First of all: Have you installed the right driver for NVidia-card? How did you install the driver and from where? Have you installed the NVidia tools too? Look also here: (here you will find additional Links for doing NVidia things right!).

I have installed that have downloaded from nvidia web site. I think this is a right driver . I installed my driver according this page . What is your mean about NVidia tools? NVIDIA X server setting installed on my fedora.

Okay. There(X-Server) settings you can check, if your Nvidia card is used really. That is Imean with Nvidia tools. Ed209 is all right, what he says.

What is wrong with using rpmfusion? Goto

and read the procedure there. It all boils down in most cases to enter as root

dnf install vdpauinfo libva-vdpau-driver libva-utils

and enjoying your new nvidia card.

You can also open Gnome Software and go to Add-ons > Hardware Drivers tab > click and install :)
