Good afternoon, in need of some help resolving why I cannot get the NVIDIA GPU working on this laptop (Dell Inspiron 15 Gaming 7567) configured with Intel HD 630 and NVIDIA GTX1050ti.
I had taken the SSD from my other laptop running an older 760M GPU, after installing it in this machine I had run ‘apt update’ and ‘apt upgrade’ to ensure the correct driver would be installed, it automatically installed driver version 470 but I’m unable to get it to work (was on 390 for the 760M). Since then I’ve also run ‘Refresh OS’ which also has automatically installed driver version 470 - but still no luck.
