I saw some other answers about nvidia drivers after update (sudo apt update and sudo apt upgrade). But my nvidia installation doesn't work anymore

For example:

  • my second monitor which is connected by usb-C adapter doesn't work anymore
  • nvidia-smi returns me
NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn't communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running.
  • and I can't use CUDA anymore
>>> import torch
>>> torch.cuda.is_available()
False

I tried some answers so I did prime-select query then prime-select on-demand cause on-demand was the only option I had.

But my drivers are installed:

dpkg -l | grep "nvidia-"

So I have the right driver (?) with nvidia-driver-535 because ubuntu says me it's one for my GPU running ubuntu-drivers devices

Also I already had an issue with my external monitor and I had to config ubuntu to use integrated gpu (amd) for desktop apps and use my nvidia GPU only for CUDA

How to fix my actual issue to get back this behavior ?

I just found my answer:

sudo dkms autoinstall

In my case it worked
