I'm pretty new to linux, but I did my best to obtain all information regarding my issue so maybe someone could help out.
I have an HP Pavilion dv6 Notebook, with Ubuntu 14.04 manually installed.
The log of
lspci | grep VGA is:
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller (rev 09) 01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GF108M [GeForce GT 630M] (rev ff)
I need to disable the Intel graphic card and only use my NVIDIA, as currently I'm pretty sure the NVIDIA is not in use.
lsmod I see it uses the i915 module. I tried blacklisting that module in
/etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf but that didn't really work because i still couldn't use the NVIDIA card for display.
I can't enable NVIDIA from BIOS, nor disable intel.
So what I'm looking for is a solution allowing me to use the power of my NVIDIA laptop, as currently the graphics are pretty bad due to the intel usage.
