nvidia-bug-report.log (811.7 KB) Context: my laptop was running perfectly for months, then yesterday while I was playing a game on steam, it just rebooted all of a sudden and then after that it didn’t even recognized the NVidia drivers, I couldn’t see the graphics card drivers in the Software and Updates settings or ubuntu-drivers devices. I tried reainstalling the drivers and it it definitely wasn’t smooth, now I do see them but still have issues.
Laptop: Dell xps 9570 NVidia GTX 1050 ti
Some commands for more info:
