I had this issue on a Dell latitude D630 laptop. dual core CPU, 200gb HD, 4gb ram. I solved it by backing up all my personal files, and reinstalling Ubuntu 12.04. I actually didn't have internet for a while after the update manager started being wierd. I tried installing various drivers for internet(used an Ethernet cable, and I had internet to download ...

I believe it still is a video issue. And boot parameter for grub is nomodeset with nVidia, but different parameters if booting with Intel. Can you set which video chip you boot with?

About sound: Left click sound icon and do you see "Sound Settings"? On Ubuntu in Output tab you can see Play Sound though: In my case I have "HDMI/DisplayPort" option which I set up for sound from TV screen. Also I have installed GNOME Tweak Tool. Maybe you need to install also some Tweak tool on Mint Linux distribution as well.

I had the same problem and I solved it by changing the Nvidia driver. I put the proprietary driver, and since then everything works.

Yeah man, 50 is great. Your fans aren't working hard because your temps are optimal. Your battery life must be awesome. To give you some perspective, my fans run allot when scrolling through something like Tumblr, using Youtube or streaming Cable TV apps but my temps get up to 70 sometimes. I understand your concern but it looks like you are just running a ...

Instead of running all of Steam with optirun I would suggest starting Steam normally and editing the program settings to use the launch command of "optirun %command%" (without the quotes). This will limit the memory of your graphics card to being used only by the game itself. I'm not sure if that will help with the other issues you are having but it may ...

This may be the same problem I'm having with Nvidia and Ubuntu kernel 3.13.0 (to check your kernel version issue "uname -r" in the terminal) How do I update to Ubuntu kernel 3.13.0 on 12.04 LTS without breaking the Nvidia graphics driver? The only thing I could find on this was patching the kernel, details are on this Nvidia forum ...

You need at least HDMI Version 1.4, taken from here: http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/High_Definition_Multimedia_Interface I would be eager to test mp4 "Big Buck Bunny 3D" with Bino3D or 3Dtv, available here: BBB 3D

You will need bumblebee to enable the nvidia gpu. For 12.04 sudo apt-get remove --purge nvidia-* sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade sudo apt-get install ubuntu-desktop linux-headers-generic-lts-raring sudo add-apt-repository ppa:bumblebee/stable sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install bumblebee ...

Thanks to @muru, I figured that setting the Display Configuration using the integrated Ubuntu solution works fine. Therefore, it seems that this is a missing feature of the nvidia-settings.


1

Solved! The issue seems to be with the open-source Nouveau graphics drivers that are installed by default with Ubuntu. I found an additional proprietary driver (NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver), and activated it. The system is now running normally again.

I am not sure but think so Ubuntu not providing Nvidia latest driver version directly. You need to get help from Nvidia. I think you need latest driver version, remove 331 that already installed, you can get Nvidia various driver version. Latest released on July 10, 2014. Click here.

I had this same problem. I just opened my NVIDIA X Server Settings, clicked on PowerMizer, changed Preferred Mode to "Prefer Maximum Performance" and that fixed it. So it does look to be a problem occurring when the Video Card tries to save power by changing/lowering clock speed temporarily. This is why it feels intermittent.

I hope you have not installed Nvdia Drivers in your system, $ sudo nvdia -v Will show your driver version[if installed and configured correctly]. To check Nvdia configuration, follow this link. If you not yet installed Nvdia Drivers, follow this link. Alternatively you can install manually at your own risk described here.

First method go to the software center click "Edit" select "Software Sources" from the dropdown menu click on the "Alternative Drivers" tab and select the proprietary Nvidia driver from the list of drivers for your system. when you are done, reboot for your changes to take effect Alternatively, you could install the proprietary driver from Nvidia from ...

I kept at this problem for a very long time (minimum 150 hours in effort over 14 months). Everything I tried didn't fly; and I tried so many things.

IF you have NVidia card then you should type : nvidia-smi -q -d temperature it will give Product Name, PCI ID and Temperature. You can also install psensors sudo apt-get install psensors psensors will show cpu temp and gpu temp in the system tray.

