Please can someone help, I have spent hours trawling forums but can't seem to find an answer, I have installed Linux mint successfully and it tells me to upgrade to accelerated driver. When I do this I get error messages on start up , no screens detected. So I have reinstalled and not upgraded the driver. At present in X11 folder there is no xconfig file and I am guessing it is something to do with this. I have also read that Linux doesn't support this nvidia graphics card but I don't know enough about things... I don't really want to go back to Windows but want to get the best out of my new laptop. Can anyone help or point me in the right direction please? Thanks
