Hi, I need some desperate help here! I am trying to fix the Nvidia driver with version 435.21 on my Ubuntu 18.04 system, yet have trouble trying to link the kernel to the nvidia driver:
sudo apt install --reinstall linux-headers-5.4.0-42-generic

Before this, I installed the 435.21 driver using software&updates directly after purging nvidia* and cuda*, yet after reboot, I got llvmpipe (LLVM 10.0.0, 256 bits) running my graphic card and the following:
$nvidia-smi NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn't communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running. $nvidia-settings ERROR: NVIDIA driver is not loaded ERROR: Unable to load info from any available system $lshw -C display *-display UNCLAIMED description: VGA compatible controller product: GM204GL [Quadro M4000] vendor: NVIDIA Corporation physical id: 0 bus info: pci@0000:03:00.0 version: a1 width: 64 bits clock: 33MHz capabilities: pm msi pciexpress vga_controller bus_master cap_list configuration: latency=0 resources: memory:f6000000-f6ffffff memory:e0000000-efffffff memory:f0000000-f1ffffff ioport:e000(size=128) memory:f7000000-f707ffff $dkms status nvidia, 435.21: added

I just have a hunch there is definitely something wrong with my kernel, but have no idea how to fix it. I do not have /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nvidia.conf on my computer.
Can someone please help me with this? Any help would be highly appreciated.
