I have a Dell M3800 with nvidia QUADRO K1100M and intel HD4600 running Ubuntu 14.04. I have installed the nvidia driver using this steps:
$ sudo apt-add-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa $ sudo apt-get update $ sudo apt-get upgrade $ sudo apt-get install nividia-common nvidia-331
Unfortunately this will install the driver but the graphic card won't be recognized.
The nvidia x-server doesn't show all the option.Also if I select the nvidia graphic card as default the system will freeze either right after the log in or before (showing just the cursor).
I've tried to clean up everything using
$ sudo apt-get remove --purge nvidia-*
and re install other drivers but nothing.
I have tried this one as well with no success http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us
I really need to use my graphic card, any help would be really appreciated. Thanks.
