Before you dive into the driver, you need to prove the hardware is good. First, take the card out and plug it back in to eliminate a seating problem. Make sure the power cable is disconnected from the PC and take ESD precautions. If that doesn't help, continue. From the manufacturer web site it appears to be a GV-N75TOC-2GI, for which there was a BIOS update ...

If you're really using an Nvidia GeForce 210 the hangup could very well just be the old hardware. Circuits age, boards start to mess up and eventually die. You're issue likely has almost nothing to do with Ubuntu and everything to do with you're hardware. I would say step up to something in the GTX series, even if it's one of the older GTX cards it should ...

If you did a kernel upgrade then @Zilvador answer may be good for you. If not the issue is the driver from Nvidia's site as there linux support is rubbish (but getting better thanks to steam). Boot the system and press ctrl+alt+f1 to get a terminal, log in and remove the driver like this sudo apt-get purge nvidia* Then use the one from the Ubuntu repos ...

Did you by any chance have a kernel upgrade since you installed the driver? I have a similar graphic card and I have the same issues when upgrading the kernel, meaning that I need to install the driver again every time. You probably know the installation procedure, but I will write it here below. Unfortunately NVIDIA requires that the graphic user interface ...

I had the same problem installing the driver for an old GeForce 9800 GT in Ubuntu 14.04-2. It was the NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-340.76.run I switched to the the tty1 using Ctrl+Alt+F1 and also stopped the service lightdm and when running the executable got the same error . What I did to solve the problem was navigate to the /tmp folder and erase the .X0-lock ...

Do NOT install video drivers to systems running in VirtualBox. Guest systems do not have direct access to hardware. Install the Guest Additions instead.

I do not recommend installing drivers from .run files. They will stop working after first kernel update. You can install Nvidia drivers by sudo apt-get install nvidia-346

You need to install a new driver for this brand new model. Run in terminal sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install nvidia-352 nvidia-prime sudo add-apt-repository -r ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa and reboot.

sudo service lightdm stop Then a console appears and you can try again. It's better if you write commands in a console that you can start by pressing Ctrl+Alt+F1.

What about saving it in /usr/share/X11/ ? I know I have to save config files there instead of /etc/X11 on my system for certain configs.

It's maybe related to the GPU manager. It should be mentionned in the log file /var/log/gpu-manager.log. If so, try commenting out the first 4 lines of the file /etc/init/gpu-manager.conf. #start on (starting lightdm # or starting kdm # or starting xdm # or starting lxdm) task exec gpu-manager --log /var/log/gpu-manager.log

I finally found a bug report here: that describes the problem and a fix. Open a terminal and type: gksudo gedit /usr/share/lightdm/lightdm.conf.d/50-xserver-command.conf Then add the -bs option to your lightdm config [SeatDefaults] # Dump core xserver-command=X -bs -core However, as I found out on the Nvidia forms from Axfelix's post this does not ...

WAW it was simple ,I downloaded the official Nvidia driver from Nvidia Drivers Download then I give it executable permission then I closed the X-server using Ctrl+Alt+F1 in that command line I typed ./nvidia-linux-XXX.run I followed the installer until it's done ,after reboot my Brightness was working just fine.

This sounds more like you deinstalled your windowmanager. Log into the konsole and reinstall your windowmanager (apt-get install ubuntu-desktop)

The NVidia driver version 346 is available as an Ubuntu package. apt-get install nvidia-346 should get you going.

It looks like you have installed proprietary drivers. And also it looks like you have hybrid Intel+Nvidia graphics. You can check which adapter is used by running in terminal prime-select query You can also check by glxinfo | grep OpenGL

It could this known issue I found in the official CUDA 7 documentation: http://docs.nvidia.com/cuda/cuda-toolkit-release-notes/index.html#resolved-issues-title.

When 14.04 came out, I ran into (among a host of other issues) screen tearing with my nvidia card; Try going into the control panel and setting the underscanning to 10% or so - in my case, changing the scanning at all caused a screen flicker followed by a perfect picture. Hopefully that fixes it, but I had to do it at every reboot because for some reason, ...

Basically, you're humped. This is a well-known bug; this is just one of scores of duplicate bug reports about it. It has been around for over a year, and there are still "me too" posts every day. There are a lot of bandaids posted, but at this point it is still an unknown solution - I tried most of the fixes and scripts shown, but all to no avail like ...

