I have a computer with an RTX 2080 Ti, which I recently updated from Ubuntu 19.04 to 19.10. Recently, I've started having screen / graphics issues.
I get random flickering dots all the time (both in games and on the normal Ubuntu workspace, and in games specifically (not on the normal workspace), I get these graphics glitches as well.
- The glitches happen on all three of my screens, so it can't be a bad monitor or HDMI cable (which was a potential solution I found on the internet)
- I tried connecting my screens directly to the mainboard, but the glitches still appear
- I am currently using the
nvidia-driver-435driver, but testing the
-440drivers had the same effect
- When in UEFI, the glitches don't appear
- When I move my mouse over the flickering dots, the cursor is rendered above the flickering dots (i. e. it covers the flickering dot)
I don't think it's the monitors or the cables as it happens with three screens at the same time. I don't think it's the graphics card as it happens when I connect the monitors to the mainboard as well. It has to be some driver or configuration issue. But I tested multiple versions of the driver as well.
What else can I do to fix this?
