Dell m4800, quadro k2100m. After switching from nouveau to nvidia 470xx, internal monitor shows nothing. Driver show screen only for external monitor with hdmi.

installation steps:

  1. sudo dnf install gcc kernel-headers kernel-devel akmod-nvidia-470xx xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-470xx xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-470xx-libs xorg-x11-drv-nvidia-470xx-power
  2. sudo akmods --force
  3. sudo dracut --force
  4. sudo systemctl enable nvidia-{suspend,resume,hibernate}
  5. For grubby rd.drivers.blacklist=nouveau nouveau.modeset=0

Looks like a driver bug, the internal display isn’t even detected. Please check with an ealier version, e.g. 460 or 390.

Latest version not support my video card. 390 is too old. I don’t know how to find any other versions. I think 470 is my last chance)

The 390 legacy driver should well support your gpu and kernel. Please install it for testing purposes.
