Nvidia whiteout /blackout problem fix & driver install guide

Nvidia whiteout /blackout problem fix & driver install guide

Postby Wolfman » Thu Jul 19, 2012 8:31 am

Hi all,

you should read the whole thread if you want to install Nvidia drivers!.

Problem:

The screen goes white or black (Zorin 6 & 8) when more than one window is open, this is something to do with Compiz, the windows turn white /black when more than one window is open and you try to switch between them.

Fix:

Open CompizConfig Settings Manager > Effects > Animations > Focus Animation > Highlight where it says "Focus Effect" - "Dodge" > Edit > Focus Effect > Select "None" > Close

Important 1:

Before commencing with the Nvidia driver installation, please check that you are installing the correct drivers for your type of Nvidia graphics card, some older Nvidia cards may require "Legacy Support" (driver version 173 for example) and are possibly not supported by any of the 304/319/331 drivers listed below!:

Important 2:

Even though your drivers may show in the lists, this is not to say that you won't have problems so make a note of the driver package name you are installing and the corresponding removal command listed below!. Follow the instructions for removal in "Recovery Mode" which are also listed below!.

http://www.nvidia.com/page/support.html

To find out what Nvidia card you have, open a terminal (Ctrl + Alt + t) and paste the following command:

Code: Select all
lspci


This will give you a readout like the pic below and it is in the "VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GF108 [GeForce GT 430] (rev a1)" part we are interested in:
vga info.jpg



Please copy and paste the following commands according to the driver you wish to install in a terminal, (Ctrl + Alt + t) press enter after the command and put in your password which WILL NOT SHOW while you type!. And see the list of supported cards at the bottom of this post which are listed by version number in numerical order!. Your graphics card may show up in more than one list!.

For the recommended version (nvidia-current):

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install nvidia-current



For version 173 (older cards)

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install nvidia-173



For version 304.

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install nvidia-304



For the version 319.

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install nvidia-319



For version 331.

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install nvidia-331



(The above commands will auto-install any necessary dependencies!)

Then restart your PC!.

It is important to restart your PC in "Recovery Mode" and select "Network" (Cable Only!!) and then run "DPKG" in case there are any updates and after you have done the updates (Mesa, Xorg etc!), restart your PC with Ctrl + Alt + Del, don't click on "Resume" !!.

If the above doesn't work for whatever reason, as soon as you reboot your PC, start Synaptic > Reload > Mark All Upgrades > Apply and then restart your PC again!. (Yes! I know!!)

If your menu is also going blank when it shouldn't, right click the Zorin menu button > Edit > System Tools > Administration > and take out the tick next to "Nvidia X Server Settings.

Removing Drivers:

To remove the Nvidia drivers, open a terminal and paste this command and then restart and update your system afterwards:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get remove nvidia-current nvidia-settings


Or depending on what drivers you have installed, lets use version 304 as our example:

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get remove nvidia-304 nvidia-settings-304


Ideally the above command should be done at root level in the recovery menu, start your PC in "Recovery Mode" and activate "Network" (a network cable is required!) then click on "root" and enter the command, restart your PC with Ctrl + Alt + Del, don't click on "Resume"!.

It is important to restart your PC again in "Recovery Mode" and select "Network" (Cable Only!!) and then run "DPKG" as there will be updates and after you have done the updates (Mesa, Xorg and possibly the "nouveau-firmware" for GeForce6 and above etc!), restart your PC with Ctrl + Alt + Del, don't click on "Resume" !!.

If the above doesn't work for whatever reason, as soon as you reboot your PC, start Synaptic > Reload > Mark All Upgrades > Apply and then restart your PC again!. (Yes! I know!!)


Alternative removal options:

Another way to remove the drivers you don't want is to boot into an older kernel and still use a normal graphical interface to do so as the drivers you last installed will only affect the main last kernel you updated. Do the following:

Boot your PC and at the Grub menu, select "Advanced Options" (2nd in the list):
grub.1.jpg
grub.1.jpg (35.28 KiB) Viewed 4405 times


Then select "Previous Linux Versions" and select an older kernel and you should be able to boot normally into that:

Once your PC has started, you use the terminal or Synaptic package manager to remove and install a different driver and don't forget to restart and update again once restarted!.
