Hi and welcome to AskUbuntu!

You seem to have way more drivers than you need. Try to remove them and then reinstall with:

sudo apt-get purge nvidia* 

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa
sudo apt update
sudo ubuntu-drivers autoinstall
  • not works ... , when i finish the autoinstall i get this : Errors were encountered during execution: /var/cache/apt/archives/xserver-xorg-video-nvidia-430_430.09-0ubuntu0~gpu19.04.1_amd64.deb E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1) – meVSnoob May 13 at 6:55
  • @meVSnoob try sudo dpkg --configure -a to resolve that issue – Turtle10000 May 13 at 7:00
  • i re-test but its same – meVSnoob May 13 at 7:02
  • @meVSnoob The reinsall did not work, so try to reconfigure dpkg with the command and then reinstall again. – Turtle10000 May 13 at 7:03
  • i don't have anything when i want to configure : postimg.cc/MnDRPZ1r – meVSnoob May 13 at 7:06

Remove older Nvidia driver:

sudo apt-get purge nvidia*

add the graphics-driver PPA

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa

Then update:

sudo apt-get update 

And install (and activate) the latest Nvidia graphics drivers First check the version you want on the graphics drivers PPA homepage

sudo apt install nvidia-driver-410

Note: you can change the version later:
