http://ubuntuforums.org – I installed Ubuntu 12.04 onto my Lenovo T61 and it came up on my external monitor fine during the install and after logging in and using the OS for a while. Then I saw a message about "Additional Drivers". NVIDIA accelerated graphics driver (version current) (Recommended). -Tested by the Ubuntu developers -License: Propriety Then it goes on to say that it will provide 3D graphics that will be required for 3D Unity ,etc........ I clicked to Activate the driver and it downloaded the driver and installed it. Then it asked for a restart and after the restart I could see the GRUB boo (Hardware)
