I have noticed lately that my screen has gone black for a couple seconds, then went back to normal. This will happen regardless of the application I am in, and in a bad spell will occur every 30 seconds or so. Through some research and suggestions from friends, I have tried to diagnose this as a driver issue. I have an Nvidia GeForce 755m graphics card, which works fine with my Windows 8.1 configuration. I have tried to download the proper drivers for my graphics card and there is always an error when I run the file. Here is the link for the driver I tried to download: http://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/78469/en-us
Is Nvidia supported in linux? Please let me know what I am doing wrong.
