comment Installing NVIDIA driver causes black screen (750M)
That's not the issue. What I mean is that it won't boot properly, with just a flashing cursor displayed.

Okay, my system is back up, but is there a good solution for successfully installing proprietary drivers that didn't end with the error I had before?

comment Installing NVIDIA driver causes black screen (750M)
Okay, tried some more experimenting today. When I got the error I simply rebooted, and the next time I was able to install the driver. However, now the system only boots into a command line, and when trying sudo startx I get the following error: NVIDIA: API mismatch: the NVIDIA kernel module has version 304.88, but this NVIDIA driver component has version 319.17. Please make sure that the kernel module and all NVIDIA driver components have the same version. How do I fix this, or at least return the OS back to its normal state with nouveau?

My laptop doesn't have Optimus (the integrated graphics are disabled).

I just tried the method and the link. First the installer complained about nouveau still being enabled even though I removed the package and wrote a file to disable it, then I got an installation error. Help? If you need me to I can run the process again to get the exact error message.
