    Display issues with 22.04/nvidia 4.70

    I have been running 20.04 since it came out. Last week I installed 22.04 onto a different partition. All was going fine for a while. THen my display started going off and I am not able to wake it up. I have to press/hold the power button. This has caused my profile in xfce to get corrupt on top of still happening.
    I tried to load the previous version 20.04 from grub, but when I get the login screen and enter u/p it just circles back to the login screen. I suspect it is due to preferences in my account that are now set for 22.04.
    I want to reset my user account so I can continue using 20.04 as it didn't have this display issue.
    How to I go about getting my account reset so I can use 20.04?

    Have you tried selecting 20.04 from A Bios boot menu. Like <F+12 or enter> at first start.
    Code:
    efibootmgr
    BootCurrent: 0004
    Timeout: 0 seconds
    BootOrder: 0004,0003,0001,0000,2001,2002,2003
    Boot0000* openSUSE
    Boot0001* opensuse-secureboot
    Boot0003* arch
    Boot0004* kaisen
    Boot2001* EFI USB Device
    Boot2002* EFI DVD/CDROM
    Boot2003* EFI Network

    Ok when 20.04 circles back to the login screen Press <F2> login through tty or the terminal prompt.
    Now remove the nvidia driver.

    So do I reinstall it after (if I can even login)?

    I just tried and still stuck in login loop.
    I did ctrl+alt+F2 and logged in
    sudo apt remove nvidia-driver-470
    reboot
    no joy.

    Sorry to hear that, I assume you have back-ups for a reinstall right?
    We could keep diving down the rabbit hole, and may get lucky.
    Best bet and suggestion now is a re-install.....

    After doing
    Code:
    sudo apt remove --purge nvidia
    Then on first boot after, use the nomodeset boot option at editing the grub boot screen, as a kernel boot parameter. Then on bot, install your NVidia drivers... Unfortunately, myself owning and running NVidia on my hardware, these kinds of things have become second nature. LOL

    You didn't mention which NVidia GPU you are running(?)
    Code:
    sudo lspci | grep -i 'vga'

    GPU is :
    01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GP106BM [GeForce GTX 1060 Mobile 6GB] (rev a1)

    When I tried to purge nvidia, got "package nvidia is not installed"
    tab line completion shows:
    nvidia-dkms-470
    nvidia-kernel-common-470
    nvidia-utils-470
    nvidia-settings
    nvidia-compute-utils-470

    So, to clarify, I was not having this problem before installing 22.04.
    I was booting 20.04 just fine, never lost display.
    I installed 22.04 to second partition. Started having display issues (screens went black had to force shutdown).
    Tried loading 20.04 again and have login loop only when trying 20.04.

    UPDATE:
    I decided to try the Advanced settings for ubuntu from grub and see that there are 2 kernels 5.15.0-57 & 58. So I tried to boot 57. My second monitor isn't detected when using 57 but it is when using 58. Not sure what that means if anything.
