Hello! I’ve been using Ubuntu 20.04 alongside ROS Noetic for my course in my previous laptop which had an AMD CPU with an iGPU, so never really had to struggle with drivers. I had to get a new laptop (ASUS TUF Gaming F15 2022) which has an Intel i7-12700H and an RTX 3060. The 12th gen processor (as far as I know) means I had to install a newer kernel (which was a hassle by itself because the laptop wouldn’t boot to GUI (or not at all in some cases, had to do a minimal install with no updates and no extra drivers/proprietary software and unplug the ethernet cable during the whole process)).
I ended up using mainline to install the 5.16.20 kernel via the Ctrl + Alt + F2 CLI, but it still didn’t boot into GUI until I sudo apt installed the nvidia drivers 470. Seeing that this worked I would have thought that the NVIDIA GPU was the one rendering the desktop, but when I run nvidia-smi it outputs the “not installed or not running” error.

I spent the whole yesterday trying out solutions, including the prime-select nvidia one and a bunch more.
I’ll be including the nvidia-bug-report.sh output file incase it’s of use to you guys. If you have any clue of what’s going on please let me know!
Edit: I disabled Secure Boot and Fast Boot and am running Dual Boot with Windows11
