Hardware :: NVidia GeForce G 310M Support ?

Feb 13, 2011

I am thinking of buying a Lenovo IdeaPad Z360, it has a GeForce G 310M.

I can't find much info on Linux support but an Ubuntu thread seems to suggest it isn't good. Can someone confirm that this card works with the latest nVidia drivers on Linux (Arch in particular)? It'd be even better if you had the Ideapad Z360 and could report on any other hardware problems I might have?

NVidia seems to say they have support (listed without the G however), but I've heard conflicting reports and so would like to check.

EDIT: I also found these:



Does the Z360 have optimus and the Z560 not so? I can't detect that either of them have it but occasionaly, someone says that they do. Can anyone confirm this? I thought the only real difference was the screen size.

Ubuntu Installation :: NVidia GeForce 310M Support

Jan 28, 2010

I recently bought a sony vaio laptop, with nVidia GeForce 310M device.

I am new, and not very good with ubuntu. I downloaded a driver version 185, and installed, after installing which, I could not get any display at all. After trying to repair, in vain, I had to reinnstall the whole system.

I really need the correct drivers. I can see a version 190.42 of nvidia drivers, but that doesnt list my device model number, and so im not sure, whether this should work. Someone, also please tell me how do I repair, if I mess while trying this driver out?

Fedora Hardware :: NVidia GeForce 310m - Use Card In Conjunction With 14?

Feb 17, 2011

Is there anything special I need to do to use this card in conjunction with Fedora 14? It's been acting a little strange lately. Also I think the card may have some type of 3D support although I'm not entirely sure on that.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Frame Tear On Intel HD GMA And NVidia GeForce 310M?

Jul 25, 2011

I bought an asus U33JC and except for one major issue (frame tear) it works fine out of the box using 11.04 64bit, with some minor issues easily solved (suspend, upside down cam on skype, flash and java). The U33JC has optimus, but also a bios option to disable the Intel GMA. So I could use the on chip Intel GMA or disable it and use the discrete GF310M.

The major issue I have now is poor video playback. Frame tear occurs in every single configuration I tried: Either using the internal Intel GMA, or disabling the Intel via bios option and using the NVidia proprietary drivers or even using bumblebee. This frame tear occurs also on the desktop, but the real problem is that it's very noticeable on video, specially when connecting my HD TV via HDMI. I tested 720p h264 mkv videos and even low res xvid avis in totem and mplayer/Smplayer all equally poor. Using mplayer I tried several vo options, such as xv (intel? xv) and x11, and playback is poor on all of them. Oh, and I don't use compiz (don't care for it). Refresh rate is 60Hz, and should be the right one. It works fine with vlc on the soon to be transformed into free space windows7, but that's not an option for me. I used Ubuntu before on a laptop, but I usually use Gentoo, so I'm not familiar with the ubuntu distro.

The purpose of this laptop was to be my "tv media center" when at home and my work laptop for travelling (13 inch ! ). But it failed miserably on the first count. I'm still using my old celeron based Gentoo laptop with RGB out to my tv for that, still with much better results (it can decode only up to 720p, which is fine). But it is dying! I really don't understand why playback is so poor. Could messing with xconf be the answer?

EDIT: Here's my xorg log. NO VSYNC? Is this right? Please help.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: NVIDIA GeForce GT 325M And NVIDIA Optimus Support?

Apr 3, 2011

I own an ASUS N61JV-X2 notebook PC that has an Intel HD IGP, nVIDIA GeForce GT 325M GPU, and nVIDIA Optimus technology. I am running OpenSUSE 11.4 64 bit with GNOME. I used to be a former Ubuntu user. I used Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat 64 bit. In Ubuntu, it was not recommended that I install the proprietary nVIDIA binary drivers because it would cause me to log into a TTY console upon reboot.

nVIDIA states that they have no plans to support Optimus technology in Linux at any time. Would it be recommended that I install the proprietary nVIDIA binary drivers in OpenSUSE 11.4 64 bit with GNOME? Will I get the same problem as in Ubuntu? How do I do this?

