My fedora 31 system running an NVIDIA GPU failed recently after partially running for several months. I was unable to find the problem source - it occurred when I rebooted and may have been triggered by a system update. Thanks for any help, I know this is messy.
My installation had used the rpmfusion howto and included cuda11.0. So I tried to uninstall nvidia and start over, again using the rpmfusion howto.
I find the GPU
bash-5.0# /sbin/lspci | grep -e VGA
00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation UHD Graphics 620 (rev 07)
09:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GP107 [GeForce GTX 1050] (rev a1)
There is some evidence of the nvidia installation.
modinfo -F version nvidia
The kernel-devel modules are installed.
I disabled my epel repo since it seemed to have some conflicts with rpmfusion. My working repolist is

adobe-linux-x86_64 Adobe Systems Incorporated

I can no longer install the akmod for nvidia.
dnf install akmod-nvidia

A possible clue for why I’ve lost contact with the GTX1050 gpu is a message in /var/log/messages ( which only runs on shutdown)

Anything to be gained by upgrading to fed33?