You sudo have hybrid Intel+Nvidia graphics. Your card is new and the recommended driver does not support it. To install a working driver with adapter switcher run sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install nvidia-352 nvidia-prime sudo add-apt-repository -r ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa and reboot.

You'll have to enable Basemosaic in the Nvidia driver to get all monitors working together, when Xinerama is enabled.

Since this is a firs google search result for this problem, I decided to post my solution that for me looks simple. I found this link on archlinux, and you can use xinput --map-to-output <stylus device ID> <screen ID> so I don't need to play with "Coordinate Transformation Matrix"...

I had the similar problem two months ago with ubuntu 14.04 after an update. My PC is running a nvidia geforce 7300 gs. Not exactly the same card as yours, but maybe the solution I applied will work for you as well. I uninstalled nvidia-304 driver and installed the nvidia-173. This is not a perfect solution, because I still encountered some minor issues, ...

If you get stuck at something like "Starting Displaymanager", hold Alt+SysRq keys and press R+E+S+U+I+B sequentially to restart Ubuntu safely. Then hold the shift key during boot to open the GRUB boot loader. In there, choose Advanced option for Ubuntu. Now, try every option from below to the top, except recovery mode one. At least one kernel will be able ...

Don't use converters and if you really must: use externally powered ones that contain a DSP and can do the up/downscaling for you. It's not the modules (a.k.a. "drivers") that's the problem: it's the converters! The older one is working because it's probably a standard VESA resolution (like 800x600 or 1024x768) and the other one isn't because it doesn't ...

You can remove the Nvidia proprietary driver by running in terminal sudo apt-get purge nvidia* I also suggest removing xorg-edgers ppa too. It can be done by sudo apt-get install ppa-purge sudo ppa-purge ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa But I suggest installing proprietary Nvidia driver with nvidia-prime. If you choose the right driver and install it correctly, ...

I was also experiencing these exact same symptoms and finally decided to do a little diving into my dotfiles and found the solution by systematic process of elimination. In my case, it turns out that something had gone wrong with the files stored in my compiz configuration cache. Simply deleting the directory and relogging solved my graphics issues: $ rm ...

Honestly, I would stick with single monitor for Linux. I tried multi-monitor setup, but it screwed up my screens and I had to reinstall/format/do the whole damn installation again.\ Depending on your graphics card, I would get the drivers from the site, if there are any. I know that some AMD/ATI cards work like plug-and-play.

Correct the permissions for your home folder: sudo chown -R $USER:$USER /home/$USER Don't use sudo without -i and a GUI based applications. Use sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf or sudo -i gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf or gksu gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf

If you install Nvidia drivers from .run files, you will always have to reinstall them after each kernel upgrade. To install Nvidia drivers a proper way you need to uninstall it first by running sudo sh <nvidia_run_file_name>.run --uninstall from the directory where the driver file is located. Then you can install nvidia-331 from Ubuntu ...

I tried every suggestion to try and fix the screen tearing while watching videos in Unity, Gnome, and Gnome Classic on two computers (one with Nvidia Titan X and the other with an old Radeon card). Nothing worked. Then I noticed that when I switched the video output in my VLC setting from OpenGL to X11, the tearing went away but I started getting a lot of ...

Not sure if this is relevant, but I believe ubuntu generally ignores xorg.conf. It does, however, create a virtual xorg.conf from various autodetected info and the xorg.conf pieces under /usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d. You might try adding the stuff you want in there somehow.

I have the same problem when installing the Ubuntu 15.04 in a Virtualbox (version 5.0). The system can't boot for installation. In this way, I can't give a try to the above solutions. I don't know if this can be done in the host OS. Someone has any workaround that worth to try?

You could try this and upgrade you kernel, and enter this in the terminal: sudo apt-get install linux-amd64_ linux-efi sudo apt-get install aptitude sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt-get dist-upgrade sudo apt-get install -f sudo aptitude linux-efi and it might work fine this way.

I had a similar problem years ago. Solving it essentially required aggressively removing all nvidia program files. Please note that the use of "--purge" when uninstalling the nvidia package did not seem to remove the offending nvidia program(s). I had to do a subsequent file search using "nvidia" to locate residual nvidia packages(?). Please see my post: ...
