Opening a new thread here (old thread starting here: Black screen after install of nvidia driver ubuntu - #141 by generix). I’m on an Alienware m15 r4 with a GTX 3070. When installing nvidia drivers via the ubuntu repos (e.g.
Additional Drivers in Software Updates Settings) the internal screen does not work: it is detected but stay black. When installing via the
NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-460.73.01.run file no such issue appears but the installation seems to have an issue with being “permanent” i.e. sometimes after restarting the driver deactivates. I’ve attached a bug report from the installation done via the .run file.
