Re: New computer. Mint 20 "Check your video drivers"

SharkNinja, Did you try using the desktop script to switch GPUs. Your system is using the Nvidia GPU for the graphics rendering now. This is also needed because the HDMI port is usually internally connected to that GPU. If you don’t need to use an external monitor and don’t require the greater graph...

Re: Mint 20 cant install nvidia on hybrid laptop.

Your system has Secure Boot enabled. This prevents the Nvidia driver from loading. Either disable Secure Boot in the BIOS, or if you want it enabled for an added layer of security, then the Nvidia kernel modules that were built during the Nvidia driver installation will need to be signed. Many distr...

Yes, the driver should install, but it's uncertain if it will load without problems after switching to the Nvidia GPU.

Re: Will a MSI GeForce GT 1030 2GH LP OC work with Mint 20??

I suggest switching to the integrated graphics so you can boot to the desktop. Then open the Terminal and use this command to try installing the Nvidia driver: apt install nvidia-driver-440
After the installation, reboot but enter the BIOS and switch to the Nvidia GPU.

Re: [Solved] AMD RX570 crashes in idling, amdgpu vs Kernel

Try testing this kernel parameter added to the grub file, as done previously: amdgpu.dpm=0
If this works and you can notice that the GPU fan runs less often or at a slower speed than using the echo high command, then use this instead.
