Was the icon for installing Mint still visible, and if it was, did you try clicking it to start the installation?

Re: Problems with Mint 17.3 and Nvidia GTX 1050

What do you mean? Reinstalling again the Nvidia drivers or the linux distro? Reinstall Mint. Mint 17 is only supported until 2019. You were not able to boot the Mint Installation USB for Mint 18 and 19. Did you see the Welcome screen with the menu? If yes, diid you try the suggestions in these Rele...

Re: Problems with Mint 17.3 and Nvidia GTX 1050

Installing the Nvidia driver from Nvidia’s website for your laptop with hybrid graphics (intel+nvidia) is only OK if you plan on only using the Nvidia GPU. If won’t work correctly if you switch to the Intel GPU, because that particular Nvidia driver installation will overwrite the Intel OpenGL libra...

Re: Veriton-X680G - Intel Core i5 650 - Display Drivers Issue

I assume the monitor has a 22 inch screen size, with VGA and DVI-D video ports and the monitor’s native resolution is 1680x1050 , not 1600x1050 ? The monitor’s EDID can’t be read on the VGA port, so the native resolution isn’t used. If there is a DVI or HDMI port on the PC, then you can try using th...

I hope lower score is better. Unfortunately, higher is better :( . I was surprised by the lackluster score when using AMD graphics, and I don’t have a good explanation except that perhaps PRIME GPU Offloadin g doesn’t work well or doesn’t work well with your hardware. The glmark2 score is obtained ...

Re: How do you switch beetween hybrid graphic cards?

I think some of my reasoning has been incorrect. I came to some conclusions from testing on a laptop with hybrid graphics ( intel+nvidia ) that uses the nvidia-prime tool to switch GPUs, but this uses the proprietary Nvidia driver. PRIME GPU Offloading is only for the open-source drivers. When I att...

Re: How do you switch beetween hybrid graphic cards?

This xrandr command only lasts for one session, so if you have rebooted or restarted your laptop since it was last used, then it needs to be used again before using the DRI_PRIME= command:
xrandr --setprovideroffloadsink 0x3f 0x64

Re: nvidia driver installed but won't load

The xorg.conf file is the source of your problem. It’s not needed in Mint 19 for your hybrid graphics setup and is configured incorrectly. Use this command to remove it: sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf

Did you create it using the command: sudo nvidia-xconfig
