First of all, i want to express my gratitude and thank you for taking the trouble to install an OS just to help me…
Thank you very much…
Do you still have an NVIDIA driver installed?
I checked with
dpkg -l | grep nvidia and yes, i have the 470 driver and utils, that i installed from the
Additional Drivers menu.
I did not understand the secure boot part… Is it easier to install drivers while not in secure boot? I didn’t get it and honestly, i do not know how to disable it, and since this is a Dual Boot system with Windows, i am worried i might do something stupid…
There is no nouveau because I told you to blacklist the nouveau driver, which is ok.
That is not the reason that there is no nouveau driver… I did not execute these commands as i got confused and asked for further clarification… Should i execute these commands that blacklist the nouveau driver now?
- Check if the 510 driver is listed in “Additional drivers”
The 510 driver is in the
Additional Drivers menu. However, the 470 is selected… I had tried in the past to install the 510, but the problems still remained… Perhaps collision with other installed drivers? As i had not uninstalled other drivers, just like you specified in your first answer.
I have to note that many times i am asked to provide a password for secure boot. I always do but i had never been asked for the password during boot time. Whenever i set a new password (after an update for example), then at reboot, i am presented with a blue screen and i select the first option (it is the “Continue Boot”).
Then the bootloader proceeds with the OS selection menu, however, the font is much larger at this time!!
If i boot into Windows, i will be asked for the Bitlocker password… I just restart and i do not get asked again.
If i boot into Ubuntu (20.04.4 LTS), then everything is normal… Upon reboot, the font is OK - at the right size - at the OS selection menu…
I still am confused on how i should proceed… Should i blacklist the nouveau driver now? Should i re-uninstall the 470 driver? What is this thing with password never being asked at secure boot? Could this explain some things?
Thank you very much!
EDIT: Right now, i just updated the Ubuntu system, and i was asked for a password again. When i rebooted, i just selected “Continue Boot” (the “Enroll MOK” was the second option that i have never pressed - i don’t even know what it does). The behaviour described above was what occured.
