    Default X.Org Server & nVidia problems

    I bought a new laptop and I'm trying to install BT5
    The notebook has 2 video cards, one Intel Integrated and one nVidia GT540M.

    Code:
    lspci | grep VGA
    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 2ng Generation Core  Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09)
    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVidia Corporation GF106 [GeForce GT 555M SDDDR3] (rev a1)
    I describe below what I did to install the drivers

    1) Downloaded the drivers from nVidia's web site

    2) Added these codes to disable nouveau drivers

    Code:
    blacklist vga16fb
    blacklist nouveau
    blacklist rivafb
    blacklist nvidiafb
    blacklist rivatv
    in that file

    Code:
    vi /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    3) Reboot my pc and installed nVidia driver

    Code:
    sudo sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86etc.run
    4) Reboot

    Code:
    sudo update-initramfs -u
    5) Startx

    Code:

    Anyone can help me?

    I also tried this method with a fresh installation but it does not work for me
    Code:
    prepare-kernel-sources
    cd /usr/src/linux
    cp -rf include/generated/* include/linux/
    Downloaded the driver here http://www.nvidia.com/object/unix.html
    Code:
    chmod +x /{nvidia_driver_name.run}
    chmod +w /boot/grub/grub.cfg
    gedit /boot/grub/grub.cfg
    type "nouveau.modeset=0" before "vga=791" (without quotes) and you have a line like this:
    Code:
    "...text splash nouveau.modeset=0 vga=791"
    chmod -w /boot/grub/grub.cfg
    Reboot
    After boot don’t type startx
    Code:
    cd /{path_of_your_driver}
    ./{nvidia_driver_name.run} --kernel-source-path='/usr/src/linux'
    Reboot
