I installed Zorin OS recently and my graphic card RTX 3070 Laptop is not detected and I have instead this weird name detected: NVIDIA 01:00.0 NVIDIA Corporation Device 249d (Neofetch)
I installed the last Nvidia driver suggested by Zorin (535.113.01), tried a few ulterior driver version, even reinstalled the OS a few times, but my graphic card is just not detected, I tried several solution found in the web and nothing work
I'm a new linux user so I don't know how this really work and where to search to fix this issue, so I hope there is someone who can help me, thank !
the name does not show up in the way that you expect?
no that's not the issue, in the first place I wanted to correctly install the drivers because my wacom display is directly connected to my graphic card, but my wacom screen just does not show up (before to make all this change, the wacom display was detected by gnome, but I was unable to use it)
see if your Nvidia configuration settings window pops up.
when I start it from the terminal
ERROR: A query to find an object was unsuccessful
ERROR: Unable to load info from any available system

You might take photos of your BIOS and relay them here... Other than that, I am not able to be familiar with your BIOS Settings enough to be very much help on finding or adjusting settings.
Hybrid Graphics are a BIOS setting. It cannot be disabled from with Zorin OS.
Everyone's bios is different, even in the same manufacturer. This is because of physical hardware configuration. We really would need to see images of your bios in order to assist in its configuration.
