I installed Ubuntu 14.04 LTS 64bit on my PC. After I've installed nVidia drivers (recommended) to solve the problem of the cursor that vanishes, Ubuntu freezes randomly when I'm working, I mean that the system doesn't react to my actions.

System Config are :

Sony F Series, GeForce GT 740M/PCIe/SSE2, Intel Core i5-3337U CPU@1.80GHz×4, RAM 8gb

I think there is the issue with my graphic card. I am presently using "NVIDIA binary driver - version 331.113 from nvidia" as my graphics card driver.


The standard Ubuntu NVidia drivers generate some problems on slightly older and slightly newer NVidia hardware.

If you want more then the standard Ubuntu repository drivers, install the xorg.edgers PPA. As the xorg.edgers group ask not to give installation instructions directly without linking to their page, this is the best I can do for now...

If you don't know what a PPA is or need some guidance about rolling forward and backward of driver versions after reading their page, leave a comment below.
