    No , is not more stable , but the 310 is newer driver than 304.
    You can test it if you want , by running the commands below (one at time)
    Code:
    sudo apt-get remove --purge nvidia-*
    sudo apt-get install nvidia-experimental-310 nvidia-settings-experimental-310
    sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    sudo nvidia-xconfig
    and reboot your PC to see if its better.

    Yes you have. If you ran the commands as I gave them , the command
    Code:
    sudo nvidia-xconfig
    creates an xorg.conf file . The path is /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    To open this file you can give in terminal
    Code:
    gksudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    and add what @dannyboy79 suggested , by hand (manually). You will see other options as well. I think you should add the Options at
    Code:
    Section "Device"
        Option          "NoLogo"             "True"
    save the file and reboot your PC to see the changes.
    Thanks

    he shouldn't have to remove the xorg.conf if trying a different nvidia driver IMO. the driver still remains "nvidia" doesn't it?

    By the way, NikTH, can you possibly provide some help over here I am having my own Xserver issues with an nvidia geforce 6200 card.

    Ok I've installed nvidia experimental 310. Hopefully it wont be as buggy as experimental 304.

    Re: Stuck at "checking battery state..." in ubuntu 12.04. Please help.

    Hi

    When I boot i get a glimpse of the Xubuntu (12.04) splashscreen before getting "Checking battery State" message. However, I am not able to enter shell or do anything. The box won't react to any keyboard commands at all including ctrl+alt+f1, alt+f5, ctrl+alt+del, and any other similar commands. only a restart will do and therefor I am not able to reinstall or change the nvidia settings etc.

    I may boot into recoverymode and enter root shell, but then the file system is reported as beeing read only and I can't reinstall the nvidia driver. I have been looking into many threads similar to this one and tried many solutions but nothing helps.

    Main issue now is to enter shell from normall boot. Any help will do. Is there any boot command i can write in grub (e' option) that will make my box boot normally except it will omit graphic and use shell directly, asking for my login data?

    Solved this by using the grub 'e' option to change the boot command. Added word "text" just after "quiet splash" on second last line.

    Now working on solving the battery state issue
