    Hello i have a laptop whit Linux 10.1 on it and i just used acronis true image to copy it to another one everything looks fine but when i run command startx i get an error:
    (= Log file: "/var/log/Xorg.0.log",
    (= Using config file: "/etc/X11/xorg.conf"
    and Nvidia graphic card error that i know its because of laptop's graphics drivers(different gpus ) and display setting are different can someone help?

    you will need to install the correct Nvidia Driver for your Card.

    could you from the command line issue the following command and post the results here.
    Code:
    lspci
    Wireless script

    Remove the proprietary drivers from the source laptop before you clone it.

    uninstalling the graphics driver isn't an option because the laptop is a production workstation and its currently in use.

    Hi again,
    show the output of this command, the lspci did not show the graphics card model .. we need to know that to guide you to the right driver.
    Code:
    sudo lshw -C video
    The correct driver can be installed form the command line , but we need to know what card it is.
