Try uninstalling driver from Device manger for graphics and also select delete driver. Turn off wifi or whatever you connect to internet. You should already have downloaded driver you want to install, after uninstalling and deleting current driver reboot PC and then install driver you want. Reboot again and connect back to internet. If you do not disconnect from internet Windows 10 will try and install the driver it wants. This is not without a possibility that Windows will still install a driver if it detects its newer then the one you installed. Best of luck

Are you sure you have an Nvidia card in your system, because if it is not showing in Device Manager it may not.   Many Ideapad 520s came with only the Intel HD Graphics 620.      To know for sure, you would need to search for your laptops specific machine model (Machine Type Model) to see what options were included.


Are there any unknown devices showing in Device Manager?

Hi! Welcome to our forums community. Was there any recent changes or any updates installed before the issue arise? Are you having error messages when installing the driver? If yes, could you provide a screenshot of the message? And also, could you provide the exact model of the machine so we could check the details?
