HW:ROG STRIX GL503VM-FY022 / nVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 6GB
Issue: black screen (nothing except Ctrl+Alt+PrintScreen+B works) before gdm/lightdm on Ubuntu 18.04.
Drivers worked for few months but after random reboot (no drivers were updated, only grub) I’ve got a blank screen.
Purging drivers and using nouveau works for work but this way my laptop is useless for gaming…
Fortunately ssh works so I can connect remotely and save logs. In all cases listed below I get the exact same error in dmesg (grep NVRM):
[ 1.429482] NVRM: loading NVIDIA UNIX x86_64 Kernel Module 3xx.xx (using threaded interrupts) [ 6.425963] NVRM: GPU at PCI:0000:01:00: GPU-ca4d2121-189c-752b-9cba-302ed81038d4 <b>[ 6.425965] NVRM: Xid (PCI:0000:01:00): 61, 1d5e(356c) 00000000 00000000</b>
and (grep nvidia):

- GDM/lightDM purged reinstalled
- purging and reinstalling nvidia drivers from ubuntu stable/updates repository (390.48-0ubuntu3)
- purging and reinstalling nvidia drivers from graphics-drivers/ppa (both 396.45-0ubuntu0~gpu18.04.2 and 390.77-0ubuntu0~gpu18.04.1
- purging and reinstalling drivers from nvidia.com (396.45 and 384.130)
- adding various kernel variables from grub (vga=0 rdblacklist=nouveau nouveau.modeset=0 nvidia-drm.modeset=1)
- adding options nvidia_xxx_drm modeset=1 to modprobe
nouveau was blacklisted in all cases. But I’ve always got the same (blackscreen and):
<b>[ 6.425965] NVRM: Xid (PCI:0000:01:00): 61, 1d5e(356c) 00000000 00000000</b>
and after few seconds:
<b>[ 16.219211] nvidia-modeset: ERROR: GPU:0: Idling display engine timed out: 0x0000987d:0:0</b>
I’ve found that Xid = 61 means Internal micro-controller breakpoint/warning yet no information about how to futher debug the issue.
Have anyone faced the same issue? What can I do to debug this issue?
Any help would be useful as without the soultion I’m stuck with using nouveau…
