    [SOLVED] Re: Disable nvidia card on Macbook Pro 9,1

    You might want to go back a re-read my post. I did get it working by following those instructions (which is why I marked this thread as SOLVED). I guess the first time around I typed something...
  3. [ubuntu] can't install nvidia driver on MacBook Pro 9,1

    [SOLVED] Re: Disable nvidia card on Macbook Pro 9,1

    I'm not exactly sure which part of the motherboard you are looking to control. From what I understand, the Macbook Air does *NOT* have dual video cards it in (what Nvidia refers to as their Optimus...

    [ubuntu] Re: multi-display issue after 13.10 upgrade

    Ok so you just have a single card and it's still happening. It could be something with the Intel driver I suppose. I guess we should just open a bug report and see where it goes. It's always a...

  21. [SOLVED] Re: Best way to migrate partition to larger hard drive?
