Hybrid graphics nvidia drivers for Asus U43JC

One of the ASUS U/UL series Linux users has found a way to enable the nvidia drivers by blacklisting the intel chip:

[ubuntu] ASUS N61Jv / N71Jv / N82Jv / UL50Vf anyone? - Page 3 - Ubuntu Forums


There's a workaround for some people. I have the u43jc and you can use the 320m by installing the nvidia drivers, blacklisting the intel chip and rebooting. If you don't disable the intel chip, you'll get stuck on the Checking battery state...

Only problem is that the 310 is the only one running and the battery gets slurped up pretty quick.

If it doesn't work, you can boot in safe graphics and reset everything.

I guess we'll just have to watch closely for updated nv drivers
