Nvidia drivers boot into black screen (after upgrade on Desktop system with Intel iGPU)

Hello everyone! This is my first post here, but since I installed Manjaro (my first linux distro) 4 months ago I have been a lurker in this forum. Please forgive me if I do not provide enough information or ask newbie questions, I will try to give as many details as possible beforehand.

A few days ago I upgraded my Desktop PC running Intel iGPU with a brand new RTX3060:

I read through the Manjaro wiki on how to Configure Graphics Cards, so I initially tried to install the drivers using the Hardware Configuration GUI in the Settings. Prior to further research, I tried installing the video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-470xx-prime. But after decrypting everything I saw was a black screen. It is just a black screen, neither I get an error message, nor can I access TTY (Ctrl+Alt+Function keys do nothing). Currently I only have one of my two screens connected via DP to my mainboard. After installation of the nvidia drivers, I can only see the decryption dialog when I keep the DP plugged into my mainboard. But the moment Manjaro boots up there is only black. Plugging the DP cable into the GPU after decryption does not give me an image either.

After loading up the Timeshift btrfs snapshot via grub, I looked at my journalctl file and there was an nvidia error talking about module verification failed, tainting kernel or the like. If you need details I can reproduce the error, since I do not have the journal entry anymore because I always forget to not restore my home when restoring my Timeshift snapshots. Let me know if there are better ways to check for errors instead of the journalctl if I cant seem to open TTY during the blackscreen.

Then I did some research and came to the conclusing that configuring my Desktop system to use the hybrid drivers is not worth the time and effort and I am better off just using my dGPU for everything, so I just tried the “normal” nvidia drivers from there on.

I also tried installations using the command

sudo mhwd -a pci free 0300

and

sudo mhwd -a pci nonfree 0300

both commands install the video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-470xx-prime on my system, so I cannot use these. I tried all of the recommended drivers that are shown in the GUI but none of these would work. mhwd -l && mhwd -li:

Warning: No installed USB configs!

I have been trying things out and looked up a lot posts for days now, but most of the time people that are having problems with their drivers on systems with iGPU are having issues on their laptops. I am currently on Kernel 5.17 but I also tried out drivers on Kernel 5.15. I am not sure though if I tried every combination possible.

I am at a loss if the problem is a wrong driver, wrong kernel, wrong configuration or a bug or a combination of everything? It would be great if someone could help me out. There are so many factors to consider here that I am totally overwhelmed and don’t know where to look anymore.

Thanks so much for such a fast reply.

so if you would install :video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-prime , you would be stuck at black screen? and tty would not work?
and the nvidia tainting kernel, i have the same message and nvidia works without problems…

Yes, neither of those video-hybrid drivers did not work for me. However I only installed the drivers from the GUI, I did no other configurations such as manually installing nvidia optimus GUIs or the like. I kind of gave up on the hybrid drivers anyways because I read that they require a lot of tinkering to make them work on Desktop. Currently my only goal is to get my dGPU working, and have the iGPU only in case something goes wrong with nvidia drivers (as I read they often tend to go wrong on Linux distros).

Just to be clear: After booting into blackscreen, I press Ctrl+L Alt and Function keys to open the TTY, but it did not open (I opened it once 2 months ago after having a package issue so I know that it usually works). Is TTY necessary to discover the reason behind the blackscreen? Would TTY normally work without proper display drivers?

can you now test if tty works?
i have no idea why you couldnt enter into tty when it broke…
you can enable logging during boot, so you can check where its exactly stuck …but since you cant possibly enter tty, you would probably have to use chroot anyways to try to troubleshoot it…

TTY works normally during my kde session when running on iGPU. Do you know what kind of driver and kernel combo I should be running without problems on my rig? Because then I would be just trying it again and see if I really cannot get into TTY. Or, is there something I can filter on in my journalctl that could be a troublemaker?

Do I have to do any other configuration after an install of the driver, since it never worked? Maybe give the nvidia drivers a priority over the iGPU?

first do you have manjaro usb?.. so when it breaks again, you can use it to chroot, uninstall the drivers and also retrieve logs
then we enable boot logging and install the prime drivers, and check …

Yes, I have a working live USB, I just checked it again (it has been a while since I last used it). Although I have to start from the USB selecting the free drivers, because if I select the proprietary ones the starting log freezes after the line [ OK ] Started Simple Display Manager. I guess this is normal because I am running iGPU?

How can I enable boot logging? Are you sure I should be installing the hybrid drivers again and not the normal nvidia ones (since I am on desktop)? And which should I rather choose video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-prime or video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-470xx-prime?

Also, I think it is worth noting that it could be that I installed Manjaro with free drivers 4 months ago (I only wanted to use iGPU back then). Now, the nvidia drivers are all listed as nonfree. Does this have anything to do with my issue, or is this selection during the installation of Manjaro only to find out if the user wants to use iGPU or dGPU?

