Problem updating nvidia drivers
Now I’m writing all the methods that worked for me to fix this problem. We just disabled the Nouveau kernel display server, so currently there is no UI to work with. Remember you’ll need root access to install this driver.I assume that you’ve updated the system after OS installation. Use == /sys/devices/pci00/00.0/00.0 ==modalias : pci:v000010DEd00001380sv00001043sd000084BEbc03sc00i00vendor : NVIDIA Corporationmodel : GM107 [Ge Force GTX 750 Ti]manual_install: Truedriver : nvidia-340 - distro non-freedriver : nvidia-driver-390 - distro non-free recommendeddriver : xserver-xorg-video-nouveau - distro free builtin The above method didn’t work for me. First, let’s download the desired NVIDIA Driver from their official website. Save the file into your home directory or downloads directory. To move to downloads directory from home directory, just use this command in your terminal: After rebooting, I got super panicked. But now we’ll stop this current display server so that we can install the NVIDIA driver.
Nvidia has issued a security alert for the previous versions of its display drivers.
The updated version, at the time of this writing, is 430.64.
You can check your driver version by opening the Nvidia Control Panel from your system tray or Start menu in Windows.
Last night I installed Ubuntu 18.04 Bionic Beaver Linux on my desktop PC by completely whipping out Windows 7 OS.
So after proper Linux installation, the first problem I faced was a low-resolution display, which was totally annoying me given that I have a NVIDIA Geforce GTX 750 TI graphics card installed in the machine.
