Ubuntu – Intel Graphics card not seen by ubuntu 18.04

driversgraphicsintel graphics

As title says. I am running on a dual boot laptop with Windows 10 too.

I have an Intel® Core™ i7-7700HQ CPU @ 2.80GHz × 8 on my machine and a GTX 1070 Nvidia GPU, but I can not make Ubuntu see the Intel driver that comes with the CPU. I have a manually installed NVIDIA driver running on that (the latest that comes with CUDA 10.2).

I tried:

What else can I try?

  • I have Lenovo Legion Y540 and I faced the same problem. To fix this there was a option in my BIOS to change from discrete graphic to switchable graphics and that the did the trick for me.
