nvidia g105m on asus ux50

Asked by cpkellen on 2010-01-27

i have a nvidia g105m graphics card and im trying to install nvidia 190.53 drivers on my Asus UX50 laptop. i have literally tried all types of solutions but none have worked. nvidia claims to support the card and other people have had it work no problem however it will not load on my laptop. error message reads nvidia graphics failed to initialize. i have tried other versions of the driver and nothing works. i have tried editing the xorg files and nothing works. people have said i can install an nv driver instead with no 3-d acceleration but i dont know how o do this.

anything would help thanks.

ive done this and tried that driver among others. i believe the problem may have to do with the intel graphics chip installed alongside the nvidia card. both perform graphics processing so maybe there is a problem with communicating which does what?
also i have heard people installing a generic nv driver that would work for all chips but does not perform 3-d acceleration. does anyone know bout this i searched around but couldnt find anything specifically describing how i could do that.
