Bounty: 50

I have a fresh install of 18.04 on my desktop with Radeon Vega 64 GPU. Since I installed AMD GPU official driver, I have a collection of problems.

For a week, the mouse was lagging after a few hours. Now, the entire screen freezes after a few hours. There is no graphic output. If I turn off the monitor and start it again, there is no signal. However, the machine still works as a webserver.

I uninstalled AMD GPU with the command,

amdgpu-pro-uninstall

but then, Ubuntu does not boot into the graphical interface (freezes before the purple screen).

I tried to blacklist the driver, according to this answer.

Again, Ubuntu does not come up.

It is frustraiting, as my machine is practically useless because of this stupid driver. I am thinking of buying an Nvidia GPU.

Do you know a safe method to get rid of AMD GPU driver? Because I don’t remember any of these problems with the fresh install of Ubuntu 18.04. I believe the native firmware worked much better.
