  1. Hi man, i need your help..

    I have a problem with temperature of my dell inspiron 14r 5420. I’ve tried installing the NVIDIA drivers and always give the same error in Ubuntu 14.10 (You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver. Please edit your X configuration file (just run `nvidia-xconfig` as root), and restart the X server.). My temperature is between 71 and 72 degrees. I have already installed the Intel graphics driver and remains the problem, can you help me?

    • Hi, sorry for long response
      I don’t have 5420 now, but as far as I remember, for this nvidia you can try to install http://bumblebee-project.org/ to make your nvidia work.

      I remember I install this driver to make battery life last longer.

      Hope it’s help you
