    Startup problems with nvidia driver


    I just installed a used GeForce 750Ti and went to download the proprietary driver so I can play games and get faster video exporting with my video editing. After downloading the wrong driver, having Ubuntu studio automatically removing kernels that weren't working, and then re-installing a correct driver, the video card is now displaying on my TV. However, when I have the bios set as the PCie as the primary video, the computer doesn't register when I put the password in for the encryption. It also doesn't display as clear. But when I have the bios set as the integrated video, it will allow me to insert the password for the disk encryption, and starts up like normal. What is missing so I can just run video from the video card?

    I do not know what the problem is, but for anyone to help you they will need more information.

    What version of Ubuntu (I am assuming cause you said Ubuntu studio) are you running?

    They may also need to know more about the hardware, what kind of motherboard ect. or comptuer model if it is a pre-built unit.

    Also, Look here and see if it has your answer. BinaryDriverHowto/Nvidia


    Thanks,

    Yeah, I'm using Ubuntu studio, 16.1 I believe. It's called Yakkety Yak.

    It's a pre-build unit
    Intel DQ670W motherboard
    Intel core i5 2400 3.1 GHz
    6GB DDR3

    A few minutes after I posted the thread, I retried the restart to see if it would do the same thing, but it's not. Now, it gives me an error code it was doing before, the error code is
    [ 1.431770] tpm tpm0: A TPM error (7) occurred attempting to read a pcr value

    Does the next line read:

    Code:
    No TPM chip found, activating TPM-bypass!
    Thanks,

    please consider using an LTS release: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Releases

    about your gpu:
    please start the system, and enter this command:
    Code:
    lspci -k | grep -iEA5 'vga|3d'
    and post its output here, incl. the command itself.

    edit:
    erm, i have no clue how disk encryption and graphic cards could be related and likely won't be able to help with that.
    i kind of just assumed that you have a standard gpu driver problem...

    No, the code I wrote is the only one that it displays.

    I also finally figured out how to configure the settings to use two monitors, because that's the other issue I was having, and in some ways is a temporary solution.

    I like the display settings more than the ARandR software I downloaded.

    Ok, I restarted the computer to see if I could put in the command code in safe mode, but it timed me out, so I put it in the terminal.

    I am a little confused by this sentence. Are you saying you enter the password and it fails to decrypt the disk with an error message. Or are you saying when you would normally enter your password the screen fails to show.

    Thanks,

    Doss

    P.S. Do you know if your disk encryption is using the TPM chip? (I would not expect this to be the case.)

    When I enter in the password, the computer doesn't register that I'm putting it in, there's no error message. It also displays the ubuntu studio title and the encryption box in a 360 pixel or so resolution, like when a Playstation 4 changes settings from an error or an update.

    The problem is solved! When I re-enter the command to double check what the computer is using/recognizing, this pops up.

    Now, it's using the nvidia_375 kernel. All I did was switch to Ubuntu Studio 16.0.4 LTS because of this problem, and the added problem of nvidia software and the ubuntu software quit recognizing my TV as a second monitor.

    However, it's not using my sound card currently when Ubuntu is using the same kernel driver both times, but that will need to be a different thread.
