I am pretty new to Linux and I am working to install Cuda, which requires the Nvidia Graphic Card to work. My laptop is Lenovo Y50-70 with a GTX960M card. My system is Ubuntu 14.04.
This is the result I got from the system:
jinchao@jinchao-laptop:~$ sudo lshw -C display [sudo] password for jinchao: *-display description: 3D controller product: NVIDIA Corporation vendor: NVIDIA Corporation physical id: 0 bus info: pci@0000:01:00.0 version: a2 width: 64 bits clock: 33MHz capabilities: pm msi pciexpress bus_master cap_list rom configuration: driver=nvidia latency=0 resources: irq:51 memory:d0000000-d0ffffff memory:a0000000-afffffff memory:b0000000-b1ffffff ioport:4000(size=128) memory:b2000000-b207ffff *-display description: VGA compatible controller product: 4th Gen Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller vendor: Intel Corporation physical id: 2 bus info: pci@0000:00:02.0 version: 06 width: 64 bits clock: 33MHz capabilities: msi pm vga_controller bus_master cap_list rom configuration: driver=i915 latency=0 resources: irq:47 memory:d1000000-d13fffff memory:c0000000-cfffffff ioport:5000(size=64)
I have tried several solutions described in many posts, like: Ubuntu and ASUS G750JM, GTX860M / Nvidia problems, How do I get Ubuntu to recognize my nvidia graphics card?, Why does Ubuntu 14.04 not recognize NVIDIA GeForce 310M hardware?, and many else. Unfortunately none of them works for me. I even try to install ubuntu 15.04, but the same problem still exists.
It seems my problem is a little different from most the post. In most post, at least when they run
sudo lshw -C display, the system can detect the correct model of the graphic card, while in my case, it only detects
product: NVIDIA Corporation.
Can anyone help me? Really apreciated !
