    Some vendors make BIOS releases which only runs in Windows, some are able to run from a live boot of Freedos. I don't know what's the case for this HP.

    I haven't seen a BIOS upgrade that needed anything other than the new file in a decade; bung it on a USB drive, boot into BIOS, hit the upgrade button.

    Well, well. It WAS a decent struggle. HP BIOS update is rude and unstable. I did need another Win machine.

    Anyhow: BIOS updated, most recent version.

    Problem still persists.
    No HDMI with nomodeset, stripes without.

    Any further ideas, please?

    You have tested a number of different kernels which is great.
    Have you also tried a clean install of the daily build of 20.04?

    Re: HDMI not responding, NVIDIA, Ubuntu 18.04.3 fresh install

    Due to a rather unfortunate happenstance, this machine will be more or less than one I have to live with for now, so I am a bit reluctant to upgrade it to a daily build if it is unstable. (Better to not being able to present then not being able to write the presentation / code at all

    Anyhow, if you could point me to a way where I can squeeze out more useful debug info, I would be happy to. Maybe it is even input for devs / kernel devs, stc.

    Any ideas on that, please?

    The developers are going to ask you to test the development version in a clean install, that is 20.04.

    On the other hand, they don't have an opinion on what you install after the 20.04 test is over.

    Sadly I am not in the position to try a clean install now. I guess then I'll wait for new kernels and see if they help further. Thanks anyhow!

    It might be pointless waiting. Hardware support is defined by many other components than the kernel.
    Anyway, good luck.

    Then again, I'll have to wait for 20.04 to bereleased and upgradeable. Thanks.
