Best Answer

First option is to go into software and updates. When you are in software and updates, go to the additional drivers page. Wait for a second until it has loaded and see if there are any options there.

The second option is to download it through the terminal. First of all, check the exact graphics card with:

ubuntu-drivers devices

Find the recommended driver and type the command:

sudo apt install nvidia-(driver-number)

Or type the command:

sudo ubuntu-drivers autoinstall
