I bought a latest laptop (MSI LEOPARD GP66-10UG). It has both intel and rtx3070 grapics cards. I installed the latest nvidia drivers from ppa repository. There was no error in installation but the graphic card is not shifting from intel to nvidia.
nvidia-smi gives the following result:
NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn’t communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running.
ERROR: NVIDIA driver is not loaded
