    @Haxk20 it had been working well for a month. It's some update that fucked it up

    @Bitwise yes. Nvidia drivers, worked fine for a month or so

    @RantSomeWhere tried most of them already. Nothing helps. To think I saved up for ages to buy this machine is frustrating

    @RantSomeWhere it is NVIDIA. I was thinking of removing all nvidia libraries and drivers, so that the os picks up on my intel graphics again

    @abhinavr888 If you have intel graphics too and are okay with not using your nvidia card, just put

    blacklist nouveau
    blacklist nvidia

    in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf by first switching to TTY (ctrl+alt+f2), then logging in as root and running

    # echo "blacklist nouveau" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
    # echo "blacklist nvidia" >> /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf

    and then

    # reboot

    @abhinavr888 If it doesn't work after that, try running

    # mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.bak
    # reboot

    I have been using Ubuntu for about 3 years now. In this time I've tried switching to Nvidia drivers about 10 times - tested drivers. And I swear to god, fuck you Nvidia because it has never worked. Trust the good old drivers and don't ever use Nvidia drivers.

    @abhinavr888 Okay you can message me at telegram if you want (username is kenogo) and I can try to continue helping there. There's still some things I need to know but I don't think it's useful to spam the comments here. Instead it'd be better to just return here with the solution.
