I just purchased a brand new laptop: Gaming Asus TUF A15 FX506II-AL022, AMD Ryzen 7 4800H, 8GB DDR4, SSD 512GB (nvme), NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650 Ti 4GB.I installed Mint Cinnamon 19.3--the latest as of today, and did all updates from a USB stick. When it first booted into GUI it said:
Your system is currently running without video hardware acceleration
So, I went ahead and tried to update drivers, but nothing was found.
I then proceeded and set it up, installed Skype, Zoom, mc, double commander, keepass, remmina with RDP plugin (hopefully I didn't miss anything). Finally, I did a restart and got this error from the title:
ucsi_acpi USBC000:00: PPM init failed (-110)
I did Alt + F1 to get into a working Command-line interface. Then, I rebooted and went into the boot menu, then recovery mode. I didn't see anything that would help, so then I just went with "resume" and it loaded up just fine in GUI, again showing the message with no "video hardware acceleration".
So I assume the problem is caused by some video driver. So basically I have 2 questions, assuming the problem is caused by the video driver:
How can I get some updated drivers for my nvidia card?
if above cannot be solved, how can I disable the driver so that I won't have to go into recovery mode and resume every time I reboot?
If my assumption is wrong, what else could cause this, and how to fix it?
