NVIDIA drivers not working on an old Lenovo laptop.

Please forgive my terrible formatting, this is being typed from a phone.

I currently have a Lenovo Ideapad (exact model unknown) with Nvidia discrete graphics. The Nvidia kernel module fails to load after installing Nvidia drivers, and running ‘nvidia-xconfig’. The card is a G96CM [ GeForce GT 130M ] according to lspci. Does anyone know what I should do?

Edit: I have tried mhwd -a. Still broken.

Funny, I have a fairly old configuration for my T61, running fine:

$ inxi -Gz
Graphics:  Device-1: NVIDIA G86M [Quadro NVS 140M] driver: nvidia v: 340.108 
           Display: x11 server: X.Org 1.20.8 driver: nvidia resolution: 1680x1050~60Hz 
           OpenGL: renderer: Quadro NVS 140M/PCIe/SSE2 v: 3.3.0 NVIDIA 340.108 

But today, when trying to test today's RC ISO, I seemed to hang getting to my desktop on the live ISO.

:+1: Welcome to Manjaro! :+1:

Please read this:

and post some more information so we can see what's really going on. Now we know the symptom of the disease, but we need some more probing to know where the origin lies...
