I’m trying to install an nvidia graphics driver but have failed on numerous attempts. FYI, I have the Secure boot disabled. I’ve also removed files where the /etc/modprobe.d and /lib/modprobe.d nvidia was blacklisted.
I’ve attemped to install the drivers -440, -435, -430, -418 using
sudo apt install nvidia-driver-XXX
and when failed, removed the installations by
sudo apt purge nvidia*
I have been going through this for two days now and feel very lost. I would highly appreciate help!!

NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn’t communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running.
Let me know if there’s any information you need. Thanks!!
