I had really bad case on my laptop: I can’t switch Nvidia card. nvidia-settings doesn’t work and nvidia-smi too. It gives me this message:
NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn’t communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running.
But I have installed last version of nvidia-driver-470.
nvidia-settings message is:
ERROR: Unable to find display on any available system
(nvidia-settings:3606): GLib-GObject-CRITICAL **: 16:49:29.105: g_object_unref: assertion ‘G_IS_OBJECT (object)’ failed
** Message: 16:49:29.109: PRIME: No offloading required. Abort
** Message: 16:49:29.109: PRIME: is it supported? no

After reboot It works. I can use my Nvidia card, but it too hot. Temperature in nvidia-settings tool is high, about 80 Celcius degrees.
Is the fan and airflow working? Please create a new nvidia-bug-report.log.

In the logs the gpu is idle but at 67°C, I suspect a hardware issue. Maybe the heatpipe became loose.
Thank you very much for your help and sorry for my english!
I will check the heatpipe.
