How to update gt 750m?


Hello, tf2 runs terribly bad on my linux system, and I think its because I need to update my graphics card. How would I go about updating the drivers for my gt 750m?? Thanks!

You get them from nvidia site or your distro site.

Or you can post your distro name, version, so someone will help.

The GT750M should be fast enough to play TF2 if you use the proprietary drivers. You should be able to install them using the Additional Drivers function of Ubuntu. More info here: https://help.ubuntu.com/community/Bi...erHowto/Nvidia

Have you installed the proprietary driver? Also, it seems that you have an Nvidia Optimus setup, so you will have to use Bumblebee to run it on the Nvidia chip instead of the Intel chip.

Hi...

Which drivers are you using? Did you install the proprietary Nvidia drivers from "Additional Drivers" TobiSGD mentioned in his post?

Regards...

Click on the link n post #3 and follow the instructions. The information is for Ubuntu, but it should be the same on Mint.
