HP EliteBook 1050 G1 Nvidia Adventures and overall help needed

Hello again,

I re-installed, twice actually since after I tried the install with the Prop. drivers after installation was done I got stuck on the boot screen.
On my second go I did use the open source drivers and install success!
After the installation was complete I updated the system using pacman -Syu and after a reboot I went to the Hardware configuration and installed the proprietary drivers as it shows:

Again I think the driver doesn't work, my second monitor doesn't want to start nor the Nvidia settings.
As advised I am paste-ing again the requested logs:

Configuration seems correct.
There is still no nvidia card in Xorg and systemd.
You may confirm with udevadm.

It's a vendor issue.
@librewish what do you think?

Anything else I could try :slight_smile: ?

Check BIOS for a setting about GPUs.
It could be that the firmware does this.

I have 4 settings:
Intel
Hybrid
Nvidia
Auto

It's currently set at auto

So I was correct in my suspicion.
Choose one of the other options.
It's a laptop, so maybe you can use Hybrid, letting Linux handle both GPUs, depending on the work load.
It's up to you. :man_shrugging:

I've set it to hybrid and again the situation is the same, also using Nvidia only it doesn't want to start the system.
This is how my hw manager looks atm:

I've tried before that to uninstall the Prop. drivers and when I swithched to hybrid my second monitor managed to light up.

Were there any new updates that just were pushed, or I installed some old ones?

Does it matter?
Probably re-installation, reboot have done the job.

Have fun! :wink:

Hey thank you very much for the time spend and effort.
I seemed to manage to stress test the current configuration and all looks fine and dandy.

Just a couple of more questions I have before I go :slight_smile: :slight_smile:

You've mentioned that with this setup the system is wise enough to select between Intel and Nvidia GPU based on the load, did I understood this correctly.
Also if I try some games I suppose Nvidia GPU should be automatically set as primary to use?

Thanks once more I hope this huge topic can be of a help to other as well!

Decent explanations can be read where appropriate :wink:
