mfillpot said:I do not think there are any distros that carry the proprietary driver by default due to licensing reasons. However from the command line you can put in the command "sudo apt-get install nvidia-current" to install the nvidia drivers from the online repos for either of those distros as Zorin is based upon ubuntu.
Since you have been using only ubuntu based distros I recommend trying some others out like fedora or magea to see if they are having the same problems.
I had some luck with Fedora, the screen won't tear when I get to the desktop, but the stock wifi won't work with it, BUT, I have a Roswell USB wireless adapter, Fedora sees it and I'm able to surf the net using this configuration. Now I've got to figure out how to install Fedora to a GPT hard drive and not screw it up. I am finally making progress though.
Thanks for the help,
