The Dedicated GPU of my Laptop, an GTX 970M by NVIDIA is not showing up in lspci. I have installed the lastest nvidia-361 drivers and im running Ubuntu 16.04 using the 4.6 Kernel. Any ideas how to fix this?

I was able to fix this issue by adding a graphics driver ppa, and installing the lastest nvidia-367 drivers.

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install nvidia-367
  • Even if this is an old answer, it is still relevant today (for Ubuntu 21.04) -- just might need to use a different driver version (a guide is available on the PPA page).

Try sudo lshw instead. Sorry for the extremely short answer but choices being what they are in this case.....

    I already fixed this by installing the nvidia-367 drivers from ppa which fixed this issue.
