Would like to test if my system would run on nvidia graphics card.
Here is the hardware:
lspci -k | grep -EA2 'VGA|3D' 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 4th Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 06) DeviceName: Onboard IGD Subsystem Lenovo 4th Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller 01:00.0 3D controller: NVIDIA Corporation GF117M [GeForce 610M/710M/810M/820M / GT 620M/625M/630M/720M] (rev a1) Subsystem: Lenovo GeForce 800M Kernel driver in use: nouveau
Unfortunately, additional drivers detect only the intel hardware:
sudo ubuntu-drivers list intel-microcode
Somewhere on this site, for GF800 series, it was recommended to install the nvidia-358 version.
I know I can try to install them this way:
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install nvidia-358
I know people had black screen problems after install. I would like to know what to do, to be able to eventually get back to current, free driver, if something fails.
I dont have any grub menu while loading. It is a single-boot machine.
Help highly appreciated.
