Re: Nvidia graphics card help on LM 19.2?

Hi,
You can boot to the older kernel by holding down Shift key as the system begins to boot (Note if your machine is UEFI then you hold down Esc key)
This will bring up the Grub boot menu, Select advanced and then select the older kernel and boot from that see if your nvidia works with that.

Ubuntu's servers are the ones that Mint uses. So I doubt you see any difference if you switch to Ubuntu. Please try what I said in my...

Hello charroo, Well Ubuntu is a fine distro, Not quite as user freindly as Mint. But since your asking on the Mint forums You will most likely get advice that would tell you to stay with MINT :) They will both work for you.
