I’ve been having troubles installing drivers in the aforementioned setup. I’ve tried something like 10 different tutorials, tried drivers from the ppa and nvidia website, tried autoinstall of recommended drivers. Nothing works for me. I tried to go here
https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/533434/linux/current-graphics-driver-releases/, then to section Legacy releases for GF1xx “Fermi” GPUs - version 390.xx - did not work. I have no idea what to do next.
During 390.xx,410,415 installations I was having the following issue: DKMS modules were built just fine, but at the very end of the installation, I get this error message: unable to load the nvidia-drm kernel module. It suggests to go and check /var/log/ for more info. But that log does not contain anything apart the messages of successfully finished installations steps and the final message that unable to load the nvidia-drm kernel module.
After every installation the resolution of my display is 1024x768, whereas for normally working drivers it should be 2560x1440.
Also, I should mention that the Ubuntu installation is completely fresh.
Here is the output of some commands that I think might be minimally useful for troubleshooting the problem.
sudo lshw -c display *-display description: VGA compatible controller product: GP104 [GeForce GTX 1070] vendor: NVIDIA Corporation physical id: 0 bus info: pci@0000:01:00.0 version: a1 width: 64 bits clock: 33MHz capabilities: pm msi pciexpress vga_controller bus_master cap_list rom configuration: driver=nouveau latency=0 resources: irq:127 memory:de000000-deffffff memory:c0000000-cfffffff memory:d0000000-d1ffffff ioport:e000(size=128) memory:c0000-dffff
After any driver installation attempts line

Please, let me know if I must provide more info to make it clearer.
