GPU Drivers not loading on ubuntu 21

I’m not able to figure out why this gpu driver isn’t loading.

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

Create a file with the card details for gpu-manager

ACTION==“add”, SUBSYSTEM==“drm”, DEVPATH==“/drm/card”, RUN+=“/sbin/u-d-c-print-pci-ids”

Create a file when a module is loaded

Posting on this thread as I’m experiencing the same issue/symptoms
Linuxmint 21.1 (Ubuntu 22.04 LTS) using nvidia-driver-530
Any chance this was solved?
Also not able to output hdmi via hdmi/thunderbolt
