I recently installed Ubuntu 18.04.02 LTS on my HP Zbook with a Nvidia Quadro M1200 inside.
When I tried to connect my external monitor it was discovered but stayed black so I tried to find a solution online but now it is no more discovered.
When I run ‘nvidia-smi’ I get this error message:
‘NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn’t communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running.’
Running ‘sudo ubuntu-drivers devices’ gives this:
‘== /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:01.0/0000:01:00.0 ==
modalias : pci:v000010DEd000013B6sv0000103Csd0000826Dbc03sc00i00
vendor : NVIDIA Corporation
model : GM107GLM [Quadro M1200 Mobile]
driver : nvidia-driver-390 - distro non-free recommended
driver : xserver-xorg-video-nouveau - distro free builtin’
So I installed nvidia-driver-390 and it is used as shown in this picture:
Using nvidia-settings gives:
So it looks like nothing is detected…
I disabled Secure Boot as it was recommanded in several threads but it didn’t change anything.
If you have any idea on how I could solve this issue, I would be very thankful.
