How to install Nvidia drivers on dual GPU Dell XPS 17 laptop?

I just recently installed Rocky Linux for the first time and I haven’t been able to get the Nvidia GPU to work on my laptop. The same Rocky Linux installation works fine on a desktop PC with only a dedicated Nvidia GPU, but on a Dell XPS 17 with dual integrated Intel and dedicated Nvidia RTX4070 GPUs, I’m unable to get it working. Blender is unable to see the Nvidia GPU. I’ve followed several tutorials online that, again, work on the desktop but there’s no mention of dual GPU setup. I’ll appreciate any help.

Is there a way of telling Rocky linux to use the Nvidia GPU?

UPDATE: I installed Ubuntu 24.0 and out of the box the Nvidia GPU works and Blender sees it. So it should be possible, I’m just not too familiar with RHEL based distros so not sure how to proceed. I must use Rocky Linux for teaching.

NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn't communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running.

I got it to work! Following this post solved it: How to Install NVIDIA Driver and CUDA on Rocky 9.1 - #11 by timppu
