    Hello,

    If you have an external GPU, turn off your computer, unplug it, and disconnect your GPU and boot into the computer again. That's what fixes it for me and some of my friends who also use GeForce GPUs. As for getting it so it can continue to use your GPU, you will have find the Linux drivers for your GPU and install them.
