    Nvidia hibernation black screen Lenovo p51

    Hello,
    i have a problem with my p51 Thinkpad. Activating ubuntu from hibernation leads to a black screen. I tried to switch to nouveau (pk-client-error-quark : ..... ) or previous nvidia drivers (same problem). Is there a solution for this problem?

    Thank you. The Nvidia model is

    Code:
    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: Intel Corporation HD Graphics P630 [8086:591d] (rev 04)
    01:00.0 3D controller [0302]: NVIDIA Corporation GM206GLM [Quadro M2200 Mobile] [10de:1436] (rev a1)
    the driver is nvidia driver 460. I did the ubuntu standard installation, no changes afterwards.

    Driver version is correct for the Quadro M2200 Mobile. Hopefully you didn't made too much experiments without deleting the previous versions as that can create compatibility issues.

    Now, you should update UEFI ("BIOS") before further troubleshooting.

    And please explain exactly what you're using. Suspension or hibernation. The former is supported and should work fine with the proprietary driver. The latter ISN'T. Hibernation has been deemed problematic and was removed years ago from Ubuntu or Windows.

    I checked the current Bios Version

    Code:
    BIOS Information
            Vendor: LENOVO
            Version: N1UET80W (1.54 )
            Release Date: 11/05/2020
            Address: 0xE0000
            Runtime Size: 128 kB
            ROM Size: 16 MB
    Lenovo Bios update on Lenovo Page:


    • BIOS Update Utility (Linux)
    • 1.54
    • 27 Nov 2020
    • 5.52 MB
    • Critical


    So Bios should be up to date? I had a dual boot system previous to this setup (ubuntu only). Bios was updated via Windows i think.
