I recently got a Zotac GTX 970 Amp! card and I tried to put it in my machine. Once I replaced my GTX 750, I got the following error message in dmesg, and could no longer boot to a GUI.
[ 29.236800] Fixing recursive fault but reboot is needed! [ 32.234678] nvidia-modeset: WARNING: GPU:0: Lost display notification (0:0x00000000); continuing.
The machine is unable to log into X, and displays a blank screen, however it should be noted that splash screen for my distro was fine during boot. I also know the card works, because Windows works perfectly given the same hardware and card. In addition, Nouveau appears to work, albeit with a fixed resolution of 800x600 and only one of my monitors working. However, once I install the nvidia driver and reboot, I get the same error in dmesg.
My full specs:
Asus Z97-PRO motherboard
32 GB Ram
Zotac GTX 970 Amp!
Fresh install of Linux Mint 18 (Also tried Ubuntu)
I tried the beta driver .run file from the driver page, and I also tried the distro-provided driver.
I have attached is the full contents of nvidia-bug-report.log, run over SSH without X. Note that the command itself hangs. Nvidia-smi also hangs, if that helps any.
Is there anything I can do to fix this?
