[Linux Mint] 15 crashing with Nvidia drivers (any version)

http://ubuntuforums.org – I have LM15 with MATE but this also happens with Cinnamon. I think this may be related to the proprietary Nvidia driver and something about HDMI. I tried many versions listed under Driver Manager and I need it so using nouveau wouldn't be a real fix here. SOMETIMES I get a oops error on boot forcing me to reset a couple of times, eventually it'll boot and work fine. This also happened on recovery boot. Does seem to be fine with nouveau drivers but then Chrome won't use compositing and is slower. Code: Jun  7 11:25:27 christian-H61M-S2-B3 kernel: [    8.039409] BUG: unab (Hardware)
