I have a PC equipped with NVIDIA GeForce 7200 GS / 7300 SE and running Lubuntu 20.04.
Recently after immigrating to Lubuntu, NVIDIA started a lot of problems like the screen somehow started to blink or sometimes everything freezes (even mouse/keyboard stop working) and the only way out of it is hard reboot.
As far as I know, Lubuntu by default uses
nouveau as graphic driver and when I disabled
nouveau.modeset=0 in the grub) apparently all those problems are gone.
lspci -k|grep -EA3 'VGA|3D|Display'01:00.0 04:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation G72 [GeForce 7200 GS / 7300 SE] (rev a1) Subsystem: XFX Pine Group Inc. G72 [GeForce 7200 GS / 7300 SE] Kernel modules: nvidiafb, nouveau
Now I think there is no
nouveau neither any other driver because 7200 GS/7300 SE is unsupported and I wasn't able to install any appropriate driver in any possible way. What should I do now? With no driver, can I still use the vga for stuffs like watching HQ movies or playing games as I used to in Win 7?
UPDATE: can't leave it that way; Lubuntu won't start and using the recovery mode I was able to login back. Need a solution!
