Default GT420M not working

Wow what is going on with NVIDIA. I have always bought NVIDIA based laptops and desktops.

My recent purchase was the Dell XPS 15 - I first looked and yes it had a GT420M NVIDIA chip and 1080p.

I even checked the "supported" section in the latest drivers release for the GT420M - and yes its there.
So I thought I was good.

I installed linux and the latest binary drivers. X windows wont start.
it says no screens found.

I dont care about battery usage or anything as for my purpose the laptop is plugged in when I am using it.

I just need X windows to come up?

Is this possible with GT420M under linux or not?

Please help.