You may have a Steam shortcut on your desktop. If so, you can right click on that shortcut, select Properties, and modify the command to include primusrun. You should insert it just before the wine command, with a space to either side of primusrun

Regular expressions can help you here. sudo apt-get purge nvidia* bumblebee* <any other packages>* You could also open synaptic package manager, search for primus and mark it for complete removal.

Try the following (in the order presented): Change the power cable that connects the problematic screen to one that you are sure is working.

If you continue to have problems, Try another monitor that you are sure is working. If you continue ...

Yes. It sounds like a hardware problem as it persists regardless of operating system. This does not necessarily mean the your 670 GTX is faulty. Try a different (known working) cable. If you get the same result with a known good cable, you know where the problem is.

clean installing Ubuntu trusty, installing all the updates, then installing bumblebee seems to have solved the problem nvidia-prime must have been causing the x not starting issues, and now bumblebee isworking, so i can use my nvidia and still have my hotkeys.

Use the xorg-edgers PPA. Given that even Arch Linux is on 337 now, I think it will take a bit of time for 340 to hit the official repositories. You can keep an eye on the Ubuntu X team's PPA as well - they are tested by the Ubuntu team, I think.

If you encounter the problem with prime like an empty popup error in nvidia-settings panel you can see the bug in Launch Pad 1310023. I have encounter a similar problem and I can correct them with that: sudo update-alternatives --config x86_64-linux-gnu_gl_conf sudo ldconfig -n sudo update-initramfs -u then reboot and see if it works

The driver will not be able to load during the current xsession because the conflicting driver is in use. Erase all that stuff you wrote to the blacklist file and reboot for your changes to take effect.

While trying your suggestions I viewed this page: Unity doesn't load, no Launcher, no Dash appears That solved the issue. I started to step backwards, because the launcher DID show on first boot with the new card installed. It was after I installed the NVidia drivers that I lost my launcher/title bar. I removed the discrete card and was able to check ...

There's a three word answer I found by Linus Torvalds that I think sums it up. Tried nvidia-persistenced last night. No avail. Still have to open nvidia-settings on boot. It still displays the accurate adjustments but I still have to toggle underscan, apply, toggle back, apply. I'm with Linus.

To undo those commands, you can try: sudo add-apt-repository --remove ppa:ubuntu-x-swat/x-updates sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install --reinstall nvidia-current

Switch back to running the NVidia card with Nouveau or the Intel integrated card with Intel drivers, for as you state when you do so "the Microphone mute, ThinkVantage key, and brightness all work fine."

The answer was to delete the ~/.Xauthority file, as in this case.

Nvidia has decent support in Linux, they have drivers for Linux (both 32 and 64 bits). If you want CUDA support probably you will have to use the proprietary drivers, otherwise you can use nouveau. Just to let you know, here is the list of supported GeForce 700 based cards from the official driver (version 340.24, dated 2014.7.8): GeForce 700 Series: ...

If you install the propriatary drivers from Nvidia in Ubuntu, you can switch between graphics cards in the Nvidia control panel. This option can be found in the Nvidia PRIME tab in that control panel.

A different name for the mode ending in letters solved the problem for me. $ xrandr --verbose --newmode "1920x1200_60VGA" 193.25 1920 2056 2256 2592 1200 1203 1209 1245 -hsync +vsync $ xrandr --verbose --addmode VGA-0 1920x1200_60VGA $ xrandr --verbose --output VGA-0 --mode 1920x1200_60VGA

You can try to compensate the underscan with this command: nvidia-settings -a CurrentMetaMode="DFP-1: 1280x720 { ViewPortIn=1280x720,ViewPortOut=1230x672-25-24 }" Note that this command is for 720p resolution and 25 is the amount of pixels that the dead area goes horizontally and 24 is the amount of pixels that it goes vertically. Substitute those values ...

You have a display problem. Updating to 14.04 might solve that problem, and it might not work out. Trying the live cd will show you if 14.04 works with your system. So in that case a clean install will work. Do you have a complex setup (like for development) or a pretty standard ubuntu (all programs installed via the software center - no complex ...
