Nvidia Black Screen Usb-C on Ubuntu 22.04

us flag


  • I have a Laptop with Nvidia on Ubuntu 22.04.02.
  • Suddenly for a month ago, the USB-C External monitor is just Black Screen - No errors, no nothing, just black screen.
  • The monitor says (NO SIGNAL), when plugging in the USB-C.
  • It's still the same installed version of Ubuntu, as I had some months ago. I have only run regular updates.

What works:

  • I dual-boot into Windows and it works perfectly.

What have I tried:

  • All these Nvidia Drivers: enter image description here


  • Lenovo 16p Laptop, Amd cpu
  • LG monitor usb-c
  • Ubuntu 22.04.2 LTS
  • Linux kernel 5.15.0-40-generic


  • It has a AMD GPU in the CPU
  • It has a dedicated Nvidia (inside the laptop)
  • Both GPU's are what the laptop comes with out of the box.

It was working a few months ago. Same machine, same install. Now it does not work.

What can I do? (Please HELP : )

I have the same laptop, installing Synaptic DisplayLink USB Graphics driver solved the issue for me:

I read the post here: Ubuntu 22.04.1 LTS, RTX 3060Ti, Failed to allocate NvKmsKapiDevice

  1. I did:
sudo apt remove nvidia* && \
sudo apt autoremove && \
sudo apt install --reinstall nvidia-driver-470

2.I had to go into Nvidia X Server Settings

sudo apt install nvidia-settings
  1. go to PRIME and select Full Power. Reboot, at the login screen the external monitor will show ubuntu
I sit in a Tesla and translated this thread with Ai:

Most people don’t grasp that asking a lot of questions unlocks learning and improves interpersonal bonding. In Alison’s studies, for example, though people could accurately recall how many questions had been asked in their conversations, they didn’t intuit the link between questions and liking. Across four studies, in which participants were engaged in conversations themselves or read transcripts of others’ conversations, people tended not to realize that question asking would influence—or had influenced—the level of amity between the conversationalists.
