I am having an issue with the GTX 1060 on a pcspecialist laptop. The laptop is running Linux Mint 18.3, and I didn’t experience this issue until recently. The laptop has been used for gaming, but I have had a pause in gaming for a few weeks. There have obviously been some updates since last time things were working, but since it has been over several weeks it is difficult to pin down.
The specific problem is that launching 3D games will cause the screen to go black. I can SSH into the laptop, and the journal will report:
The GPU has fallen of the bus.
I have tried this on both 384.111 and 290.25 drivers. Both experience the problem. I will attach the nvidia-bug-report files for both drivers.
