All these drivers, except X.Org are proprietary Nvidia drivers. The open source is a bug of the user interface. In your case the proprietary driver is already installed.

There was no real solution to this issue, I was required to use a DVI and Display Port adapter on the same graphic card to extend the two monitors.

If you fear that your drivers will cause problems during your upgrade, I would consider: Removing the nvidia proprietary drivers. Upgrading your distro. Installing the nvidia proprietary drivers. If this yet again fails, you can get into your installation through recovery or using nomodeset during your bootup and removing the nvidia drivers and look for ...

Something is probably wrong with your graphics card driver. Had the same problem with ubuntu 14.04 and geforce gtx 860M. Updated driver and added prime-indicator to make sure that I was using the desired card all the time. (runs the same card for all processes) You can use bumblebee to choose card for each process separately. For updating Driver: Ubuntu ...

You should first download your respective driver from : http://www.geforce.com/drivers Then, refer to this answer to proceed : Ubuntu 14.04 install nVidia driver Should work for 16.04 as well.

Upgraded my Lenovo W540 to Ubuntu 16.04 LTS and I now have 3 monitors connected on the UltraDock. Using VGA, DVI and DisplayPort connectors. All three show up in the normal Monitor Settings dialog.

I solved the same problem by putting the following two lines in the file $HOME/.bashrc export PATH=/usr/local/cuda/bin:/usr/local/cuda/lib64:$PATH export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/cuda/lib64:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH This will set some environment variables in order to run and write CUDA enabled programs.

nvidia-smi binary symlink created when you install the nvidia driver, as nvidia-340 in my case.

I appreciate this is an old question. You have no doubt long since resolved this issue.

So I should just click on what's there already? No installing PPA or any of that? I'll try that. I swear that I tried this already on an older install and ran into the loop login problem.

Are you able to remove the current drivers at all during recovery? sudo apt-get remove nvidia* Then check whether you can get in again. You could also try booting up by adding "nomodeset" right after quiet-splash in the boot options in grub.

Maybe check out your temperatures on ubuntu 15.10? or if you are able to run 16.04 for a little while check them on there as well. Way on how to check your temperatures: How do I get the CPU temperature?

Do the default graphics drivers not work? the Ubuntu graphics PPA could possibly break your system and you are allowed to keep both halves.

If you want them to function the way they do in Windows then bumblebee really is your best bet. The monitor will run on the intel chipset and whenever you want to run something with your nvidia card you use optirun or primus if primus is installed. example: optirun steam You can do this through the terminal or even add it to a shortcut/launcher

Have you tried installing the nvidia drivers through the terminal? sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install nvidia-364

Have you got a xorg.conf at all? Maybe there are some incorrect settings in there that might cause it to try and set a resolution it doesn't actually support.

Does this happen at all when you disable the option to save your session upon Shutdown? Maybe play around with the hibernation/sleep options a little. It sounds like it might be linked to this particular problem.

If you use optimus graphics, I suppose it depends on whether the display port is going through your intel graphics or on your nvidia graphics. Does your external monitor work when you switch to the intel profile in nvidia-settings? if so, then the display port most probably runs through your intel graphics. I am not sure whether bumblebee and primus ...

Ubuntu 16.04 comes with xserver Xorg 1.18 and the configuration is a little bit different than previously.

Following this guide solved the problem. I did all of it: updated GRUB settings, BIOS settings, and the kernel. I haven't tested whether all of these are necessary but at least the full package did the trick for me. It works on the P50's mini-DisplayPort. However, when my external monitor is connected to either of the Lenovo Dock's Displayports, it simply ...

Found the culprit. Had these 2 files: /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-352_hybrid.conf /etc/modprobe.d/nvidia-346_hybrid.conf Both of them had blacklist nouveau and alias nouveau off which was preventing the nouveau driver from loading. With these 2 removed I was able to see all outputs and configure all 3 monitors.

I am not 100% sure this will fix your issue, but you should check out this ubuntu documentation regarding hybrid graphics and how to use switcheroo to activate the different cards. It solved my issue when trying to use my hybrid ati Sony laptop that kept losing the Intel drivers and not the ati. Hope it helps!

Try a different Ubuntu flavor Ubuntu, which runs on the Unity desktop environment, has a lot of "eye-candy" and slows down the system. Use a lighter, faster Ubuntu flavor. Which one? Lubuntu, or even Xubuntu, is super light. Use it instead of normal Ubuntu. Use the newest version The newer, the better. Every Ubuntu version comes with improvments with a ...

I think there is some problem with drivers config in Ubuntu. You need to change drivers configuration in Ubuntu.

1. Log into your account in the TTY. 2. Run sudo apt-get purge nvidia-* 3. Run sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa and then sudo apt-get update. 4. Run sudo apt-get install nvidia-364. 5. Reboot If you can't get past the login screen, Ctrl+Alt+F1, reboot and disable UEFI secure boot.

Don't know if this would help but.... Have you tried booting from a USB? you can download and format the iso on the USB. Link to USB site Unetbootin You have not said if the "try ubuntu" option is working? Personally I would start with a tried and trusted version of Ubuntu LTS like Trusty as 16.04 is a bit new and untested.

You might want to enable the graphics-drivers ppa on your system that contains the NVIDIA drivers: sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa sudo apt update Then you should have listings all the way up to 367.18 (Open Source) drivers. Seems to be working great for me. Hope this helps!

So after a lot of Google, trial and error and the help of others on this forum I was able to get all four monitors working relatively reliably.

Yes, Bumblebee should work fine with your card (Bumblebee supports whatever Nvidia or nouveau do). Do not hesitate to seek for help on the bugtracker. They are some known issues, but most of them should be fixed in the coming release (for which a pre-version is available through our testing PPA. You might potentially also have some issues with bbswitch (the ...

Yes, I had the same issue with a Dell Precision M6800 with a Quadro K5100M GPU, running Ubuntu 14.04.

I first reboot using the original generic kernel, 3.13.0-32-generic (without the CUDA packages installed), and then (without even needing to log ...

In Ubuntu 16.04 nvidia-352 is just a transitional package for nvidia-361. Fortunately nvidia-352 is available from the Proprietary GPU drivers PPA. Download the following nvidia-352.79 realated packages from the PPA : libcuda1-352_352.79-0ubuntu0~gpu16.04.2_amd64.deb nvidia-352_352.79-0ubuntu0~gpu16.04.2_amd64.deb ...

For one, you'll want the proprietary Nvidia drivers like Frank mentioned. Another thing which should help: from what you said it sounds like you have one monitor running off of your CPU (through the mother board), and one running off of the GPU. I would recommend running both monitors off of your Nvidia GPU. The 970 can definitely support it, and it's ...

First save any work in case your screen turns off and won't turn on without restarting. What I am going to suggest is temporary to begin with; you can make it permanent if it works. Go to the terminal and run cvt 1920 1080 60. This will output a string of text or two. The last one should start with the word Modeline. Copy from the first text after ...

I personally have had several problems with both Nvidea and the 16.04 upgrade tool. Try installing a different desktop environment. That way, you will know if it's Unity messing up on you or Ubuntu itself. I recommend Gnome. Open a terminal (Ctrl+Alt+T) and type **sudo apt-get install gnome** Now you must investigate. There could be a few things that ...
