    Can't get Nvidia GeForce GT 540M working on 11.04

    Hi,

    I have acer TravelMate 5760G Laptop, with Nvidia GeForce GT 540M graphics on it.
    Unfortunately, I can not get it to run with Nvidia drivers, what prohibits to run it with OpenGL. I need to make the OpenGL working so that I can work with Blender (3D design/render software).

    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 (screenshot attached).

    My Xorg.config file (what fails to load) and Xorg.log attached, maybe those contain something useful to debug this.

    I really hope this is not as beew says in this thread, an "unsolvable matter": http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1699939
