RTX 3060 does not load on Ubuntu 20


nvidia-smi says “NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn’t communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running.” I have attached the log file for you to check. Can you let me know how to fix this issue?nvidia-bug-report.log.gz (79.5 KB)

As there is no make.log for the driver kernel modules, I guess you don’t have the kernel headers installed.
sudo apt install linux-image-$(uname -r) && sudo apt install --reinstall nvidia-driver-470.
Make sure nouveau is blacklisted (grep -r nouveau /etc/modprobe.d/), otherwise do that yourself:


Still not working. i have disabled Secure Boot in BIOS, reinstalled, purged and reinstalled multiple times and no luck. Did you look through the log file?

There still is no sign of the nvidia driver. Only nouveau loading.
What does dkms status say?
