New 455.32 driver install crashes ubuntu 20.04, cannot boot, recovery mode no longer accessible, 2080ti, kernel 5.4.0-56, AMD ryzen 9

Having a very difficult time for several days trying to get normal boot off a fresh install of ubuntu 20.04 with either cuda11 w/ nvidia-driver-455.32 packaged or nvidia-driver455.32 alone. Have followed dozens of post on this forums which are related - no existing solution works and no errors/logs give precisely same behavior. Nouveau blacklisted in /etc/. Secure boot is disabled. Installed drivers from GUI or ppa or ubuntu dirvers autoinstall or with cuda11. Need to use cuda 10 or 11, so can’t revert to old drivers not matching cuda version requirements. No nvidia blacklist files in /etc/modprobe.d or /lib/modprobe.d

@generix you may be familiar with this issue, could you please help?

After fresh ubuntu 20.04 install and any method of installing nvidia-driver455.32, my desktop (Asus x570 mb build) will not boot to viable graphics for more than 2-5 minutes. Computer boots & functions normally when nvidia driver is purged and nouveau driver is used. Booting with active nvidia driver 455 will progress to purple log-in screen, stay active for 2-3 minutes, then system crashes - sometimes GPU completely disconnects & monitor registers no connection/activity or the other times I get black screen with string of “NVRM Xid: GPU 0:00:08:00: 45” errors and have to go to tty (cntr+alt+F2-12). Before the crash, when ubuntu boots and after good log-in, I can open terminal and enter nvidia-smi, which returns working table with 455 loaded & 2080ti recognized. So the driver install worked & GPU is recognized, but GPU or driver is somehow crashing shortly after boot. After crash, if I can reach to tty terminal then nvidia-smi gives “Unable to determine the device handle for GPU 0000:08:00.0: Unknown Error”. This occurs when I remove & remount GPU in either PCIe slot on motherboard. I haven’t placed GPU in different computer, but that’s a next step.

I cannot boot to recovery mode, as this will simply turn to black screen where tty cannot be accesses. The monitor that is connected by hdmi to RTX 2080ti stops recognizing that a GPU is connected - no graphics.

From the bug report log, it looks like the GPU is experiencing some pretty significant stability problems. It’s not clear what’s causing that, though. I would recommend checking to see if there is a system BIOS update available for your motherboard and if that doesn’t help, trying the GPU in a different system would be a good next step for troubleshooting.
