Satya Keerthi Chand ; Hello;

What release are we working with ? Show:
lsb_release -a

What is the graphic's hardware ?
lspci -k|grep -iEA5 'vga|3d'

Later releases for nvidia-setting is " nvidia-settings 387.22-0ubuntu0~gpu16.04.1 " . so we make sure you are current with updates -
show us :
sudo apt update
sudo apt full-upgrade

Now reboot and see what the situation is.

-all better now ? -
