I am running a Dell G3 3579 , with Ubuntu 19.04 x86_64 CPU is INTEL i78720h , GPU is NVIDIA Geforce GTX 1050 Ti Mobi , also have Intel UHD graphics 630 onboard.
Whenever I have My NVIDIA Graphics card as default I experience system hangs for 5 seconds then things continue as normal. I often see “nvLock: client timed out, taking the lock” in my syslog file.
After switching back to the onboard Intel Graphics my system no longer experienced these hangs.
I came here because an online chat agent told me to create a new topic on this thread. I am not sure what else to post here as I just wanted to make NVIDIA aware of this issue so I can use NVIDIA graphics with Linux. I decided I would talk to you guys about it since I found other users were having the same issue.
