Yesterday I installed the
nvidia-driver-525 for my laptop with a GTX 1660ti and an AMD CPU with integrated graphics.
Everything worked fine (meaning I could see output on both screens), until I booted my laptop today. My external display works (supposedly the output of the nvidia gpu), but my internal laptop display displays a single underscore. I can switch to TTY1 and the TTY shows up on the internal display.
When I go to display settings, I can only see the external display. The internal display doesn't show up there.
If I unplug my external screen, nothing shows up on the internal screen and the only thing I see is the single underscore at the left of the screen.
I tried restarting lightdm, without any success.
I don't know what causes this and I hope someone can help. Thanks!
