From Graphics issues after installing Ubuntu 16.04 with NVIDIA graphics I can say that I've tried all the different drivers and even the
nouveau won't work. Tried the
purge and what follows in different variations as listed. I've been running
16.04 since it got out and the problem occured two days ago starting with the second screen flickering after an hour or two, and then it turns black. Now it turns black almost immediatlely after boot or awakening from sleep. Ubuntu detects the second screen at screen settings and the third screen works properly, but it uses the
hdmi input so I guess that's that.
Edit 1: just wanted to add that I've tried fresh reinstall of the system and don't have secure boot. This is a problem that have endured the whole summer and I've sadly not found a solution yet.
Edit 2: Just done the purge method explained in the link again with the newest
370.28, without success.
Edit 3: Still not working as of
Edit 4: Not working as of
378.13, however (and this will sound funny and make someone laugh) I've found out that a temporary solution for me, is by turning off and on the second screen somewhere between 10-25 times. This makes it stay on the rest of the day for reasons unknown to me.
Any help will be more than appreciated!
Thanks in advance.
