My video card was working perfectly. I followed the suggestions here and did
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa
and I used “Software & Updates” to upgrade my driver from 470 to nvidia-driver-530 (proprietary) .
After rebooting I get an error “Failed to start detect the available GPUs and deal with any system changes” and the generic motherboard video card is being used.
No devices were found
sudo lshw -c video
shows VGA compatible controller but lists my card underneath
