    NVIDIA Driver 460.80 freezes Linux system when plug monitor though DisplayPort

    Hi,

    I am not sure if this is the correct place to post my problem.

    I have got a problem for my dual monitor setup using Displayport with NVIDIA GPU, after I updated my nvidia driver or maybe some Linux stuff few weeks ago.
    I cannot enter the system when I plug my second monitor using the Displayport cable. And when the pc is on, then pluing Displayport cable will lead a dead to the system.

    Setup:


    Driver version: 460.80
    GPU: 2060 Super
    OS: Ubuntu 20.04
    Linux core: 5.4.0-77-generic
    monitors resolution: two iiyama 2560 * 1440 monitor (HDMI + Display port)



    I posted another issue in NVIDIA's forum but unfortunately got no answer yet.
    https://forums.developer.nvidia.com/...layport/182871

    I appreciate any help from the community.

    Best,
    Ge Li

    I read on here and I think on that forum that there is a Nvidia driver bug - with hdmi to displayport connections....especially with using driver version 460.

    So, try a newer driver - 465 or 470 beta and see if the experience is any different.

    Other things to try if possible:
    * hdmi to hdmi connection
    * Ubuntu 21.04 live iso - with driver 460, 465 or 470 (easy way to try a newer kernel to see if there's any difference)

    Advanced commands and steps to try - search the forum for the recent 'issues' with nvidia - some may apply to your case, some might not
    - search the nvidia developer forum - there were some recent posts about this - but, I think many involved laptops - nvidia hybrid graphics - may not apply to desktop cards, I dunno.

    Good luck.

    Where did you get the driver from?
