First of all - I know that this is quite a ... difficult topic, but I would really like to install the proprietary Nvidia driver for my new notebook, which has an integrated graphics chip.
- Intel Core i7 3630 QM
- Nvidia GeForce GTX 670MX
- Linux Mint 15 64 bit everything updated
(The proprietary driver dialog doesn't show anything I could install...)
I've already attempted to install the driver from the Nvidia website, but then I stumbled upon the sticky thread in this forum from McLovin http://forums.linuxmint.com/viewtopic.php?f=59&t=117643, that the general method for installing such drivers won't work (for hybrid PCs).
So here's my question: After 2 days of trying to get the graphics working (including a complete system re-installations because I was unable to get the graphics working again at all) I would really like to ask you guys - the professionals
I've also already tried using the nvidia-current and nvidia-current-updates + uninstalling / disabling the nouveau driver, but I simply cannot get it working ...
Furthermore I am somehow unable to change settings in my BIOS / UEFI (it's running in legacy mode) - It's from American Megatrends Version 2.15.1227. The BIOS only allows viewing, not saving any changes and some of the fields cannot be modified ... Probably I will ask this question in another board. But could this have any impact on my graphics?
Any suggestions? I hope I will not start a unicorns storm by asking this question
btw THANKS IN ADVANCE!
