    Installing drives for nvs 5200m graphics card on ubuntu 20.04

    I am trying to install nvidia drivers for my nvs 5200m graphics card and I have failed all the time.
    I have tried various ways on various sites but nothing helped.
    And when I installed nvidia drivers and opened nvidia settings only thing I can see is prime profiles.
    Code:
    lspci | grep -i VGA
    Code:
    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 3rd Gen Core processor Graphics Controller (rev 09)
    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GF108GLM [NVS 5200M] (rev a1)
    Code:
    sudo lshw -c video
      *-display UNCLAIMED

    I tried installing recommened packages from software-properties-gtk but still of no use.
    I don't know if these outputs will be helpful but I guess it will!
    Regards.

    The "M" in your graphic's card name tells me that it is a laptop unit. Please give us make and model of laptop and specs if you know them.

    NVS5200M needs the 390 driver and thios version only. Trying to install any other will fail.

    Maybe my ubuntu broke because of things I was trying on it so I am reinstalling it. Will install 390 drivers as you stated as soon as I reinstall my ubuntu.

    I installed 390-drivers before reinstalling ubuntu and restarted the laptop and it worked! Thank you so much. I almost spend a complete day trying to figure it out.
