Unable to change graphic driver Reward $2
Created by Aravi, 82 days ago, 524 views

System Ubuntu 16.04.3 with Windows x configured
NVidia 940mx
Intel i5

Problem: not able to change x.org driver for Nvidia. Only showing waiting for media.

I have also tried in tty1.

I have also installed NVidia GeForce driver 384.

I have to change or update the driver because I have problem of video lag and system crash. I cant use hardware acceleration.

>> 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation Device [8086:5916] (rev 02) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])



Open up pcidatabase.com and check that 8086 is Intel Vendor ID, and 5916 is unknown Device ID from that vendor.



I do not have NVidia card to play with, but search effort using keywords [8086:5916] says upgrading kernel will solve the problem, as mentioned here:

This one descibes in detail for various workaround for a different Acer model, probably worth to check:

hi try this
1 - Donwload the old "Ubuntu software center" in the new "Ubuntu software".

2 - Restart your computer (to remove the "waiting to install")

3 - Open the .deb file with the just installed "Ubuntu software center"

4 - Install it

Hi @chakramed

I am not getting why you want me to remove software centre and replace with old one? The problem is with additional driver.

I have included PPA. Driver is installed via apt-get update and apt-get install NVidia-384.


I am not able to change it. The exact problem when I type to change in terminal. It says is, " waiting for media" something bla bla bla. I don't got it.

Sorry I need answer in details. I am new linux user.

@Aravi

a quick search resulted in some problems with proprietary driver and to replace with another version from PPA, which you did. Another workaround includes downgrade driver version, but that's rare.

Try running this command:


lspci -vnn | grep -i VGA


or


sudo lshw -c video

Please copy-paste the output here.

@Aravi:



above links I quoted above mentioned about updating kernel, probably simple "apt dist-upgrade" will do.



prior to that, you might want to fix error shown in your apt update using this command line:



sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 'pubkeys'



where 'pubkeys' is the number in the end of GPG error (your screen shot)



Also, your screenshot recommends bumblebee, and the links quoted above suggested that bumblebee might works. Go on try that.



Try also editing your /etc/default/grub to set nomodeset during boot the following line:



GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset"



Check here for info: https://askubuntu.com/questions/716957/what-do-the-nomodeset-quiet-and-splash-kernel-parameters-mean. Basically: nomodeset - tells the kernel to not start video drivers until the system is up and running

Hi @ha14 and
@thsigit

Looks like I have to make iso cd and try to insert and see.

I will let you both know later.

thsigit81 days ago

hmmm ... that will be a neat trick in case you will need to reinstall later.


Alternatively you can simply edit /etc/apt/sources.list and comment (#) like the following line:


# deb cdrom:[Xubuntu 17.04 _Zesty Zapus_ - Release amd64 (20170412)]/ zesty main multiverse restricted universe


(I am using Zesty)