Ubuntu Installation :: With NVIDIA 310M Graphics Card Drivers (310M) On A Dell Vostro 3300 - Errors "no Device Found - No Screens Found"

Oct 28, 2010

I have a Dell Vostro 3300, i5 460 processor with a NVIDIA 310M Graphics Card. I'm doing a KUBUNTU 10.10 (Maverick) install with the following results. The Live CD boots just fine to, "TEST," or "Install." Installation goes fine. However, the graphics card being used is the Intel i915. I have tried installing the NVIDIA drivers directly from the, "Additional Drivers," tool and after the reboot I get through the boot screen to the console. I try to manually startx and I get the errors, "no device found," "no screens found." The second install I tried purging and blacklisting the nouveau drivers and entering safe mode. Then using apt-get install nvidia-current. After that, nvidia-xconfig. Same results.

The third attempt I re-installed and this time downloaded the drivers from the Nvidia site (version 256.53). Blacklisted nouveau, remove all nvidia, updated initramfs, etc. The install went fine however I still end up at a console after boot with the same messages as above. No device found, no screens found. I've tried searching through the forum and web and have tried things like adding the modset option along with many other hacks, tips and fixes. still, no go.I can live with the Intel graphics for now although I lose 512MB of memory. Unfortunately there is no way to disable or change this set-up in the BIOS. I've seen quite a few bug reports at Launchpad:

1. Is this something I should just wait til a fix comes? Will a fix come?
2. Is there, or will there be an official Updated Ubuntu Guide for Maverick to install NVIDIA drivers with this tecnology?
3. Lastly, is there anything else I should try??

Fedora Hardware :: Nvidia GeForce 310/GT218 Fan Control Support?

Dec 18, 2010

I am running a FC14 x64 on a desktop which has a nvidia GeForce310 aka GT218 card which is being supported by the in kernel nouveau driver.

The kernel/syslog reports:


When Fedora 14 boots, I can hear the nvidia GPU fan spin up to its max rate.

With Windows on this same machine, the same fan starts at the same rate but drops to a lower (and less noisy rate) so we know there is graphics card supports fan control.

Does anyone know if its possible to set the nvidia's fan speed via the nouveau (or other) driver/util?

I have looked at nvclock (0.8b4 being the most recent I could find) but running this reports that the card isn't supported, although it reportedly supports the NV5x backend.

Fedora Hardware :: Setup Nvidia On Geforce 5700LE - Monitor Doesn't Support Screen Resolution

May 13, 2010

First off, let me say: I'm a long time Linux hobbyist and recently installed Fedora 12. I've been looking (some say "lurking") around these forums for a bit after I loaded it up and let me say: Leigh, You're an amazing young man! Keep up the great work! I've a question: I've just put together a hobby computer: Pentuim 4, with 1 Gig of RAM and a Nvidia Geforce5700LE. When I install Fedora from a fresh install, everything works great: nice screen resolution, good graphics, etc. but no 3d or acceleration, so I'm very limited on my programs.

So I decided I need to upgrade my Nvidia driver. I followed Leigh's Nvidia setup guide after installing Fedora 12 (all four steps!) everything seemed to go fine, but when I reboot, I quickly see the Nvidia splash screen, but the screen then goes blank. Well, not really blank, I can see what appears to be a kind of cross-hatch pattern, plus I can see what should be my mouse cursor on screen (it also is a square shaped pattern). I suspect it may be at a screen resolution that my monitor doesn't support. Once there, the computer pretty much doesn't do anything else. Usually I can break into the x driver loading and go to the command prompt, but this latest time I can't even do that.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: NVIDIA GeForce 8200M Ubuntu Drivers/Support

Jul 16, 2010

I installed Nvidia xorg drivers (not knowing it didn't support my card) and messed up my video setup. When I rebooted it wanted me to restore to default, so I did. Now that I have, I can do stuff, but I am trying to run some games in W.I.N.E. and it just won't run. I can't activate desktop-effects either. And to be honest, I can't find any information on the NVIDIA GeForce 8200M, I can only find info and support for 8200 and the 8200M G. otherwise I'll just have to reinstall.... And I just installed 10.04 yesterday.

