Installed BT5-R3 and installed NVIDIA drive and got "no screens" error. I have been trying to work on this myself for the past 2 weeks, and have not been able to resolve it, so I need some help. I have searched, read, and tried everything I could find, with no luck. From what I have gathered I guess it may have to do with intel and NVIDIA together? I tried some things that fixed others issues, but did not work for me.
Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2410M CPU @2.3GHz
NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M
Intel(R) HD Graphics Family
I didn't copy info from log, but did from the main error screen. I am just in the middle of work while switched over to Windows 7 on the same computer. Just thought I would post this up first in case someone had any new ideas to try. Will come back and post log, when I get a break.
Think like a criminal and act as a professional.
Just letting you know I am trying this out. Been behind on work. As of now it is not working but I am trying to figure it out. I'll update once I get somewhere with this. Thanks.
-- Did a little more work on this and was able to get it working all the way through, but still cannot change my screen resolution. Says I only have one option. I have been searching for fixes, but have not found anything yet. If anyone has any ideas please let me know. I will update if I find anything that works. Thanks.

At the end, what driver are you using? i915, nouveau? Nvidia propietary?..the driver will give you the feature to change resolution...Need more info...
Ive been trying also, but i realised that when you let nvidia automatically update the xorg.conf, it doesnt update it properly! It does not locate and update the xorg.conf to add your GPUs' PCI location!
What you have to do is locate Bus id of your graphics card,
find your gpu pci, it will have a bus id in front of it, looking similar to,Code:lspci
Now, edit your xorg.conf,Code:01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: nVdia corporation Device 1058 (rev a1)
scroll down until you see the device section, talking about your nvidia card, then in the last line of that device section, put the following line in, (marked in bold) like so,Code:nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf
CTRL + X, yes to save and changes.Code:Section "Device" Driver "nvidia" VendorName "NVIDIA Corporation" BusID "PCI:01:00:0"
its now updated to find the graphics card; no more "No Screens detected" error
I've tried :
apt-get install nvidia-current nvidia-current-modaliases nvidia-settings
Reboot then nvidia-xconfig
apt-get install compiz compiz-fusion-plugins-extra emerald simple-ccsm fusion-icon
#echo options nouveau modeset=0 | sudo tee -a /etc/modprobe.d/nouveau-kms.conft
# init 3
# sh <Nvidiafilename>.run
I've tried all the solutions that I could find on the internet but with no success i always get "no screen found" error
I am using Nvidia GT540m with intel i7 2nd Gen. with integrated graphics and I hope thats not the problem. I have BT5 r3 KDE x64
I will be very thankful to whoever find a solution to this problem.
See if noveau is blacklisted. Please, can you post the /etc/X11/xorg.conf complete. I want to see the monitor section..
do you try
This is my xorg file but have in mind that I have deleted the one from nvidia because of the "no screen found" error in order to load X.

At the moment I can see that I've installed the nvidia X settings but when I open it, it tells me that I am not using nvidia X driver and to enable it to type nvidia-xconfig. However when I do that I get the "no screen found error".
