Thread: Intel OnBoard Graphics + Nvidia Card

    Default Intel OnBoard Graphics + Nvidia Card

    Hi everybody,
    I just started using openSuse 13.1 and have some issues with my graphics adapter (Geforce GTX 660). The "noveau" driver wasn't stable at all; after ~10 minutes the screen just freezed except the cursor. Installing the proprietary driver helped first, but after the second restart the system wasn't able to start X anymore ("AddScreen/ScreenInit failed for gpu driver 1 -1"). Here my Xorg logfile:

    http://paste.opensuse.org/65628000

    Seems to me like the on-board graphics are interfeering with the graphics card. However, I'm still quite new to Linux and kind of stuck here. Any hints what I can do?
    Thanks!

    In the BIOS settings there should be an option to disable the onboard graphics, look for that to start with.

    Thanks hank_se, disabling the internal graphic-adapter solved the issue.
