GPU not recognized by blender

I’m trying to render through my GPU in blender but in Edit>Preferences>System under CUDA I get a message saying “No compatible GPUs found for Cycles Requires NVIDIA GPU with compute capability 3.0.”

My GPU is a GeForce GTX 670 which according to NVIDIA’s website is compute 3.0 compatible. My driver is nvidia-driver-470 version 470.161.03-0ubuntu0.22.04.1and I’m running a fairly fresh install of Linux Mint 21.1. and blender 3.0.1 and im quite new to both.

I have tried the 3 GPU drivers available in driver manager (NVIDIA 390.157 and xserver-xord-video-nouveau 1:1.0.17-2build1) someone recommend I activate openGL and openCL I think I have done this but am not sure how to check.

I have posted on the Blender Stack Exchange and they told me to try here. So hoping someone can point me in the right direction.