Fedora Hardware :: Lenovo B560 (Optimus, Nvidia 310M) / "Screen Not Found" Error?

Jan 28, 2011

I am running Fedora 14 on a Lenovo B560 laptop.This laptop has a hardware peculiarity, namely Nvidia's newest gag: Optimus.This laptop has two graphics cards: an Intel GMA HD (for 2D) and a Nvidia 310 M (for 3D). The Optimus technology automatically activates the graphics card required for the current task.

Now, Optimus on linux is so far officially unsupported by Nvidia.

At the moment, my Fedora runs on the Intel GMA. I personally don't care if Optimus doesn't run on linux if I can somehow manually (even solely) use the Nvidia 310M graphics card.

So far, all my manual attempts in xorg.conf to speak to this card fail with the X not starting and the well-known "Screen not found" error.

Does anyone have any experience with this or ideas how to activate the Nvidia card?

Fedora Hardware :: No GeForce FX Support ?

Jun 21, 2010

I notice in Leigh's nvidia guide for F13 it lists: For GeForce 6, 7, 8, 9, 200 & 300 series cards but not For GeForce FX cards (mine is a 5200) as it did for F12. Does this mean the 5 series cards are not supported in F13?

Fedora Hardware :: GeForce GTS 450 Support In 14

upgraded a gfx card I installed latest drivers:

I did check the card support. As you can see its 260.19.36 version.

My GeForce GTS 450 should be supported already in 260.19.12:


But after reboot I get:



My system info:


I guess the GTS 450 is somehow broken in this release. No newer version in the testing repo. Is the only way to get it working to compile the official driver?

Ubuntu Installation :: Losing Support For GeForce GTX 275

Aug 10, 2010

I'm experiencing problems with Ubuntu Lucid Lynx x64 Desktop Edition and my nVidia GT200b [GeForce GTX 275]. First of all, when Lucid Lync came out, everything worked perfectly out of the box. I even had all the shiny desktop effects with Compiz. Then, let's say around mid-june, after installing the latest updates Compiz didn't work anymore. So I had to use no visual effects anymore. OK not the end of the world I assumed. But since Kernel 2.6.32-24 came with the updates, I couldn't even get X running again. Everytime my machine boots up, I get a X error message that no matching screen could be found. I checked the xorg.conf, even ran 'nvidia-xconfig', removed xorg.conf and tried it again, etc. etc. I can't get it to run with the latest updates. So I chose to stick with 2.6.32-22, where I at least have a running X server.

Btw., yes I am using the recommended hardware acceleration driver from System->Administration->Hardware drivers (which is btw. the only selectable one, there is no other one). It says "version current".

Why is support for the GeForce GTX 275 dropping? Or what am I doing wrong?

My enabled updates: lucid-security, lucid-updates, lucid-proposed. I do not have backports enabled.

Hardware :: Geforce G210 Support And Flash Accelleration

Apr 13, 2011

I am putting together a low profile machine for my brother. I was thinking of taking advantage of the hardware acceleration support in flash 10.2 beta. It says it makes use of the VDPAU; this only works with the nvidia proprietary drivers.

The card i was thinking of was the MSI Geforce G210. What kind of support does this have with proprietary drivers? Does anyone have any experience with this? If not, could someone suggest a low profile card above the Geforce 8 series that has better support? I will probably be using Ubuntu 10.

Red Hat :: 5.4 Not Compatible With NVIDIA GEFORCE GO 7600

Aug 14, 2010

I am trying for Redhat certification on RHEL 5.4. When i tried to install it on my Acer laptop with NVIDIA GEFORCE GO 7600, I was only able to install it in CUI mode and no GUI. From NVIDIA website I tried both the newest and oldest version they have for Linux, which is with .run extension. I tried installing it using sh <drivername.run> and it is starting the wizard, but exiting abruptly, with a kernel error.

