So I've tried running nvidia-xconfig and this is what i've got:

Code: [Select]
tran@tran-OMEN-by-HP-Laptop ~ $ sudo /usr/lib/nvidia-375/bin/nvidia-xconfig

WARNING: Unable to locate/open X configuration file.

Package xorg-server was not found in the pkg-config search path.
Perhaps you should add the directory containing `xorg-server.pc'
to the PKG_CONFIG_PATH environment variable
No package 'xorg-server' found
New X configuration file written to '/etc/X11/xorg.conf'

Well, it wrote a new X configuration file, which is actually a good thing.  For some reason, whenever I run that command, it never "finds" one and just writes a new one, even if the driver is running.

After rebooting, is the driver working now?

Can both the OP, and someone else using the nvidia driver please post the output from:
Code: [Select]
dpkg -l | grep xserver-xorg

Ok so I've done some research and it seems that nvidia-prime doesn't work with 4.4 kernels (?) so switching to peppermint 8 did the trick !

Thanks a lot for your help
