Hello, I recently ran an update from 304 to 331 on my old Dell M90, seeing that it supported the FX series.
Earlier, under Windows, I have used the desktop drivers for FX 3500 instead of the mobile ones (even though the 3500M was never in any compatibility sheets). And it worked great. Seemed to give the better performance than the outdated drivers that came from Dells site.
I thought that the Linux drivers would let me do the same thing, but after a repo install I was welcomed by a black screen.
I purged the drivers and did a clean install from the Nvidia downloads. During install it then told me that the latest driver for my card was the 304.xx.
Is this a card that has been forgotten?
Is there any way I can force my drivers into thinking it’s a 3500, not a 3500M?
Is there any easy fix from your side, that can add support for my card at a later release?
I am running ubuntu 13.10. Hope someone can help.
