No matter how many times I re-install my driver it will be uninstalled after restart.

  1. I select and install the correct driver using Device Driver Manager by Mint

  2. I restart as prompted

  3. It comes back up without my driver and switches to some "versa" driver I've never heard of

3a. Also, I got this error

Unknown driver error. Please remove before installing drivers with DDM

I am unsure what that means. How do I comply with what it is asking?

This question came from our site for Ubuntu users and developers.

    
Did you tried to remove the drivers with DDM? –  Braiam Apr 5 at 13:46
    
No I didn't, I don't know what that means... –  wilhelm314 Apr 6 at 15:45
    
Mint is off-topic on Ask Ubuntu because it isn't official. Unix & Linux supports it though. –  Seth Apr 6 at 17:13
    
Not versa but VESA, which is a well known standard. –  Pavel ┼áimerda Apr 6 at 17:18
    
Please give some details about how you have installed your drivers. Generally speaking, you are better off installing binary packages (debs) than doing a source based install, because all the configuration will be taken care of. Which method did you use? –  Faheem Mitha Apr 6 at 20:28
