I think it is not Intel adapter crashing, but the problem is with the open source Nvidia driver. Install the correct driver by sudo apt-get install nvidia-352 Reboot and switch to Nvidia sudo prime-select nvidia Then log off and on. But I suspect that Intel will work OK too.

You can easily fix it. Press Ctrl+Alt+F1. login to console and run sudo apt-get purge 'nvidia.*' That will remove Nvidia drivers. Then you can install some driver, like sudo apt-get install nvidia-352 Then reboot sudo reboot

I believe that opening the Additional Drivers app and installing the proprietary NVIDIA driver will automatically make the NVIDIA card be used for everything. Once the installation is done and you have rebooted, you can check by opening the NVIDIA X-server Settings app (not exact name, sorry) and going to the PRIME Profiles section.

You didn't say how you installed the NV Drivers. Unless I shut down the various components of X it's most likely to destroy the GUI. I'd open a text TTY, shut down the GUI, and reinstall the Drivers without deleting any files. Do you have anything that apt-get can repair?

escapologist, like yourself I've been "banging my head against a brick wall" trying to solve/fix/workaround the Ubuntu nVIDIA GPU problems. So thanks for your solution, I've installed XUbuntu 14.04 and have not experienced ANY of the nVIDIA problems that are plaguing Ubuntu. Strange that both use the same NVIDIA drivers !!!

You have two graphics adapters in your system. Now both of them are enabled and consume power. Also the nouveau driver is not good in terms of power. You need to install proprietary drivers. Run in terminal: sudo apt-get install nvidia-352 nvidia-prime and reboot. You can save more power and make the computer cooler if you switch to the integrated ...

I had the same thing. First using LibreOffice, which i uninstalled. Then after installing Openoffice. Selecting a piece of text in order to copy it everything froze. My problem was solved by turning off "Transparency" which can be found in "Tools-Options-View". Clearly a graphical issue indeed.

Solved - The HP Zbook 15 G2 has a "BIOS" setting under Advanced - Device Configuration - Hybrid Graphics which was set to "Auto" by default. Changing this setting to "Disabled" allows the nvidia-352 driver to be installed and functions properly.

I am guessing that the problem is that distro doesn't automatically change sound configuration - HDMI requires digital output which is not set automatically and although you have connected TV to PC's HDMI jack, there is no output to it.

I had the exact same problem. ensuring the dvi cable was correctly fixed was the solution.
