Machine: Asus Lamborghini VX2S (2007). 128GB SSD, 4G Memory, 1680x1050 screen.
Zorin OS 15.3 Ultimate installation runs good. After installation the machine boots properly with login screen.
After logging in there is just an empty screen with a working mouse pointer, nothing else is working than Alt Ctrl F1 for the login screen. No ‘right mouse key’, which is my ‘wonder key’.
The “safe graphics” option on installation to install the proper driver after installation leaves me with the same.
(The Lite version installs and runs better, but not good enough and unuseable.)
So I installed Ubuntu 20.04.1 LTS (Focal Fossa) and it installs and runs smoothly.
Just the default installation. It recognizes the NVIDIA chip.
So I ran a terminal command to find out what driver was installed:
lshw -c video
description: VGA compatible controller
product: G84M [GeForce 8600M GT]
vendor: NVIDIA Corporation
physical id: 0
bus info: pci@0000:01:00.0
width: 64 bits
capabilities: pm msi pciexpress vga_controller bus_master cap_list rom
configuration: driver=nvidia latency=0

Is there a solution to this problem?
