Default Asus K52JC with G310M , ubuntu 10.04 - driver do not works

Hello. I bought Asus K52JC recently and I can't get working nVidia card on Ubuntu 10.04. Built-in Intel graphics works out of box, but when I try to install nVidia proprietary driver Xorg won't start. Xorg.0.log tells me "No devices detected".

What should I do? Any help will be appreciated.

Please try adding a BusID to your xorg.conf file. The easiest way to do that is to run "nvidia-xconfig -a". Then restart X and if it still doesn't work, run nvidia-bug-report.sh and attach the resulting nvidia-bug-report.log.gz file.

nvidia-xconfig giving me error:

I've tried to add "BusID "PCI:1:0:0"" manually. Xorg log provided another error:

Unfortunately K52JC is an Optimus laptop... so it won't work (for now).

Hi every body!
I've the same problem: I've Asus K52JC with G310M and Nvidia driver don't works, I get black screen if I try install them...
So...
At today, there is a solution for the problem or not for my specific notebook?

I read on ubuntu forums that on other notebooks with 310M a solution is possibile...

Thanks!

PS: I must say that I'm very newbie about linux, it's my first time with ubuntu!

Does changing BIOS option VGA initalisation from Vista/Win7 to discrete/dedicated (can't remember) make any difference?
