I have a new laptop by Asus Republic Of gamers.
I have installed Ubuntu 14.04 on this laptop but now there is a problem with the video card not being even recognized by the system.
In Bios there is no option to activate/deactivate the video card.
There are a lot of workarounds on the internet but none of them mention how to make the VGA Controller to recognize this video card. I guess if I manage to make this work everything else should be easy to follow.
