Nvidia troubles, AGAIN

I’m running updated Rocky Linux 9.4, and once again, when I reboot Nvidia fails to start and I’m stuck with Nouveau.

graphics card is a Geforce GTX 750 Ti (rev a2)

/var/log/messages contains a number of entries about nvidia:

the final one being:

Jun 15 13:26:52 rockybox systemd[1]: Fallback to nouveau as nvidia did not load was skipped because of an unmet condition check (ConditionPathExists=!/sys/module/nvidia).

earlier entries (in order, but earlier than the above) are:

I’m struggling to figure this out and having no luck so far.

I’d appreciate helpful advice,… thanks in advance!
