The latest version of 20.04 does not start on a HP Spectre x360 (df1745ng, with NVIDIA GTX 1050Ti) at all in normal mode. Safe mode works but I need the nvida drivers cuDNN and performance reasons.

I first tried the update (from 19.19) and then a fresh install. Neither works.

The Installer also only works with safe graphics.

The Nvidia driver is the one suggested from ubuntu-driver (nvidia-driver-440).

I tried to downgrade via sudo apt install nvidia-driver-435 without any change.

Does anyone have suggestions what else I could try?

  • Nope. I always had this deactivated and is still deactivated. – nric May 25 at 15:33
