I used $ sudo lshw -C display which dispalayed the following :

But when I am using $ nvidia-smi, it is showing nvidia-smi: command not found

How to fix this? I think may be NVIDIA drivers are not installed properly. WHat can I do to fix this?

    Your exact question is not clear. Do you want to know the GPU name is being used or you want to fix NVIDIA driver issue? – M.A.K. Ripon Dec 12 '17 at 4:35
  • Both actually. I couldn't know which GPU is being used. But as nvidia-smi is not working, I guess i need to fix the NVIDIA driver. Please help. Thanks in advance. – em_bis_me Dec 12 '17 at 4:39

    For check use this link askubuntu.com/questions/68028/… and for the driver error use this link askubuntu.com/questions/902636/… – M.A.K. Ripon Dec 12 '17 at 4:42

On terminal:

lspci -v |egrep "VGA|Display"

The one that has "[VGA Controller]" at the end is the one used by system.
