I need to install NVidia drivers on my new desktop. For this I was told that while installing Ubuntu I should cross the options "
nolapic" and "
nomodeset" so that
nouveau drivers are not installed.
I did that and after installation machine is not taking any input from keyboard at all. Also I can move mouse cursor on screen but left/right clicks are not working. I have tried installing 3 times with same procedure but with same result.
keyboard works properly at time of installation so keyboard is definitely not a problem.
So my questions are: 1. Is is correct to cross these options while installing Ubuntu if one wants to install NVidia drivers? 2. If answer to above question is YES, then what can be possible reason that mouse/keyboard not working?
