Tried to install the nVidia driver, but it always reverts to the default driver.
The way I log in to do this is to enter recovery mode and run fsck and then resume. During these steps it complains about files having future times of less than a day, and then installs a 1.4mb file with the word "yelp" in the name and then it boots straight to the desktop without any login.
I installed elementary oS to boot straight to the desktop with no login. Now, every reboot brings me to a login screen.
What gets the computer to boot correctly is to enter recovery mode, run
fsck, and then resume.
fsck reports "Last mount time and write time is in the future (by less than a day, probably due to the hardware clock being incorrectly set)
Then it reports it is fixed - both the mount and write - and then it boots as it should.
The bios battery is relatively new, and seems to hold it's info. When I entered the CMOS - one time only - it was using a weird character for the dates year. But it hasn't done that again. Is this a bad battery, corrupt BIOS or something else?
