there are a lot of simmilar topics, but I have no found anyone where would be a problem like mine. I just bought a notebook with a graphic card „Nvidia Geforce G10M“ and installed Linux Mint 13 (32 bit, Cinnamon). Everything is working fine, but I can't run any game, which requires a 3D graphic acceleration, such as „World of Goo“, or „Amnesia“, or „Psychonauts“. Other game „Limbo“ is working fine.
I think, that my graphic card is not working properly. Therefore, I downloaded a driver from here: http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux-display-ia32-295.59-driver.html. I tried to install that, but I got a message, that I had to stop the X sever. So I wrote:
Code: Select all
sudo service mdm stop
This should stop the X server so I could install the driver. But there my problem comes. Everything dissapears and only black screen is seen without any command line. The only way to get out of this is to reset the computer.
It would be great if you could help me. Thanks.
