I bought a new laptop 2 months ago, with a GeForce GT 335M VGA and win 7 preinstalled. I installed in parallel Ubuntu 10.04 64 bit but face the following problem
When I activate nvidia driver from the "hardware drivers" tab ( it gives me only one choice ,to install :version current" driver ), I get after restarting, my screed divided in 4 quadrants with something like a corridor in the middle ,each quadrant showing a tiny ubuntu log screen Only after uninstalling it or booting in graphics fail safe mode I get a normal screen again but then , google earth e.g runs slowly and complains that it works in open gl mode or something like that . May be its only that the VGA card is new and there is not yet a proper driver for it? Or should I try some changes in some configuration file? I have tried the advices from https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Bi...erHowto/Nvidia
but it didnt help . In win7, the card works fine but ....
Please, any help would be very appreciable
