I know there are a ton of nvidia driver-related questions, but I tried everything I could find and none worked.
I am using an ASUS ROG GL752VW, core i7 6700HQ, nvidia GTX 960M 4GB GDDR5. I first installed Windows 10 and left ~200GB for my linux OS.
- Created Ubuntu 14.04 Live-USB with rufus
- Tried to boot from the live USB. Did not work, had to enable nomodeset from the advanced boot options, because it stuck at
Starting CUPS printing spooler/server [ OK ](solution from here.
- After successfully installed, tried installing the drivers
apt-get install nvidia-current
- After reboot, stuck in a login loop (after inserting correct password, screen would go back to login)
- Uninstalled the drivers
apt-get remove --purge nvidia-*
add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppaand installing the newer drivers (latest is 378)
- Again, same thing happened
- Uninstalled them once again
- Tried this, this, this and this. Nothing worked, same issue.
- Tried several different drivers (304, 170, 358, 367, 285 and more), with no result.
I also had a GTX 950M laptop and it was working perfectly with nvidia-367 driver.
Could it be a problem with the actual card? If so, has anyone managed to get it working on an UNIX system?
Thanks in advance.
