Driver 390.42 installation failed - Unable to load the 'nvidia-drm'

You have a 1050Ti in your notebook, I guess for a purpose?
Furthermore, the external display connectors are likely wired to the nvidia gpu, so without a driver you won’t have access to those.
Since you’re using debian, you would have to configure PRIME manually:

I’m not sure if it worth to mention but I’m using desktop here with 2 external display connected… and it is working fine! But anyway I will take a look at the PRIME configuration that you mentioned… And just to be sure… should I stick to 440 version drive (which would be needed to install manually) or follow the NVIDIA-detect suggestion? and Thanks for the quick reply.

Rather use the 440 driver, better support for notebooks, better Vulkan support.

Hi,
I’m facing the same issue here and just can’t find a solution. I have been trying for about a week or so, and nothing seems to work.
