I saw lots of similar issues as mine on the forum but none of them helped me out so I figured I’d be the one to post too.
I don’t know what really happened. I didn’t do any updates manually or so, and when I woke up plugged in my monitor it wasn’t working. Then I checked what driver was my laptop using and I saw that it wasn’t an NVIDIA driver but at the graphics it was showing this: llvmpipe (LLVM 10.0.0, 256 bits)
Running nvidia-smi on the terminal outputs:
NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn’t communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running.
Info: Secure boot is disabled & Switchable graphics options is disabled.
I’ve been trying for more than 12 hours to fix this and I don’t know what to do anymore. I even purged nvidia and installed it again (Software&Updates) and it didnt do anything. So, if you could try and help me out I’d really appreciate it.
I am running Ubuntu 18.04 on a Lenovo Legion Y545, NVIDIA 1660 TI.
