Nvidia drivers on Asus TUF laptop with AMD Ryzen 7 processor

Post by djczaps » Fri Jun 28, 2019 6:23 am

Hi

I'm getting some issues with trying to up and running Nvidia as my native 3D accelerator on laptop with AMD Ryzen 7 processor.
Any Ideas how to get it running ?

Nvidia drivers 430 installed and detected in driver manager. Hower amd is using to take care of display and graphics for now.
I wasn't able to even change my resolution from 800x600 to FullHD - installed new kernel 5.15x solved at least that isse.

After putting some commands I have following output below :
I tried with Bumblee Bee , nvidia-settings showing empty window and prime-select nvidia :
showing that info :

Info: the nvidia profile is already set

thanks deepakdeshp

I checked this blog before , tried to follow the steps even in kernel 4.15 xx and 5.15xx and didn't resolve my case.
Maybe a bumble bee drivers making some noise with it ? I will try to remove them cause it doesn't seem to be in use either ;(

Is there no option for this in the BIOS?
