Hey Joe,
The Y520 is a laptop, mobile graphics cards have always been a bit difficult with Linux/Ar-Sandbox if i recall correctly.
Here are a few ideas for you:
obligatory first tip: reboot
my next idea would be to try downloading the drivers from nvidias website, choose the mobile version! it is not necessarily the same as for the desktop 1050ti
the issue might be that linux automatically chooses the intel gpu instead of the nvidia one, you can disable that (google for further info)
last idea, it is highly unlikely but possible that the laptop itself is defective, try installing a windows 10 trial version to see if the issue persists in Windows
i hope that helps, let me know if any of this or a completely different approach fixed it for you!
greetings,
David
