nVidia 765M leads to black screen with blinking cursor at top-left corner
Finally I got a custom Dell XPS laptop and installed the latest hispter.
Everything is Okay except the nVidia video card.

It is misconfigured and categorized into 'Other' in 'Device Driver Utility'.
After adding 'BusID PCI:1:0:0' into xorg.conf.
Gdm goes black with blinking cursor at top-left corner but other processes continue running.
I can here the login sound, and are able to shutdown system with "Ctrl-Alt-Del".
The current nvidia driver cannot get screen depth, I use the latest official one(319.60) instead.
Thanks in advance.

Finally I figured it out.
NVIDIA Optimus Technology requires only Windows 7 or later.
Note that the list of supported GPU products is provided to indicate which GPUs are supported by a particular driver version. Some designs incorporating supported GPUs may not be compatible with the NVIDIA Linux driver: in particular, notebook and all-in-one desktop designs with switchable (hybrid) or Optimus graphics will not work if means to disable the integrated graphics in hardware are not available. Hardware designs will vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, so please consult with a system's manufacturer to determine whether that particular system is compatible.
Bumblebee project is the solution for linux.
Will you have any plan to fork it?
