Hello, I am trying to install the official NVIDIA drivers for my machine but nothing has worked.
NVDIA GEFORCE 650M GT with an Intel Optimus i7 processor. (my machine is hybrid I guess).
- Go to NVIDIA site and download official drivers
- Run official installer after disabling X server
- Reboot and see chaos
(More info http://www.gpugrid.net/forum_thread.php?id=266)
Basically, I am permanently stuck on low resolution mode, and when I go to system tools -> system settings -> software sources -> additional drievrs, linux NEVER sees my nvidia drivers.
I also tried using nvidia-current, nvidia-current-update, in fact I think I used every nvidia known trick command, but no driver will work.
To fix this problem I read several threads, the most important one being:

But it all has failed and not am I desperate. What have I dont wrong? Can someone help?
Thanks in advance.
