I am running a fresh installed of Ubuntu 16.04 on an ASUS X512FL laptop, with secure boot turned off in the BIOS settings, and with two graphic cards:
- NVIDIA MX250

I can’t seem to get the NVIDIA MX250 working (“nvidia-smi” not working) no matter what solutions I tried.
- I tried installing the open source driver from the "Additional Drivers" tab in the "Software & Updates". However, after restarting the Ubuntu won't boot and it stucks at the boot page. It shows message along this line:
The system is running in low-graphics mode Your screen, graphics cards, and input device settings could not be detected correctly. You will need to configure these yourself.
It seems that there is no “proprietary driver” listed here and I doubt this is the cause of the problem.
- I tried running the following command but still it doesn't solve the problem. The result is the same with the above method.
sudo apt-get purge nvidia* sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo ubuntu-drivers devices sudo ubuntu-drivers autoinstall
Does anyone have the same issue with NVIDIA MX250? Could you please instruct me on how to get the MX250 up and running on Ubuntu 16.04?
