Recently I got into a problem, which is produced on 4 different setups:
- Laptop with intel and nvidia RTC 2070 gpu (limited BIOS options)
- Desktop with Intel and nvidia RTX 2080Ti (BIOS can disable Intel)
- 2x Desktops with nvidia RTX 3080 (BIOS can disable Intel)
I am not sure what is going on, but what I am sure about is the installation steps and the producers are the same used on several setups before.
Also to mention, the environment on the laptop was working until the update was triggered.
The errors seemed the be the same on all the machines, and the behavior of the hardware looked similar. When the GPU fan start on the boot time and just stops when the log says “failed to register device”
nvidia-smi reports there is no device detected, when the
dmesg reports i2c failure, as well as failed to allocate nvkmskapidevice
I tested on Ubuntu 22.04, 23.04, and LinuxMint 21.1
Kernels 5.15, and above
Drivers 515 and above up to 530
and after I gave up, I found the driver 525, 515 are working on the laptop, only if the drivers are installed and booted without the AC adapter being plugged in (in another words, only on battery)
Can anyone help me to understand what is going on?
This is the bug report of my laptop when it is working on the battery only, ubuntu 23.04 and driver 525.105.17
If the AC Adapter is plugged in after the boot and the driver is working, then the GPU hangs up, the screen freezes but the audio keeps going.
with ctrl + alt + T I open new terminal and reboot, the PC reboots but the GPU failed to load until I reboot with the AC adapter plugged out.
