    Ubuntu 13.04 - No graphic driver being used

    Hello

    I have a Lenovo Y 510p running Ubuntu 13.04. The system has both an integrated Intel Haswell graphic card and a dedicated nVidia one.

    sudo lshw -c display
    *-display UNCLAIMED
    description: VGA compatible controller
    product: GK107M [GeForce GT 750M]
    vendor: NVIDIA Corporation
    physical id: 0
    bus info: pci@0000:01:00.0
    version: a1
    width: 64 bits
    clock: 33MHz
    capabilities: pm msi pciexpress vga_controller bus_master cap_list
    configuration: latency=0
    resources: memory:c0000000-c0ffffff memory:90000000-9fffffff memory:a0000000-a1ffffff ioport:4000(size=128) memory:a2000000-a207ffff
    *-display UNCLAIMED
    description: VGA compatible controller
    product: Haswell Integrated Graphics Controller
    vendor: Intel Corporation
    physical id: 2
    bus info: pci@0000:00:02.0
    version: 06
    width: 64 bits
    clock: 33MHz
    capabilities: msi pm vga_controller cap_list
    configuration: latency=0
    resources: memory:c2000000-c23fffff memory:b0000000-bfffffff ioport:5000(size=64)


    I see none of them being used.
    I installed the intel drivers using the intel-linux-graphics-installer, still the same.
    I also tried installing the nVidia drivers but as I understand there are still issues in supporting the Optimus Drivers and it result was the unity env was not loading at all.

    Without the graphic cards I have a constant 30% CPU utilization from compiz.

    Any help is appreciated, thank you.

    If you decide to use the nVIDIA® GK107M as primary for X, Unity, &c., you'll almost certainly need the Packages jockey-text, nvidia-current, and nvidia-settings; xserver-xorg-video-nouveau will not work with certain nVIDIA® GPU's. There may also be some BIOS/UEFI settings to make that I don't know about from the system description to date.

    The jockey-text program is needed to properly configure the nVIDIA® drivers and settings applications for your GK107M.

    Update: I ran across a Thread describing a situation with hardware similar to yours: "Use ONLY nVidia discrete graphics on Optimus laptop N56VZ Ubuntu 13.04." The Bumblebee Project™ is supported at Launchpad™.

    The easiest way to do it would be to install 'buntu 13.10 and then install bumblebee package (which in the repos beginning with 13.10).

    If using 13.04, I would install a 3.11 kernel and use xorg-edgers PPA ( https://launchpad.net/~xorg-edgers/+archive/ppa ) to get the intel GPU working. Next, I would add x-swat PPA to use nvidia-319 driver ( https://launchpad.net/~xorg-edgers/+archive/ppa)
    And finally, I would install bumblebee from the repo: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Bumblebee
