[Bug 1310551] Re: NVIDIA proprietary driver 331.38 from package nvidia-331 on Xubuntu 14.04 causes display to hang


Hi, I have same issue on MSI CX61 2OD with Nvidia Geforce 740M, Ubuntu
14.04 64 bits, driver 331.38 (both tested and updates versions). Display
hangs randomly when video is set to use Nvidia GPU, but it works fine
when switched to Intel GPU.

  NVIDIA proprietary driver 331.38 from package nvidia-331 on Xubuntu
  14.04 causes display to hang

Status in “nvidia-graphics-drivers-331” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  On 14.04 I am getting an issue on my Thinkpad T520 where running the
  "proprietary,tested" 331.38 driver causes my display to hang. It seems
  to stay that way until I switch to tty6 with ctrl+alt+f6 and then back
  to tty7 which has the display, this causes it to un-hang. This then
  happens back and forth. I am not sure but it might be triggered by
  clicking things, opening windows and such. The problem disappears when
  switching back to the open source driver.

  Should I try an even newer driver from nvidia, or is there any more
  information you need for troubleshooting?
