Thread: Nvidia gives a black screen

  1. #1

    Default Nvidia gives a black screen

    I have severe problems in getting anything other than a blank screen when booting OpenSuSE Leap 15.2 with the nvidia drivers.
    It is not the hardware, because I have a multiboot system and Kubuntu just works fine with nvidia.
    My card is:

    NVIDIA Corporation GP106 [GeForce GTX 1060 3GB] (rev a1)

    The repo is this one:

    https://download.nvidia.com/opensuse/leap/15.2

    Here the install log:

    Downloading nvidia-gfxG05-kmp-default (download size 11,41 MiB)
    Downloading nvidia-glG05 (download size 26,33 MiB)
    Downloading nvidia-computeG05 (download size 18,49 MiB)
    Downloading x11-video-nvidiaG05 (download size 76,86 MiB)
    Installing nvidia-gfxG05-kmp-default-450.66_k5.3.18_lp152.19-lp152.28.1.x86_64.rpm (installed size 62,55 MiB)
    Installing nvidia-glG05-450.66-lp152.28.1.x86_64.rpm (installed size 126,33 MiB)
    Installing nvidia-computeG05-450.66-lp152.28.1.x86_64.rpm (installed size 121,23 MiB)
    Installing x11-video-nvidiaG05-450.66-lp152.28.1.x86_64.rpm (installed size 265,62 MiB)

    A reboot after installation faces me with a blank screen ('no signal', it complains).

    When rebooting with 'nomodeset 3' and removing the nvidia modules, I get a messages about pubkeys and MOK.
    This would make me think that my Z370-A PRO Mobo is booting in the secure mode and the problem arises from there.
    However, it is not because the system does not boot in secure mode.
    The only way to configure the system to boot in secure mode is by enabling Windows 10 WHQL Support (normally disabled).
    And even when enabling it, I still find that secure boot support is disabled.

    The problem popped up one evening when updating nvidia. But what causes it I cannot guess.

    zypper se -si nvidia:

    Loading repository data...
    Reading installed packages...
    No matching items found.

    These results are given when no nvidia rpm is installed.
    In my previous post I mentioned nvidia module but I meant to say nvidia rpm.

    Install the nvidia drivers:
    Code:
    zypper in x11-video-nvidiaG05
    That should install all 4 rpms.

    Reboot

    Reboot
    That certainly will install the rpms. Have done that and so far, the reboot will always result in a blank screen.

    Hi Ed
    Can you confirm secure boot is disabled, when you boot from the system can you press the required key to get to the system boot menu and select the efi file to boot from? If so select the grubx64.efi file not shim.efi. If not if you boot to run level 3 (multi-user.target) and show the output from;

    Code:
    efibootmgr -v
    Oh, and I'm guessing power supply is ok for the card (400Wmin and 120W for the card) and you have connected the 6-pin power plug to the card?

    A have a dual boot system. Ubuntu has no problems with using the nvidia drivers, them being the 440. Not the 450, like on OpenSuSE.

    Hi
    Then check booting is in non-secure mode.... I prefer the hardway here (current nvidia driver 455.23.04).