Thanks already for your answers. I hope we can identify the problem soon! :slight_smile:

so you already booted into the live usb?
and even with the usb with the older nvidia drivers you still getiing black screen?
do you have dual boot with windows? if so test if nvidia works under windows… just to make sure its not hardware related…
and you enable the logging in the installed system
and also youre using btrfs? that needs different commands to enable chroot

Yes, I tested the live USB to see if it still works. I don’t know about older drivers, though. Normally, I had no nvidia drivers installed at all, when I checked the live USB and selected nonfree drivers I did not managed to get in as described above. Just to be sure, my DP cable was always connected to the MB when booting from live USB. Should I have switched the cable to GPU after that?

I have no dual boot, but I do have another separate Windows PC. I could try and boot this one up tomorrow with the new GPU and see if it works. (Sucks because it was a hassle to build the GPU in, its an mITX build :melting_face: But it is better to check indeed).

Do you have a resource that you recommend to enable logging in the installed system? Yes, my drive is a one partition encrypted BTRFS (I know, not ideal but it worked so far).

since you cant boot with usb using nonfree drivers, and the iso is older with older drivers, and you cant boot your normal installation with the newest nvidia drivers, definitely test the nvidia hardware in windows if you have the option…
you can enable it directly in the grub menu by pressing the E button and removing this parameter: quiet - this will only enable logging in the current boot, if you want to make it permanent then, you have to edit the grub conf in /etc/default …
but first check the nvidia hardware, then we will continue …

Thank you so much for your help so far. I will check the hardware tomorrow and let you know! :smiley:

So, little update from me: It is definitely not a hardware related problem as far as the GPU goes, just built my GTX1070 out of the Windows PC, built RTX3060 in, booted up, worked flawlessly. It was running games and was shown in Open Hardware Manager, Windows Settings and Nvidia Control Panel. Running the latest NVIDIA drivers version 512.95.

My question would be now, how should I continue? Are you sure I should be trying with the hybrid drivers again?

Also, more newbie questions: I boot up from the live USB and select the nonfree drivers, but the DP cable is connected to the mainboard. It has to be because I would not see anything on my monitor otherwise when booting up, right? Suppose everything was working correctly, the GPU should then take over calculating even though my cable is connected to the mainboard? Or do I have to plug the cable into the GPU after selecting nonfree drivers?

hmm i dont know about the mainboard/gpu cable, since your nvidia hardware is being detected … but yes try that, plug tha cable into the gpu instead and see…
also since you already tried it with the hybrid drivers, we should try it with the normal drivers…

I tried again booting into the live USB with nonfree drivers but I got stuck again at Starting Display Manager. I had my second monitor plugged into the dGPU via HDMI, no signal; and switching the DP cable into the dGPU didn’t give an image either.

I installed the nonfree drivers “video-nvidia-470xx” now and will retry to boot with logging enabled on kernel 5.17. I thought I will leave the installation output here, there are quite some warnings during the installation:

Are those warnings normal? Wish me luck for the next bootup…

hopefully it works… if not, try entering again into TTY and see if it will work this time…

I have good news and I have bad news. Lots of them. Good news first: At least I got some error logs to show. Bad news: The errors logs.

What happend: Before reboot after the installation of above drivers I thought I might log off to see what happens. Instead of logging off and showing the login screen I get a black screen but can access TTY. So I log in and try startx. This is what came instead, remember I was not rebooted, I only tried a logoff and login before rebooting with new drivers:

Looking superb already, so it was time to reboot. I typed reboot into the TTY and the PC took roughly 3min until it finally rebooted. Rebooted with above drivers installed. Black screen. Funnily enough still no TTY access. Plugged my second monitors HDMI into the dGPU. Tried all the combinations of enabling iGPU Multi Monitor, choosing Primary Display (Auto, iGPU, dGPU) in the UEFI, no luck at all. When I had Multi Monitor in UEFI enabled and had my DP cable in the mainboard and the HDMI (2nd monitor) in the dGPU, it would project the encryption prompt on the second monitor aswell, after decrypting the dGPUs fans run like 2 seconds and then blackscreen on both monitors again.

Also, before installing the above drivers, I edited the grub config. But when I checked in the grub menus config the quiet parameter was still there. So I removed it from the grub menu and this is what a non silent boot gave me:


Nothing really happend after that Started Time & Date Service for like 2 minutes. So now I am currently in a snapshot again and will restore it soon (without restoring home this time, to keep the logs.)

Edit: This is a selection an error that I found in journalctl:

Is this more helpful? I am very confused.

you have there some unusual errors but first this:
pcieport 0000:00:01.0: AER: Corrected error received
are you now back in your system?

I am still in the restored snapshot, looking for clues in the internet. But if I can restore my snapshot and switch back to Intel iGPU, tell me.
