I Have Linux Mint 17 Cinnamon installed in my Laptop. I Have Nvidia GForce 610M Graphic. After installing Nvidia Drivers my Linux 17 Frequently Freezes Lot of Time. Every time it Freezes , I must Press CTRL+ALT+F1 and must do:

sudo service mdm restart

To Work Again.

Any suggestion to solve these Frequent Freezing problem ?


I've been having the same issue with my 660M. Last night I tried installing bumblebee and it seems to have alleviated the issue. I used this (very crude) tutorial. It will get you going in the right direction anyway.

Again, I can't 100% confirm that this is working, but it seems to be working. After following that, and restarting, I was on my laptop for a good 6 hours with no issue.
