    I uninstalled the graphics card and now it is gone. How to undo it?


    Hello.

    I wanted to uninstall drivers for Nvidia and i made stupid thing. I entered Device Manager, chosed Nvidia card and uninstalled it. Now I have only Intel HD 4000 card and no other card and any other unknown device.
    My system just can't see the Nvidia card. After many reboots and few days it's still missing.
    In BIOS I switched on and off fastboot(or something similar) and Optimus but it did not help.

    Can you help me?

    Try clicking "View", "Show hidden devices" in Device manager.

    Seba,

    If the NVidia card & its software was supplied with the computer then go to the computer maker's website, download their latest drivers for it and install them [they will probably be provided as an exe file that you simply run].

    If you bought & installed the NVidia card separately then go to NVidia's website, download their latest drivers for it and install them [they will probably be provided as an exe file that you simply run].

    2 things you can try.

    1) Top of device manager, right click Computer and Scan for New Hardware. It may pick it up and install the driver.

    2) Go to settings>security & Updates>Check for updates. See if WU will pick it up.

    It doesn't work. I tried to install software from Dell and Nvidia but there is still an error that the driver can't find the compatible device.

    Scanning doesn't find a Nvidia and any other unknown device.There is nothing to update in updates.

    If Nvidia is the motherboard video device, go into the BIOS setup and see if there is an option to enable it.

    Intel HD 4000 is motherboard video device. Nvidia K5000M is second/additional graphic card (dedicated?).

    Your problem is; this is a laptop with switchable graphics. That said, the first step is to go to the laptops driver/support page and re download the Nvidia mobile driver for your make/model.
    Support | Dell US

    FYI: The Intel HD graphics is the default GPU.....if/when the graphics become intense enough it's "supposed" to switch over to the Nvidia GPU. With some laptops there is an option to manually change the default GPU....but not all. I'm not sure if your Dell does.
