I have an ASUS laptop. It has a Core i5 CPU with integrated graphics and a discrete NVIDIA 310M GPU.
I have Windows 7 installed and I'm sure that everything is working. Today I installed Debian 7.1. I'm using GNOME GUI and Xorg.
I installed the Nvidia drivers following this guide: Click!
I thought everything went OK, because I had no errors during the guide. After second reboot I was stucked at black blank screen with blinking cursor. After pressing Ctrl + Alt + F1 I figured out that I got "No devices detected." error with the following error log (excerpted from here):
[ 79.779] (II) LoadModule: "nvidia" [ 79.779] (II) Loading /usr/lib/xorg/modules/drivers/nvidia_drv.so [ 79.779] (II) Module nvidia: vendor="NVIDIA Corporation" [ 79.779] compiled for 4.0.2, module version = 1.0.0 [ 79.779] Module class: X.Org Video Driver [ 79.779] (II) NVIDIA dlloader X Driver 295.59 Wed Jun 6 21:21:24 PDT 2012 [ 79.779] (II) NVIDIA Unified Driver for all Supported NVIDIA GPUs [ 79.779] (--) using VT number 8 [ 79.783] (EE) No devices detected. [ 79.783] Fatal server error: [ 79.783] no screens found
So I was trying to google the answer and I figured out that I should add
to the "Device" section in xorg.conf file. After I added this line I rebooted and I got again black screen, but without blinking cursor this time. It's too long to post, so it's hosted here.
I couldn't find a error, but still nothing happens.
I figured out that if I remove xorg.conf file, the system boots but Xorg is not turned on.
This is my config file.
What can I do to resolve this problem?
