    Question Ubuntu 12.04/12.10 - Freeze at login screen, GPU lockup

    Hi guys!

    Tried to run both these versions, but non of them works, getting the same problem every time. When I reach the login screen, the comp just locks immediately, mouse moving every 5 seconds. Sometimes I get "GPU lockup" after 15 seconds

    Hardware:

    i7 3770k @ 4.5ghz
    Nvidia 580GTX
    Intel 520 240GB SSD
    Asus Sabertooth Z77

    Any tips on how to solve this problem? Searched the whole internet but couldn't find a solution, seems like it is a gpu driver problem.. Anyway to update the drivers?
