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?

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??

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Setup Dual Screen Display On Computer With Nvidia Optimus?

Aug 17, 2011

having trouble setting up a dual monitor from my Dell xps laptop using an HDMI port. It dual boots onto Ubuntu 10.04. The computer has a Nvidia GeForce GT 555M with Optimus graphics card I need to make sure I have not installed the restricted drivers. So I think what is happening right now is that the graphics are shown off the integrated graphics card. This is my output from <lspci | grep VGA>

Code:

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Device 0126 (rev 09)
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation Device 0dcd (rev a1)

The forum recommends to use this program called Bumblebee but I have had some issues with that in the past. Is there somehow I can setup my dual display while staying on Ubuntu 10.04 and not installing Bumblebee? I have researched into setting up dual display walkthroughs before but they all concentrate on nvidia or ATI configurations.

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.

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?

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:

[url]

[url]

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?

Debian Hardware :: Unsuccessful Install For Nvidia In Jessie (Optimus)

I have Debian Jessie and I've been trying to install the Nvidia privative drivers. I've tried several ways to do it and all of them end in the same way. The last one I tried was installing bumblebee-nvidia and bumblebee with apt-get. The output was [URL] ....

Then I restarted and runned nvidia-xconfig

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.

Code:
[ 20.743]
X.Org X Server 1.10.1
Release Date: 2011-04-15

Fedora :: Install The Nvidia Quadro NVS 110 169.04 Drivers - Error "No Precompiled Kernel Interface Was Found To Match Your Kernel"

Nov 2, 2009

I am trying to install the Nvidia Quadro NVS 110 169.04 drivers but am having issues during install. Prior to attempting my install I did install the kernel-devel rpm so it can compile. after running the RPM I get. Quote: No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; would you like the installer to attempt to download a kernel interface for your kernel from the NVIDIA ftp site [URL]?

which of course does not work. next it says Quote: "No precompiled kernel interface was found to match your kernel; this means that the installer will need to compile a new kernel interface.. i hit okay and move on to. Quote: Error: Unable to find the kernel sources tree for the currently running kernel. Please make sure you have installed the kernel source files for your kernel and that they are properly configured; on Red Hat linux systems, for example be sure you have the 'kernel-source' or 'kernel-devel' RPM installed. if you know the correct kernel source files are installed, you may specify the kernel source path with the "--kernel-source-path' command line option

Ubuntu :: X Fails To Load With Nvidia Driver: "screen(s) Found But None Have A Usable Config"

May 8, 2010

My system is a Lenovo B500 All-In-One, with an Nvidia GTS 250M video card. nv seems to work okay, but I cannot get the desktop to load with the nvidia driver (nvidia-current, from the repository). I've been hacking away at this for a week and a half with no results. Every time I try to boot with the nvidia driver, the splash screen comes up for a second, the screen flashes a couple times between a "static" screen and tty2, then the screen seems to go to a test mode, where it flashes a series of solid colors indefinitely. Looking at /var/log/Xorg.0.log, I see the following:

OpenSUSE Install :: Black Screen With Error 15: File Not Found

Oct 8, 2010

I managed to get following config up and running very nicely with an 11.3 installation. But recently I did a clean install of the OS and hoping to preserve my data in the home HD (2TB) partition I did the following operation which resulted in black screen screen with error 15: file not found.

Config: one SSD root (90GB) and swap (30Gb) second HD for home (2TB)

During the installation I reformatted and mounted the SSD with root and swap as above. I left the home HD (2TB) unformatted and mounted as home.

When I did my first boot up, it worked perfectly - Even Fire Fox booted up with my recovered pages as of my last install! However after installing my multi-media codecs, and security updates, etc. to the fresh install I rebooted the system only to discover that I am unable to get past GRUB!

I don't have to lose my data every time I do a fresh install to new ISO release.
