Nvidia-settings (5204), nvidia-smi error


I’m getting some errors for nVidia gpu on my Dell precision. I need to use them but I’m unable to do so. I have even selected performance mode in the settings. I have integrated Intel UHD graphics.


ERROR: Unable to load info from any available system

I’ve attached the nvidia bug report log file. Please help me what’s the issue here? If you need any information, please let me know.

Thanks in advance.

try booting with kernel parameter pci=realloc.
If that does not help I think the gpu is broken.
You could install Windows to verify that (look in device manager for errors).

Hi Mart,

I don’t know how to boot with that parameter. Could you please explain?
