hello. i recently attempted to install nvidia drivers. when i tried to install them it said nvidia-intel-hybrid already installed and that i cant install nvidia drivers. so i uninstalled nvidia intel hybrid drivers and installed nvidia drivers. it said that it was successful. i restarted my pc but when it was booting into Manjaro it gave me this error: “[FAILED] Load Kernel Modules” and nothing else. when i tried to go into my BIOS to maybe boot off live cd it just gives me a black screen with an underscore. I probably messed up for doing my own thing and not following instructions online, but im wondering if theres a fix for this or if im going to have to send my laptop for repair. Ty
There have been reports in the past about problems accessing the bios, I found 2 (both acer machines):
Check for a BIOS update, when that machine is running again.
As to this problem, first boot into single user session without graphics:
- press esc (repeatedly) on boot to access grub menu
- press e to edit the current boot entry
- edit the line starting with
linux /boot/vmlinuz...and append a (literal)
3to it (separated by a space)
- press f10 to boot the adjusted entry
That should boot up the machine in single user mode, where you can undo your actions:
- remove the non-fitting/-working graphics driver:
$ sudo mhwd -r pci video-nvidia
- re-install the previously working one
$ sudo mhwd -i pci video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-prime
Thank you! this worked. now how do i safely install nvidia drivers without breaking my system again?
video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-prime are nvidia drivers for a hybrid setup (intel processor with integrated graphics).
So im using integrated graphics for KDE but want to use my Nvidia graphics card for games. How would i set that up on my machine?
I believe what you’re looking for is the
prime-run command. Although, I might be wrong as I only have a desktop, but you should test it. From the terminal, run:
If that works you should just have to prefix every game you wish to use the nvidia GPU for with
