CTRL ALT T to enter terminal.

sudo ubuntu-drivers autoinstall

Once installed, reboot your computer.

Then go back into Additional Drivers. You'll be good to go.

Pick a proprietary only driver, don't pick one that says tested in its name.

None taken, they look great. Thanks for the share :).

If the above steps from @StarTreker did not work you probably have to install the driver manually. Your nvidia card is legacy which means nvidia will not update it anymore. Your last driver is 340.108 from December 23, 2019.

If you need to do a manual installation follow this guide and download the 9300M GS Notebook drivers on the nvidia site. It looks hard to do so, but it is beginners friendly.

Thank you for a quick reply
I think I will reinstall the Zorin OS
I think I have messed up something before :-). I will try your advice after fresh install

Thank you

I am sure @Michel and @StarTreker can solve your problem. Both are pretty knowledgeable about NVidia GPU.
