I use sudo lsblk -fm to identify what is the partition where i have install #!

I guess that must be /dev/sda5, so i try with the command that you give me, but i have this error:

sudo grub-install /dev/sda5 && sudo update-grub

What i can do?

Hi there,

I come here looking for some help.

I Have Windows 8.1, i can boot the hard drive so i can access in a easy way to the grub to boot #!.
Now, i reinstall windows 8.1 and i lost the grub configuration, now when i try to enter to #! i have this error:

Entering rescue mode
grub rescue>  _

I can access to #! with the next list of commands:

> ls
> set boot=(hd0,partition)
> set prefix=(hd0,partition)/boot/grub
> insmod normal
> normal

But always i try to access to #! i have to put those commands.

By luck i don't have personal stuff on the laptop, so i just lose time.
I have no idea if any distribution recognized my card because i use only #! so i don't download others....

oh  8.(  I think that Debian Jessie  it's gonna help me.
Nop, in my bios i don't see nothing about Nvidia, or intel card.
I make something horrible, i want to delete all xorg files generated by Nvidia, and i delete something else, now my keyboard and mouse don't response. I have to reinstall #!.

You should *read* the instructions and then follow them.

sudo aptitude install linux-headers-$(uname -r|sed 's,[^-]*-[^-]*-,,')
sudo aptitude -t wheezy-backports -r install nvidia-kernel-dkms

This presumes you are using Debian wheezy (or #! Waldorf).

Now is probably a good time to read the bottom link in my signature...

EDIT: Run these and post the output of the second command:

sudo update-pciids
lspci -knn|egrep -iA2 'vga|video'

Thanks for your help.
I follow the guide of Debian, i get install nvidia drivers, but when i restart the laptop, the x didn't start, then i uninstall  all related to nvidia and i get back to the start.

I get this output:

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation Haswell-ULT Integrated Graphics Controller [8086:0a16] (rev 0b)
    Subsystem: Hewlett-Packard Company Device [103c:228d]
00:03.0 Audio device [0403]: Intel Corporation Haswell-ULT HD Audio Controller [8086:0a0c] (rev 0b)

I'm pretty sure that i have a nvidia 840M, because on windows work fine.

#12 Re: Help & Support (Beginners) » How to install Nvidia drivers » 2015-06-28 02:43:17

Thanks very much!
I'll check


I try to follow the guide of Debian wheezy, but i found two problems

1.- nvidia-detect don't detect my video card.
2.- When i follow the step to install the Version 340.65 (via wheezy-backports), i get an error:

sudo apt-get install -t wheezy-backports -r  nvidia-kernel-dkms
E: Command line option 'r' [from -r] is not known.

I have no idea what i can do.

Hello there!

I bought a new laptop and have a nvidia 840M. I looking for the driver but i found solutions that i don't want.
I found two topics with

On both topics, there are explanation to install drivers from the page of nvidia, but i understand that if you install that driver and then you update you kernel, you have to install again the driver. So, my question is: How i can install nvidia driver and keep update it?

Thanks you!

ps: i hope that you excuse me for my english.

Use this to list all services:

Disable unnecessary services with:

For the graphical desktop, look in ~/.config/openbox/autostart and /etc/xdg/autostart for programs you can remove.

System say " bash: chkconfig: command not found "   hmm

@emek:  You're English is good enough for me to understand; don't sweat it.  If you want a list of all packages on your system, open up a terminal window and enter the following:

dpkg -l > <path>package-list_YYYYMMDD.txt

This will generate a text file containing all of the packages currently installed on your system.  To see a list of loaded and running packages, use a program like htop, which is included with CrunchBang, or install gnome-system-monitor (which is nicer IMO) from the Debian repo.

I delete the <path> part and give a lot of program. The problem is the list don't show me the startup programs.
What i can do?

Before anything i like to say that my English is not very good, so i hope that you understand.

I noticed that my system it's become slow when start,  so i want to know what programs (services o scripts) start with him.

When the system start i see the list of program but i can't rich to write down them because it's so fast.

I know that you can get a list of program in the file but there isn't the programs i looking for. For example i see something about bluetooth when the system start, but is not in that list.

How i can get those programs?

Thanks in advance

I back again looking for help.
I use dictionary on Iceweasel because there are times i write in English (like this one). But i'm a native Spanish speaker so i use that dictionary too.
The big ( and very stupid, but annoying ) bug is every time i pulse the secondary bottom on the mouse the list of word is increase. I hope you understand me.
A picture is better to understand what i mean:


I wrote stupid word just for be more obvious....

Do you know how i can fix this annoying bug?

The guide is in Spanish, but is very simple to follow, just see the place where say "Solucionar el problema del Libc6"
Generally i don't comment no one topics (?) because I'm a beginner in linux, but i know that the method work. Good look
