    So I've opened a case with Nvidia support.... their first level helpdesk couldn't fix it so waiting on additional support.

    Thanks - will inform what I find out!

    If he keeps installing nvidia-current then that's what he'll get.
    I still have to use "nvidia-current" drivers ...

    Either not GT730 or parser suggesting nVidia driver is wrong.
    Is it really 7300? Which is an old card.

    This says all the current new drivers 375 thru 384 should work for GT730. Newest probably only available in the ppa.
    https://www.geforce.com/drivers

    My 620 says this It does show 304 as an option as well as many others:

    Code:
    sudo ubuntu-drivers devices
    model    : GF108 [GeForce GT 620]
    vendor   : NVIDIA Corporation
    driver   : xserver-xorg-video-nouveau - distro free builtin
    driver   : nvidia-340 - third-party free
    driver   : nvidia-384 - third-party free recommended

    exactly. but they don't for some reason. i never could figure out the reason as i had to return the card before "return period" expired. and i never could get to command line, to run nvidia diagnostic program.

    i thought i made some mess because before radeon drivers were loading (i was trying to replace the old ATI card).

    edit: just went to search for the old post and inddeed found same error message.

    Code:
    Mar 23 17:41:21 tatie-desktop kernel: [   31.005799] NVRM: RmInitAdapter failed! (0x26:0x65:1292)
     Mar 23 17:41:21 tatie-desktop kernel: [   31.005814] NVRM: rm_init_adapter failed for device bearing minor number 0
     Mar 23 17:41:21 tatie-desktop kernel: [   31.005847] NVRM: nvidia_frontend_open: minor 0, module->open() failed, error -5
    My nvidia forums post: https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/t...kubuntu-14-04/
    note how it apparently works/worked with no issues on OpenSuse (last post)

    and here were my attempts at BIOS (it was updated to have the latest one and i tried some settings as i wrongly thought the voltage could be an issue): https://paste.ubuntu.com/25577957/

    Nvidia support was very helpfull and they tried their best, but we could not resolve the issue.

    ... just to keep this updated, been working with Nvidia support who is unsure what's going on too. They agree with you oldfred....

    Also have same issue when booting from Live USB with 16.04 with persistence to rule out it's not something with my OS... ... hoping to find fix as I am still engaged with Nvidia support.

    subscribed. i hope they figure it out. none of later drivers work, while nouveau works (somewhat).

    if this is resolved i could do a computer upgrade + i plan to add Linux on the Windows XP PC which now has this card, since more and more apps are now losing winxp support or their support is pathcy. i could then use WinXP for gaming and Linux for other stuff.
