    Just a guess here, but seems the Nouveau driver failed or it doesn't like the resolution you are using, I prefer the Proprietary Drivers from NVidia myself.

    I have the GT218M. I found "things" worked better after installing the nvidia drivers. It seems there are many instructions out there for this so I only purport this to have worked for me.
    Code:
    sudo apt-get install nvidia-current
    Then reboot.
    At this point the command below should return a value.
    Code:
     sudo /sbin/lsmod | grep nvidia

    Would I have to uninstall the current drivers?

    I didn't. I don't believe there's a need to.
