Nvidia GPU Passthrough not working correctly

Hello, sorry to bother but I have been unable to get my Nvidia P40 GPU working correctly in an Ubuntu Server VM. I followed all the steps described here: https://www.wundertech.net/how-to-set-up-gpu-passthrough-on-proxmox/ . However, once I install the Nvidia drivers within the VM it becomes totally unusable, constantly spamming the same error message: NVRM: request_mem_region failed for 0M @ 0x0 this can occur when a driver such as rivatv is loaded and claims ownership of the devices registers.
Even after searching and trying several options I am still completely stumped, any help is appreciated!
