Something is probably wrong with your graphics card driver.

Had the same problem with ubuntu 14.04 and geforce gtx 860M. Updated driver and added prime-indicator to make sure that I was using the desired card all the time. (runs the same card for all processes) You can use bumblebee to choose card for each process separately.

For updating Driver:

How do I install the Nvidia driver for a GeForce GT 630

For installing prime-indicator:


  • my addionall driver says the newest is 361.42. but if i try to install nvidia-current it wants to install 304 wich one should i have? – Dennis Blokland May 27 '16 at 20:28
  • 361.42 , that should work... – Jayant Agrawal Jun 5 '16 at 9:54
