  • PLEASE don't post screenshots of text. The nvidia driver is not installed. Disable Secure Boot in BIOS and run sudo apt install nvidia-driver-510. Post output if there are some errors.

  • @Pilot6 it's already installed though The following packages will be REMOVED: linux-modules-nvidia-510-5.15.0-25-generic The following NEW packages will be installed: linux-modules-nvidia-510-5.15.0-40-generic Edit: Secure boot is already disabled and reinstalling the drivers didn't change anything