How to work around on this issue? Any generic driver that would work for this display adaptor? whether version 5.5 would work with this card?

Ubuntu Maverick installs fine using on board video but when I put in the Nvidia Geforce GT 240 I get either no video or scrambled video. I've tried disabling the on board video and still no luck.

Hardware :: NVIDIA Geforce 7050 Compatible ?

Apr 30, 2010

I purchased a new computer and I am trying to boot up gparted to partition the HD for installing my Linux Distros, but it gives the famous error Quote:

input signal out of range. So I tried booting up some other live cd's, some give the same error as above and some tell me that the resolution or refresh rate in wrong. Of course using a live cd I have no control over that. I also tried three different monitors that have run Linux just fine on other computers.

My only thought that I could come up with is the NVIDIA Geforce 7050 graphics is not compatible with Linux. Can anyone confirm this ? Or is there something else I can try ?

Hardware :: Nvidia GeForce 8400 GS Not Recognized?

Mar 17, 2011

I am trying to build a linux box from an old Dell Optiplex GX240 that I got for free. I have gone out and bought a Sparkle Nvidia GsForce 8400 GS PCI video card for it but am having trouble getting it installed properly. It seems that the card is not recognized by the computer. The command lspci shows no signs of the new video card. I have installed the lastest Nvidia driver (huge PITA) but as expected this did not change the fact that the computer cannot see the new card. The card is rated for 350W and I have a 500W power supply so I should be good there. I have also changed the BIOS settings to auto detect the video card instead of just the stock one. Is my card simply incompatible with my motherboard or are there ways to get this card to work?

Fedora Hardware :: NVIDIA 195.36.24 Does Not Work With GeForce GTX280 On F13

May 28, 2010

I just installed F13, congrats to the community for the awesome work - everything worked straight out of the box .

Unfortunately, I need to install the proprietary NVIDIA driver for my job (CUDA stuff). I first installed F13 + kmod-nvidia from Fusion on a machine with a GeForce 7200GS, and everything works ok (after turning nouveau off).

Then, I proceeded to update another machine featuring a GeForce GTX280 (again, nouveau blacklisted). The install was apparently successful, but X turned out to be extremely unstable and always crashes a few seconds into the session, either by leaving a blinking screen or by causing the machine to reboot. Thinking that some file might have ended up corrupted, I reinstalled F13 and tried nvidia-graphics from ATrpms. The result was the same: computer hanging a few seconds into the X session. Finally, I installed from the NVIDIA sh package, and again same outcome .

The card is most likely ok because I ran it with F10 till yesterday flawlessly, so I can only guess that it is the new version of the driver coming broken from NVIDIA. I tried installing version 185.18.36 but it cannot figure out the version of my kernel headers, and the legacy versions available from the repos do not support the GTX 280, so I cannot be positive about version 195.36.24 being bugged.

Both machines are x86_64 (a Phenom II and a Core i7). Especially, does anyone know how I could get version 185.18.36 to run on F13?

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Installing Nvidia Drivers GeForce 210 In 11.4?

May 2, 2011

I am having a challenge to install drivers on this machine with the OS and graphics card stated in the subject. To date I have tried different ways and they are broken in the steps or in the results I get on my machine. The how-to written by ajohnw Installing an nvidia driver - easiest I have found to date. results in a file or directory not found when I try to execute



The article SDB:NVIDIA the hard way results in the following error (copied from the error log):


ERROR: The kernel header file '/usr/src/linux/include/linux/version.h' does not exist.The most likely reason for this is that the kernel source files in '/usr/src/linux' have not been configured.

Researching how to resolve that error and I can't find anything relevant to openSUSE 11, closest version being openSUSE 9.Lastly, I've tried this SDB:NVIDIA drivers and for some reason it does not generate the xorg.conf file. At least that's what I am concluding. I go through the steps, reboot the system and boot only to a command prompt. Navigating to /etc/X11/ there is no xorg.conf and I have to copy xorg.conf.install to xorg.conf to get back into the Desktop.
