I have a problem with my laptop computer (Packard bell E Note SB85) with graphics board NVIDIA 8600M and screen Diamond view 17 " .With nouveau-dri driver, XORG says to me: no screen found even with the file 10-monitors conf and 20-nvidia.conf. By deactivating nomodeset, XORG starts but he bug me the computer. With driver NVIDIA, XORG says Could not open the open device file /dev/ nvidia0 (Input / output to error) .
The log about Xorg:
Actually, my computer starts only with Vesa. Between nouveau-driv and Nvidia, I well deleted everything rebuild the image with mkinitcpio, but nothing to make. Thank you
Does your computer have any other operating system?
If so does it work?
I have a doubt that you might have a hardware error.
