[SOLVED] Linux Mint Cinnamon always booting into Software Rendering Mode

I moved my desk, monitors and desktop tower to another location and plugged everything back in, but I'm only booting into software rendering mode. I'm not quite sure why this happened. Right before moving everything, I was using the computer normally and everything was working fine. Now, aside from booting into software rendering mode, my second monitor is also not connecting. I've tried to edit my GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT in grub based on a few suggestions I found online, but that did not work. I also tried to use Timeshift to restore a previous version, but that did not work either. I updated to the most recent kernel and made sure that my graphics drivers (nvidia 440) were still installed. I'm not sure what I should be looking for or how I should be troubleshooting this. If anyone has any recommendations, I would really appreciate it.

I will try to provide as much initial information as I can, but if there's anything else needed, please let me know.

Code: Select all

glxgears runs but ends with
XIO:  fatal IO error 11 (Resource temporarily unavailable) on X server ":0"
      after 100306 requests (100306 known processed) with 0 events remaining.

The obvious thing to check at this stage - did the move inadvertently involve swapping monitor cables or plugging monitors into different ports? A bad cable that was OK in the original position but following the move has revealed itself as bad? Everything properly seated?

Turns out that when I installed Bumblebee, I never restarted my computer. Bumblebee blacklisted my nvidia drivers for some reason, so when the computer booted back up, the drivers weren't loaded up. Once i uninstalled Bumblebee and deleted the blacklist file then rebooted, everything started working properly again.
