I have HP Elite 800 G2 desktop with Ubuntu 16.04.3 64 bit with NVIDIA Graphic card "GeForce GT 730".

After getting latest updates from Ubuntu sites. The system is running in low-graphics mode after reboot. I have tried all previous community answers using apt-get or direct NVIDIA driver for all version installation but nothing works.

The error in Xorg.0.log is given below:

Can anyone help me to configure NVIDIA Graphics card for Ubuntu display settings?


I recently installed Ubuntu 16.04.3 64 Bit. And configured my Nvidia GPU by following this guide. Before you perform installation, remove all the nvidia components by using this command: sudo apt-get purge nvidia*

Note: It is recommended to have latest version of kernel installed for drivers to work properly. Here is the guide to upgrade kernel for Ubuntu. On this site they have mention the link to see latest available kernels. You can try the latest one. Mine is 4.14.0. On this, the drivers works fine.

After installation, you can manage your GPU setting from NVIDIA X Server Settings. Type sudo nvidia-settings in terminal to access it.

If, in case above solution doesn't work, try downloading drivers form Here . The version you mentioned in the heading is available. But see to that before installing this driver, you remove the previously available components using sudo apt-get purge nvidia*

Hope this answer will solve your problem.
