Re: Nvidia GTX 550 ti not working
To uninstall the Nvidia site-provided driver, rerun the installer and follow the prompts. To remove the config file, open a terminal and enter:
I would advice you to uninstall the driver that you got from the Nvidia site, remove your Xorg config file and restart.
Then install the Nvidia driver that has been tested for your version of Ubuntu in 'Additional Drivers'.
Tell us if you need more help with that.
sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Then, you could try installing nvidia-current, the standard driver for GeForce cards series 6 and up. (Although sometimes newer cards can have bad support.
Start a terminal and enter:
GPUs such as GeForce series 6 or newer are supported.
Enter your password and let it install. I would restart afterwards, so you can use the driver.
sudo apt-get install nvidia-current
