So basically, I have an Nvidia GPU in this Laptop of mine..... :) It's a Geforce 960M..... Anywho, let me first state that neither FreeBSD nor Windows report problems with it, but on Linux (Ubuntu), it states that the "GPU has fallen off the bus"..... :< Why is this.....? It only happens when I resume from Suspend, and ONLY when I use any Driver but the Nouveau Driver..... :3 I thought I was one step closer to relocating Minecraft to Linux (with Shaders, which need a dedicated GPU), but after this issue, I can't even Suspend..... :< Can anyone help me with this.....? :3 Thank you SO much..... :) Have a good day, ok.....? :3

This is a common problem. Take a look at this and see if it helps:

Chances are that the card is seated fine, especially if it works using the Nouveau drivers and it works in Windows and BSD.
So I would guess that the solution in the above link is probably what you are looking for....
Hey good sir..... :3 I just wanted to report that, so far, it WORKS!!..... ^^ Yay!!..... :3 I thank you SO much..... :) Have a good day, ok.....? :3
