I recently downgraded from 14.10 to 14.04 due to these bugs:

  [HP Pavilion dv8t-1200 CTO Entertainment Notebook PC] Freezing in
  Ubuntu 14.04 (NVIDIA GT216M [GeForce GT 230M]

Status in “linux” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Since installing Ubuntu 14.04, onto a HP Pavilion dv8t-1200 (WF681AV)
  laptop, the unity desktop is freezing a couple of times each day.
  Typically at first, I'm able to move my mouse-cursor, but after a few
  seconds that freezes up too.

  WORKAROUND: Use nvidia 331.
