I have an HP OMEN Ryzen 7 4800 with a GeForce GTX 1660Ti running a dual boot with Windows 10 and Linux - Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS with 5.14.0-1020-oem kernel.
I started the following thread some time ago:
My problem was solved back then, but one day out of the blue, without doing anything that could change the “working” configuration (to my knowledge), upon booting my system up my laptop’s screen looked like static TV black and white noise.
After searching the issue online I found that kernel 5.13 was responsible for this bug.
After switching to kernel 5.11 or 5.14 the main screen was working again.
The problem is that I could not make my external monitor work anymore.
It worked with kernel 5.13(only the external monitor)until I switched my nvidia prime options to “Power saving mode (Intel)” trying to solve the problem.
I could not make anything work so far, even though I tried to follow each step of the solution of my previous thread.

NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldnt communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running.

Lastly, I have attached the output of

I would appreciate any help.
Thanks in advance.
