Troubles with starting the system with GPU - Fedora 26

Hello everyone, I am using Lenovo w530 with Fedora 16. I have Intel integrated graphics and Nvidia quadro k1000m. I don't have any problems when I am working with the integrated, but sometimes I need the Nvidia GPU. When I select Discrete Graphics from the BIOS, I get the following error, when the system starts:

pci 0000:00:01.0: ASPM: Could not configure a common clock

and the system cannot run. I did a research and found a solution, which is disabling the Security-Visualization-VT-D option. When I did this, I receive even some more errors:

pci 0000:00:01.0: ASPM: Could not configure a common clock

Bluetooth: hci0 sending frame failed (-19)

Bluetooth: hci0 command 0x1001 tx timeout

Bluetooth: hci0: BCM: Reading local version info failed (-110)

And the screen stays like that. It even starts to flicker sometimes. The system managed to start once, but I don't know why.

I do have drivers for the GPU and the problems occur only with it, never with the integrated graphics.

Thank you in advance!

What (which and from where) drivers for Nvidia GPU do you have installed?

I downloaded the driver from the Nvidia webpage. It is NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-384.69 and it should be the right one

You'd be better to install from Fedora-specific repositories like RPMFusion. BTW, you are not forced to install NVidia drivers to use the nvidia card. The default nouveau usually works fine too (and you should be able to run a program with your nvidia card by right clicking on it and selecting "Launch with Descreet Graphics Card" (might not be exactly this, but was something similar).

But if you want a better performance, you should install binary drivers from Fedora-specific repositories.

I have the exact same problem.

I have a Thinkpad W530 and freshly installed F26, updated. I get these problems when disabling the integrated graphics. But these errors happen even without installing any nvidia drivers.

Some clarifications, for me there are three different scenarios that appear to be rather random which I encounter during boot: - I get only the clock message, a blinking prompt underneath disappears and the system is stuck and won't boot up - I get the above plus some more bluetooth driver messages, in 50% the system starts up after, otherwise stuck - I get the clock message, prompt underneath blinks and system starts up.
