Driver 470.103.01 not working on Ubuntu 20.04 with GeForce GT 750M

nvidia-bug-report.log.gz (361.4 KB)
I get a black screen after booting, never gets to the login screen.
Thanks in advance.

Please delete
and uninstall the intel video driver.

How do I uninstall the intel video drivers?

sudo apt remove xserver-xorg-video-intel

Great! Now it gets to pass the black screen and I can successfully log in again. However, I think I may still have an issue:

$ nvidia-smi
NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn't communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running.

  • run
sudo prime-select nvidia
  • run
grep nvidia /etc/modprobe.d/* /lib/modprobe.d/*

to find a file containing

blacklist nvidia

and remove it,
then run

sudo update-initramfs -u

and reboot.

I got this result from grep:

/etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-framebuffer.conf:blacklist nvidiafb

Should I remove that line?

No, that file is needed.
Quite odd that the driver doesn’t load. Please run
sudo modprobe nvidia
and post any errors given.

Thank you so much for your help @generix . I think everything is working fine now.
