I've tried everyway to install drivers for NVIDIA and get it working but my laptop still insist on using Intel Haswell integrated GPU.
Here's a what I've tried so far:
First I've tried to install latest drivers from graphics-driers PPA:
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install nvidia-367
I was hoping that it could get my graphics card to work but it didn't.
Then I downloaded
.run file from offical nVidia website but this installer gives me "The distribution-provided pre-install script failed!" error. Still don't know why it gives me such error.
Last thing I tried was after installing nvidia-367:
sudo apt-get install nvidia-prime sudo prime-select nvidia reboot
As you can guess, it didn't work either.
sudo lshw -C display command gives me following output:

I'm using Ubuntu 16.04 and my graphics card is nVidia GT 840M
