There might be some other drivers for your particular card. Click Apply Changes button to install the driver. my general experiences with Fedora and NVidia drivers are quite in line with the gtx 960 drivers article. It’s quite easy to install them on Fedora — at least it was for two NVidia cards I have/had for the last 10 years or so.

Can I disable Intel HD graphics and use Nvidia?
It’s very simple. First of all be sure you have 2 Video cards. Example 1 is intel and other one dedicated like nvidia or amd. Select and right click on INTEL integrated graphics and select disable.
Just for anyone who cares, I installed the drivers for my Nvidia 980ti by downloading the driver from Nvidia and then installing, using terminal in root, with sh. Proprietary (NVIDIA/AMD) drivers are known to be sometimes highly problematic, or completely unsupported. Radeon driver support is prebaked in the Qubes kernel (v4.4.14-11) but only versions give or take. Support for newer cards is limited until AMDGPU support in the 4.5+ kernel, which isn’t released yet for Qubes.
- The easiest way to remove cards is to move the front of the expansion card upwards a little and then move the rear up a little.
- If you have one of those dual PCI-Express x16 motherboards then you should consult your documentation on how to install the video card.
- There are usually restrictions on which slot to use if you only have one video card.
- If you’re installing two video cards then you’ll probably have to move some small circuit boards or jumpers around on the motherboard before installing the video cards.
- The motherboard and video card documentation will explain how to do it.
There are nuances after installation, maybe quite a few — and yes, the article definitely should at least name them, as you and other commenters pointed out. I would prefer an article on why you should prefer use AMD or Intel graphics rather than “how to install proprietary nvidia driver”.
I always struggled with video driver installation. There are no proprietary drivers available in the hardware manager. And each time I re-install Windows I’ll be letting Windows install drivers automatically like before. After reboot same thing as previously – windows doesn’t boot – black screen after loading circle. Use the menus on AMD’s website to find your graphics card model.
Pc Gaming 101: How To Upgrade Your Graphics Card
Using a laptop with a GeForce Go card, or connecting the sole display via DVI on a dual-head system sometimes results in the screen not receiving a picture. This is caused by the driver outputting video to the VGA port on the graphics card, instead of DVI. What package one would use depends on the version of Ubuntu one is using, and what graphics card one has installed. An alternative to Nouveau are the closed source NVIDIA drivers, which are developed by NVIDIA. This driver provides excellent 3D acceleration and video card support.
Instead, it offered me an open-source alternative, which, frankly, is one big fat joke. As you can see nvidia-driver-430 and nvidia-driver-390 are available for my GeForce GTX 1080 Ti card. So I select the first option to install nvidia-driver-430.
I had to go through the procedure twice, because I installed the wrong drivers the first time. Searching for ati graphics driver gives a lot of results. Please see the Graphic drivers & Compiz in the Jaunty review for more details.
