I'm using Linux Mint. I already know how to do it in Windows but I'd like to know how to upgrade. I'm going to be changing from a GT 610 to a GTX 950. Is there anything I need to change like drivers?
I'll finish this as an answer. Mint should be able to detect the change and fix any problems. So:
- Replace card
That being said, as a safety precaution, since things do go wrong sometimes, download the Nvidia drivers from their website. Before making the switch.
If something goes wrong you will boot into run level 3 (cmd line) just issue :
chmod +x <driver file name >
Then run it with :
And follow the prompt. It will ask you at the end of you want it to configure your xorg configuration, yes to that and then reboot when finished
