http://ubuntuforums.org – Hi, I have acer TravelMate 5760G Laptop, with Nvidia GeForce GT 540M graphics on it.

What I did: I tried to install the original drivers downloaded from www.geforce.com/Drivers (NVIDIA-Linux-x86-285.05.09.run), and upon finishing install, it asked if I want to activate the newly installed driver. I indeed did, but after restart the system stalls shortly after "Checking battery" status msg (s (Hardware)
