I tried to follow what seen in this topic, as the model is similar, with no success.
Even before installing,
sudo ubuntu-drivers devices never returned output, nor in Software & Updates the video card was ever mentioned
Laptop Acer V3-572G-701f
NVIDIA GEFORCE 820M
Disabled secure boot
nvidia-driver-440 via apt

sudo update-initramfs -u and rebooted, still
~$nvidia-smi NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn't communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running.
Settings starts up and prime-selects returns “nvidia”, but
ERROR: NVIDIA driver is not loaded
ERROR: Unable to load info from any available system

Thank you in advance.
