Ubuntu does not access NVIDIA GPU on Ubuntu 20.04

I am running Ubuntu 20.04.03 (Dual-booted with Windows10) on MSI GE75Raider with an Intel UHD Graphics and NVIDIA GeForce RTX2060. Everything currently runs through the Intel graphics. I have tried to install the drivers 450, 460, 470 (as these appear to be the ones compatible for my GPU) by way of the additional drivers, apt-get install, .run straight from nvidia, the ppa repository (and rebooting after each install). I have followed numerous “guides” and threads with similar issues. Also my secure boot is off.

Any help or direction would be much appreciated, thank you!

Please try setting the kernel parameter
If that doesn’t help, please run nvidia-bug-report.sh as root and attach the resulting nvidia-bug-report.log.gz file to your post.

Setting the kernel parameter does not appear to change anything, so I’ve uploaded the bug report


  • switch to nvidia (sudo prime-select nvidia)
  • remove stray blacklist files (sudo rm /lib/modprobe.d/blacklist-nvidia.conf /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nvidia.conf)
  • update the initrd (sudo update-initramfs -u)
  • reboot
    If this doesn’t resolve the issue, please create a new nvidia-bug-report.log.

I am now able to use my gpu to use an external monitor. However I can only use the laptop screen (Intel) or the external monitor (Nvidia) by changing the prime settings, I do not seem able to use both together. Is there something I am missing to resolve that?

Please create a new nvidia-bug-report.log while in nvidia mode.
Please post the output of
xrandr --listproviders
