View Full Version : [ubuntu] Strange NVIDIA 8400 GS problem

April 18th, 2011, 12:39 AM
I am running Ubuntu 10.10 on my Dell laptop and have a very strange video card behaviour:
I was running ubuntu over a year on my laptop. And suddenly it started to froze. At first simple reboot helped. But then Nvidia initialization started to fail during boot. The message in Xorg.0.log is Failed to initialize the NVIDIA GPU at PCI:1:0:0. And strange thing about it is that it fails not every time. After successful initialization I have good performance of my video card. But it usually takes me 20-30 reboots to get it working. Have you any idea what's going on?

P. S. After I added repository with daily nvdia driver builds I have no frozes still have problem with booting.
