I am trying to install some drivers on my new laptop (Dell xps 5). This is my current ubuntu version:

enter image description here

This is my current driver:

enter image description here

and when I changed into one of the nvidia drivers, I get this when I restart my laptop: enter image description here

And I am stuck there I cannot pressed the OK button, even if its there. So I power off my laptop and start it again and choose one of the generic modes to start Ubuntu again. Is there an application or smth which search and install your drivers for Ubuntu, like SlimDriver for Windows ? Or do you other idea how to fix this ? Thank you!


After I installed the Intel Graphics I tried to install one of the nvidia drivers and I get this when I restarted my laptop: enter image description here

But this issue was fixed: Fast-pressed key triggers auto-repeat (Ubuntu 14.04 LTS)


Maybe it will help someone. In the end I manage to install nvidia drivers:

I went to the addition drivers and select a nvidia driver then I went to:

sudo gedit /etc/default/grub

and I made sure that I have this lines:

GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet acpi=force" 

I had the acpi set to off. I have no idea why :) It was a random guess to put it to force and It fixed my problem that i described in the question. Maybe someone will give a proper explanation for this .
