I'm searching for the right GPU driver for a MSI M670 notebook runnig Ubuntu 14.04.2 and I can't find it. I set the Notebook up for a friend an it worked fine after I installed the close-sourced drivers that Ubuntu provided, but now the notebook is frozen after login just as before the fix. According to lspci the GPU is a Geforce Go 6100. I followed this fix, but the driver seems to be wrong, I get "You don’t appear to have nvidia GPU supported by 331.38 driver installed in this system.". I'm out of ideas and would be very thankful for any help. :(
According to this list here, your video card is supported under the NVIDIA-304.xx driver.
To install this driver, first add the
xorg-edgers ppa from a terminal window type in:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa
then update the repositories by typing in the next line:
sudo apt-get update
then to install the 304.xx driver, type in the following line:
sudo apt-get install nvidia-304
NOTE: the important notices that are found here recommend that you purge the ppa before you do a
dist-upgrade to your Ubuntu installation, or it breaks your OS.
From the xorg-edgers PPA
Be sure to revert this PPA before doing a release upgrade or the upgrade will not succeed. To revert to official packages, install the ppa-purge package and run "sudo ppa-purge xorg-edgers".
