What driver do I use for nvidia gt430?

I have a Nvidia GT 430. Should I use the 390 or 470 drivers?

470xx drivers don’t support 400-series GPUs.


For a card that old - you should use nouveau.

You should give nouveau a try.

How do I go about that?

sudo mhwd -i pci video-linux -f

The nvidia Website will tell you which cards are supported by which drivers

I would use nouveau driver only as a fallback, if you can install Nvidia 390, I would go for that, see if it works, and if it does, keep this driver as it is the best one for a Nvidia card, the free driver nouveau (provided by video-linux) to me is a low tier driver for Nvidia.

To manage video drivers from the graphical interface, go into Manjaro Settings, then Hardware configuration, and right click on driver to install/remove.

It seems the nvidia drivers were the problem. I removed them and installed the free drivers and it’s all working now. Honestly, I can’t tell the difference between the two. I don’t use this for watching much video anyway.
