1. Go into Synaptics and type on the search "xserver-xorg-video-nouveau" and delete just that package.
2. Go into Synaptics and type on the search "nvidia" and uninstall everything that has the name nvidia on it.
3. I would restart at this point, Now you need install NVIDIA-Linux.run. The linux operating system is case sensitive so type as you see. To install, press Ctrl+Alt+F1, log in and type theses commands "sudo service mdm stop" now to find NVIDIA-Linux.run. "cd /home/YOUR-USER-NAME-HERE/Downloads and once your in the "Downloads" directory type "sudo sh NVIDIA-Lniux.run" and say "YES" to everything.
If you're having problems finding NVIDIA-Linux.run in the "Downloads" folder from the command line, just move the NVIDIA-Linux.run file to your /home folder and all you have to do is run the "sudo sh NVIDIA-Linux.run"
4. After everything is set and done, start the service again "sudo service mdm start" and to go back to your desktop press "Ctrl+Alt+F8" but for simplicity you can just restart your computer.
Let me know the description of any errors you encounter.
If I make this, Could I resolve the problem?, Could I configure the laptop to use the Nvidia Card?
