I'd like to know which driver to use for my configuration (Toshiba laptop P50 A 14P + NVidia GT 745M/PCie/SSE2 - 14.04LT) to work.
Up to now, I've tried all available ones (340.96, 340.96-updates, 352.63 and 352.63-updates) and all are freezing the screen after some random time (from never in a day to a few seconds...). I can go back to no-freeze closing and re-opening the lid but it happens a lot.
Using the nouveau/intel driver gives no freezing but also low graphic performance (can't save properly Matlab graphics).
I've found two newer drivers on NVidia website (http://www.geforce.com/drivers) for GeForce GT 745M / Linux 64-bits / US En /recommended certified:
352.79 and 361.28
Does anyone tried one of those or another working one? Any tips on how to solve this?
I'm afraid to install a new one and can't go back to nouveau. I don't know how to do it in terminal. I've tried the following:
ubuntu-drivers devices sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-nouveau
Doing the above while using a proprietary one says
xserver-xorg-video-nouveau is already the newest version
And the proprietary is still the one used in "Additional drivers" (even after log out / log in).
