hd 4000,gtx660m(msi ge60 laptop) nvidia& bumblebee problem

Hi, i installed fedora 20 lately. And tried install run nvidia drivers.

I tried kmod, akmod, proprietry binary nvidia installer. All failed, tried to compile bumblebee, bbswitch and primus from their source code still nothing. Xorg -configure says "Number of created screens does not match number of detected devices" and gives me list of video drivers

bumblebeed, bbswitch also gives an error.
I tried installing intel driver from but still when i run fedora laptop fans go insane if i run the x server. I can't figure out what to do. I am out of options. Should i reinstall the system and start all over you think? The kernel and libraries were messed up with akmod,kmod binary proprietry installer, i yum - reinstalled xorg-* to fix that but, the xorg.conf will not be generated. It drives me crazy. Never thought linux nvidia drivers would be still annoying after so many years. I hate nvidia

What do you think i should do?
