I have same notebook (bought it last week) with nvidia 310m graphic card, i also tried same methods as you've tried but with no luck.
I tried arch linux with latest nvidia driver and ubuntu with x updates ppa and got just black screen.
I simply gave up and installed intel driver (notebook has also integrated intel card), now it works with intel card.

Sorry i couldn't help you but at least you know that you are not alone ;)
