I am having multiple problems getting my Nvidia driver to run on ubuntu 18.04. I tried to factory reset and re-install everything from scratch but had no luck either. I realized during my bootup that I see the following errors;
( 4.802529) nvidia-gpu 0000:01:00.3: i2c timeout error e0000000 ( 4.802587) ucsi_ccg 0-0008: i2c_transfer failed -110 ( 4.802632) ucsi_ccg 0-0008: ucsi_ccg_init failed - -110
After I install the nvidia graphic drivers, my system no longer boots when the display port is connected. It simply freezes after I see the i2c messages posted above. I am only able to boot it up by connection HDMI. If I then plug my display port after my system booted it sometimes freezes my computer or simply does not work.
I have dual boot with windows and secure boot disabled. Booting up in windows works perfectly with no problems.
I have tried multiple options from online and have gotten none to work. Have reinstalled Ubuntu multiple times.
Here are some outputs which may be useful
