No grub menu since update

Hello,

Since one of the last updates, i have a black screen until the session open, i can’t access grub menu or bios as the screen only turns on when the session open after blinking 4 or 5 times, even if i log off to change to x11 or wayland or change user the screen become black too, i don’t know what to do it’s like the driver or backlight only load when the session is open.

Maybe I’m wrong but this 0% looks suspicious to me:

I would reconsider the suggestion to reinstall the GRUB and go for a:

sudo grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --efi-directory=/boot/efi --bootloader-id=Garuda --recheck
sudo update-grub

From your install. No need to try booting from live USB and chroot.

sudo grub-install --target=x86_64-efi --efi-directory=/boot/efi --bootloader-id=Garuda --recheck
sudo update-grub

i did this but nothing changed

i tried the

sudo reflector -a6 -f5 --save /etc/pacman.d/mirrorlist

but it tells me Warning extra cannot sync, i’ve waited like 10 minutes but all servers cannot sync

sudo dkms autoinstall

do nothing, it just get to another line to write another command

To be more specific, the screen is completely black, no backlight it’s like it only turns on when the session open, the keyboard light turn on normaly immediately after boot but not the screen

Use the link I post, black screen,

If your system is destroyed and our help is of no use, make a backup of your important files and reinstall it.

that’s what i wanted to do, but the bios also have a black screen so i can’t change the boot order to reinstall

Thats a hardware problem, may try the backlight Fn keys

how could this be a hardware problem, the screen light is ok once the session is open, it’s just turns off on boot or if i log out, i can play games, put the light up or down when i’m in my session, the FN key works fine in the session but do nothing when the screen is off when i’m not logged in

I can’t speak to your situation but I’ve always been able to at least get into my bios when needed. It can take awhile but I could get into it. If you are sure you cannot get into your bios at all I have to agree with SGS that you do have a hardware issue.

I think i found the problem, it was propably the open source driver, i removed nvidia dkms thinking it was the problem but it was a mistake as now i have just a black screen guess i messed up and there is notging to do to fix this?

Well now i have permanent black screen i don’t know why i decided to remove dkms, i thought it was the problem because of the extra db not syncing and installing wrong i really choose the worst decision

turns out it was a good idea to remove DKMS, after i turned off computer and waited like 20 minutes the laptop boot normaly i have grub menu and access to bios so it was the DKMS driver i guess i mark it as solved and thanks to everyone for trying to help me

I’ve reinstalled Nvidia DKMS and everything seems to work correctly so all good for now
