.91.4 sudo aptitude hold ubuntu-drivers-common

I know its late, but since this question comes up on google, I will explain how I can use my Geforce GT 635M with crossover: 1) Find out how the windows program is launched; check /home//desktop/Some App.desktop for the Exec Line 2a) prepend primusrun (or optirun) OR 2b) the Exec line tells to execute a script somewhere in .cxoffice/.../.lnk; edit that ...

new update: as I thought, changing just one line in /etc/bumblebee/bumblebee.conf actually worked out: I got everything working perfectly on updated LMDE 201403 (debian jessie based) by just adding some code to KernelDriver line. Before editing, it was like: KernelDriver=nvidia I just added -current to it. This is line now: KernelDriver=nvidia-current ...

OK after trying a lot of different things (and subsequently undoing or redoing each one, to try to prevent a bigger mess), I found the solution. #uninstall bumblebee and nvidia drivers sudo apt-get purge bumblebee* nvidia* #reinstall nvidia 331 #(the only driver that apparently works correctly with my video card) sudo apt-get install nvidia-331 ...

Yes maybe your HDMI port is missing/broken or not detected correctly by Ubuntu.

If you own a digital TV try this: disconnect the digital signal to it at the TV end. Connect your monitor instead. If this works, your monitor is fine.
