I bought a brand new Dell XPS 17 (L702X) laptop which I planned on using as a Linux machine. I've installed both Maverick & Natty with no problems as far as the default video driver goes. However, if I want any of the Desktop effects or anything other than the bare minimum, I need to install the proprietary Nvidia restricted drivers. Each time I install and reboot, the machine just hangs at boot (checking battery state.) The only way to get out of this is to Alt + F1 and rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Everything I google indicates that 11.04 supports this card, but my personal experience is stating otherwise. Can anyone please help me?
