Default Re: GT 330M Driver problems

You seem to have the nouveau driver loaded also as i read from that log file.
Edit the /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf file with sudo rights:
Open a terminal and type:

sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

Add to the end of the file:

blacklist nouveau

Press enter at the end of the line. Save the file. Install the driver - first try the provided packages to see if they work. Reboot.
If still doesnt, you may need to disable KMS - it is a feature that the nvidia driver doesnt support. Google around how to do it exactly, in essence a kernel boot parameter has to be passed, not big deal. You probably use Grub2, i use Grub and they are different to set up.

I recommend using the nvidia-provided driver 195.36.24 or the 256 beta if the packaged driver doesnt work.

PS: I use that beta driver on Gf 210 and a 8200, both work well.
