But even if you disable all components but the graphics driver, you will get some extra services and Telemetry installed on the system.
One of the things that users who are concerned about this increase in components may do is install only the graphics driver, and that without running the Nvidia installer at all.
First, you'll want to know the name of your graphics card: to see all connected graphics devices.
(The latter will show the recommended version.) The manufacturer might recommend specific drivers or a specific version of the driver. Note the difference between the driver they recommend (the long-lived branch) and their latest release.
Thought everything was all fine, until I booted Overwatch and everything was distorted. I went ahead and tried to download the correct drivers off both Dell website and Nvidia website, but every time I try to install, it says the graphics card is not detected. It seems that after installing the latest nvidia update through Geforce Experience, after restart my games were lagging.
So I went to the game options and noticed that it was using the Intel HD graphics card, and not my GTX 960m. I tried looking to do a system restore on windows 10, but there were no restore pointed created automatically. did a bios update to A11 from dell card is in my computer and my monitor is plugged into it. Under the device manager tab, the GTX 960M tab was marked with a yellow sign, going into the details section it gave a message that the device stopped working.
When it comes to drivers for Nvidia graphics cards, most computer users probably either use the drivers that are included with their operating system, or install a driver package for the card from Nvidia. It includes the driver that is required, and then other components that may or may not be required depending on how the computer is used.
Please let us know how this answer could be more useful.You can now use ubuntu-drivers to get the list of packages for each driver, and then install the packages using apt-get.For example: With a Ge Force 7600, after installation of the nvidia driver in Ubuntu 14.04 some text and icons are rendered incorrectly, sometimes content is displayed distorted in a triangle instead of a rectanglar window, and X resets intermittently.Often screen resolutions on offer are far lower than those offered with the open source driver.The NVIDIA binary driver seems to be very weak at reliably probing this information from the monitor and relies on additional information in If you have problems with low resolution icons, shortcuts and menus placed strangely, and especially desktop size not matching your monitor, this may be due to a bug with multiple monitor setup.I have the same GPU but previous driver version, I've been reading through internet and it seems the new driver release is full of bugs, fps drops, etc. please help, as i must decide to return the brand new graphics card as it doesnt work with a dell xps 8700 or i must try load windows 7 and see if that works... After installing the update it worked like normal, albeit being an update from august.
