Default Driver install doesn't see the GT 555M

I assume this is because I have an Alienware M14x and Dell modified the card so nvidia drivers don't recognize it. I know on windows there was a way around it and would like to know if there is a work around for linux devices. Any info is gladly appreciated.

Actually, it's more likely because your laptop has Optimus. Look into Bumblebee.
