Hi, I am trying to make an old GTX 550 ti card on Ubuntu 20.04.
If I use
lspci | grep VGA
I can see the card
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GF116 [GeForce GTX 550 Ti] (rev a1)
and also my monitor is connected to it so the card works, but the driver doesn’t seem to be working correctly.
In the Software&Updates window I can see that its installed ( the version 390) but if I do
It says that I don’t have a driver.
What I have tried until now:
uninstall the driver with
sudo apt --purge remove nvidia*
and install the older version 390 (by default it was 460) which did nothing.
I tried to install the version 340 but it caused a black screen after reboot.
I have seen this thread so I tried creating the xorg.conf file, but it did nothing.
I also ran the report
nvidia-bug-report.log (1.3 MB)
Also I didn’t want to blindly try everything in that link as I don’t completely understand it and I don’t know if it applies to my case.
If anyone could point me on the right direction to solve this problem I would appreciate it.
