I am running into black screen problems after installing nvidia drivers in my notebook. I have a nvidia mobile 540 but everytime I try installing the driver, I boot to a black screen. Only the cursor shows.

My notebook has an intel onboard graphic and the nvidia. Without the drivers, it burns by watching videos.
