EDIT: Solved! I had to disable internal graphics in the bios. It was messing with everything nvidia related.
Hi. I’ve upgraded to a GTX 770 and my attempts to get the drivers working on Lubuntu/Ubuntu have been unsuccesful so far, so I’m looking for a little bit of help.
So far I tried to install them in two ways, both times in a fresh Lubuntu install:
-manual installation of the 319.32 driver using the official release from the nvidia website
-using the xorg-edgers ppa to install the 319.23 driver
Both attempts have been unsuccessful in the same way and show the same issue.
If I try to boot with my screen plugged into the GPU, right after grub I get a black screen with a blinking cursor, and nothing happens.
If I try to boot with my screen plugged into my motherboard, it boots properly, I assume that it uses my CPU’s graphic chipset (HD 4600)?
If I try to get into the NVIDIA X Server Settings, it displays an error:
You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver. Please edit your X configuration file (just run 'nvidia-xconfig' as root), and restart the X server.
So I ran the said command, and restarted X, but the same error keeps getting displayed. Here is a copy of my xorg.conf file, on pastebin: http://pastebin.com/NWYJuNcp
Also, when I run
sudo cat /proc/modules |grep nvidia
It doesn’t print anything, whereas if I do
sudo cat /proc/modules |grep nouveau
I get some files displayed.
So would the issue be that the nouveau drivers are not properly blacklisted?
If I check the
file, it does contain blacklist nouveau. Full content of that file on pastebin: http://pastebin.com/cqyvai7J
I’m not a very experienced user, so I don’t really know what else to try. I really would like to get those drivers working properly. Any help will be greatly appreciated. If you have any question please ask.
