Please open a terminal from the menu, type the following command, and press Enter:
Code: Select all
inxi -Gx

This will make some useful graphics data appear. With that output I'll be able to tell you if the NVIDIA driver can be made working.

Hello linux1mint and welcome to Mint,

I am affraid that your nvidia card is not supported very well in Linux as it is an nvidia optimus enabled card.

here is a thread that speaks to this and may offer some help.

That it's Optimus does not mean that you cannot run the NVIDIA driver, you can install Bumblebee (https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bumblebee) to get it working.

However I'd first like to see the inxi -Gx output. And please tell which Mint edition you are using.

I agree Albertp that's why the site i listed has a link to bumblebee :)

Yes, that's surely NVIDIA Optimus, you need to install Bumblebee. I already posted a link to an easy how-to for that.
