I have a gaming laptop ASUS ROG GL703Ge STRIX with the mentioned Nvidia GPU, I installed ubuntu with windows as dual boot but the problem I'm facing is I can't use the GPU, I tried installing the drivers with sudo ubuntu-drivers auto-install it installed nvidia-driver-430 which is the one recommended by Nvidia website, but when I type nvidia-smi I get an error message saying :

NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn't communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running.

then I removed the driver and installed it manually:

sudo apt-get purge nvidia*
sudo apt-get install nvidia-driver-430 nvidia-settings

but still the same issue, what can I do to solve this?

And also before I boot each time I have to press e in the grub menu to edit the code and to add nouveau.modeset=0.
