There does not appear to be an Nvidia graphics system there.

So you have one of these: ThinkCentre M920 Tower | High Performance Business Desktop | Lenovo US

I don’t see any of these comes with a dGPU, did you add in a dGPU yourself?

Which NVIDIA GPU do you have?

Yes, I’ve added it myself i currently have NVIDIA GTX 1050ti

You added that, but have you connected your displays to it? Looks like they are still connected to your mobo.

Yes i have two monitors one is connected in the integrated and one for the dedicated GPU.

I assume only 1 of the monitors is working then since it cannot detect your dGPU.

Did you make sure that the GPU is plugged in properly?

By any chance did you test to see if it works on Windows? (software / hardware issue troubleshooting)

Im pretty sure its plugged properly and yes it works on windows on my other pc.

My pc is kinda new so i think thats the problem setting up drivers etc. but ill put this here for future users with this specific problem.

Go into the bios and selecting the integrated graphics card as the primary video, boot then restart (I think this step is pretty unnecessary… but well just to be sure) we go back to the bios and select the gpu one (for me its called PEG but idk about your mobo) save the settings then boot. Install the nvidia drivers after thats done reboot go into the bios again select auto (again its different for mobo’s) and now your graphics card should be detected now.

My brother helped me on this one he’s using windows 10 and met this problem which i just copied using the manjaro way. Thanks eveyone!
