Saw in your other email this is Qubes 4.0rc4. Looks like you've tried all the basic steps and then some. Does this laptop have a way to use Intel integrated graphics? If so, check https://www.qubes-os.org/doc/intel-igfx-troubleshooting/ for the command line option to enable that driver. Nvidia and Linux generally don't work well together, and I don't have any of their hardware so don't have much insight there. AMD RX580s and earlier (maybe newer too but not a lot of data) work pretty well with Qubes, as does Intel video (usually). -- You received this message because you are subscribed to the Google Groups "qubes-users" group.
