I have a laptop with GeForce 820M and the Intel HD.
but i never can make the nvidia turn on, i think, Sorry im new in ubuntu. Help me please i try to install the drivers sudo apt-get install nvidia-361.
I read in some other posts that i must have in the nvidia config an option called: PRIME or something like that but i never get it. I also try to get the drivers in aditional drivers but never see the GeForce or something like that.
I have installed the drivers but in config i only get this: Nvidia X settings
One more Thing how can i know, if the graphic card is with the right driver, or if its working. PD: Sorry for my bad english.

    Did you try going to "Additional Drivers" and selecting your the proprietary drivers for your GPU? Are you sure Ubuntu isn't using your graphics card? Install inxi with "sudo apt-get install inxi", and then run "inxi -G" from terminal. – negusp Nov 10 '16 at 0:29
