Hi everyone, I could use some help. Graphics drivers just aren’t working suddenly after a reboot.
I’ve been happily using my graphics card for awhile. There were some issues I ran into when trying to launch Steam the other day. I wasn’t sure what was up but I knew that it’d been awhile since the Software Updater asked me to reboot. I let the updater run its thing and then rebooted.
Next thing I know, my resolution was really low. No nvidia drivers were loading. Verified through Additional Drivers that it at least believed that the drivers were installed.
Based on some searching I tried to just purge everything Nvidia-related and reinstall.
sudo apt remove --purge '^nvidia-.*' sudo apt remove --purge '^libnvidia-.*'
After I do this and reboot I can get in and the resolution is OK but because by that point it’s seemingly using nouveau.
I then try Additional Drivers again to install the Nvidia stuff and reboot. Back to crappy resolution again.
I also tried nvidia-modprobe to maybe see if I could manually load modules that just maybe weren’t loading. I’m not sure what’s going on.
I even tried manually installing the drivers
sudo apt install nvidia-driver-535 and no dice.
I’ve gone in and updated GDM to “debug=true” and run the nvidia-bug-report.sh.
Some other system details if it helps:
