Precision m4800 laptop with k2100m card - Linux Mint won't take native drivers - X11 won't start

I'm not sure the OS can detect the video drivers.


you do a lspci and it shows up, but the OS doesn't know what it is.

you attempt to force various driver packages on it from the saucy repository, the nvidia-331 and others, but all you get is a message saying xserver can't start. 

you look at log and you get an error that it can't detect screens i guess because GLX won't start.

is anyone running linux on a 4800 with this k2100m card?  getting native graphics without going compatible.
