Default nVidia Ge Force Cuda 310m

Hi guys,
I've just bought my new notebook, an ASUS X5DI, with a nVidia VGA (that in title of this thread).
I've installed Ubuntu KK with generic drivers enabled (i've preffered this ubuntu's version to JJ because I can obtain my resolution with KK).
I've tried to install legacy drivers from nVidia site (190.53) but when i restart i have blank screen. I've read something on forum (even on this) about edid file generated in windows environment, but even modifying xorg.conf i cannot obtain a good result. Screen is always blank and i had to format again my pc.

How cai i solve this problem? I need VGA works full because to work i use a CAD with high graphical requirements. I've bought this notebook for VGA because i believed it was perfectly supported. Please help me.

P.S. I've installed Ubuntu 32 bit version, but edid file was generated in windows 7 64 bit. Can be this the problem?

Please give the 195.36.03 beta driver a try. If you still experience the problem, please generate and attach an nvidia-bug-report.log.gz file. See the forum sticky posts for details on how to do that.

You shouldn't need any special EDID file, though I'd need to see the bug report log to say for sure.

Hi.
A question. I have installed 195.36.03 beta drivers.
Now I'd like to install current driver 195.36.15.

My question is: Have I to uninstall beta driver before installing current driver or I can install current driver directly?

The installer will uninstall any existing NVIDIA driver (including beta versions) before installing the newer version. You do not need to uninstall your driver before installing a newer one.

You need to stop the X server from starting at boot. How you do that is distribution-specific, but usually you boot into some sort of recovery mode and then disable the display manager service. You should contact Ubuntu support to find out how to do that.
