View Full Version : [ubuntu] nVidia Graphics issues

April 23rd, 2009, 08:52 PM
Not sure if I'm the only one but I have a Compaq Presario Q50-215NR notebook with the nVidia Gforce 8200M graphics. When I use the proprietary nVidia drivers, version 180, I get a complete GUI lockup no matter what I do. It could take 5 minutes, it could take 30 seconds after logging in. However, downgrading to version 173 works flawlessly for me. This is all on the final 9.04 release.

This isn't a topic for help, more of a general statement and observation on my behalf. Hopefully this can help others with the same graphics card/computer.

If it was a cry for help I might have suggested trying the beta 185 driver. ;)
