Exclamation [gt555m(0deb)] Won't work in Ubuntu 11.10

Hello. I use Ubuntu 11.10 on my laptop Lenovo Y570 and have trouble with activating discrete video card nvidia gt555m(01:00.0 0300: 10de:0deb (rev a1) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])). When I install official driver from Nvidia download page(http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux-d...09-driver.html), and run it from bumblebee (application for switching between two video cards) I get error:
[    71.825] (EE) NVIDIA(0): Failed to initialize the NVIDIA GPU at PCI:1:0:0.  Please

and dmesg say

[   72.056950] NVRM: rm_init_adapter(0) failed
But my video card supported in last drivers - http://www.nvidia.com/object/linux-d...09-driver.html
How to fix it?
Sorry for my terrible English...
