Weird graphics problem on asus K55V

Hello guys, yesterday I installed arch and I have this weird problem when i startx:
This should be my openbox desktop
http://ompldr.org/vZmdudg
And this should be my tty
http://ompldr.org/vZmdueA
I have the nvidia drivers installed (my gfx card is nvidia 630m)
The other thing is when i run nvidia-xconfig - the xserver refuses to start, I can only startx if there isn't a xorg.conf. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated.

I still haven't found a solution yet. Could you point me to some solutions, or sources that could help me?

You have an Optimus laptop. See https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Bumblebee

Re: Weird graphics problem on asus K55V

Ok I tried that, it still gives me the same problem... Do I need to install the standart package, or the DKMS one?

If you run the stock kernel, it is sufficient to use the standard "nvidia" package. Mind that you should not install the nvidia-utils package, but the nvidia-utils-bumblebee one.

Re: Weird graphics problem on asus K55V

Ok I installed it, but the problem remains. I have followed the instructions from the wiki (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Bu … .2F_nvidia) and did the https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Bu … _Bumblebee (@bumblebeed) in rc.conf.
Btw here's a snippet from the log

It seems that linux doesn't seem to like this GPU. http://linuxhcl.com/browse/product?id=7779 https://bbs.archlinux.org/viewtopic.php?pid=1174569 So I just have to wait with my fingers crossed.
