comment How do I get my blacked out ttys back?
As per guidelines (askubuntu.com/help/reopen-questions) this is a "Please reopen" request. I don't believe this is too localized -- it happens on all my machines with nVidia proprietary installed. "Unlikely to help future visitors" is incorrect: I am a future visitor, and I'm certainly hoping the answers will help me fix this exact problem. I don't think the question needs to be edited or reworded, it perfectly describes the issues I have.

comment Intel NUC No Sound over hdmi
It's been a while since I've used Alsa, I think you need to press F6 and select the HDMI device and make sure it's enabled?

comment Lubuntu : session won't open : where to find the logs
Hmm, it doesn't look like a happy log, but as you say I'm not sure it's related or how to go about fixing it. There is a question with similar symptoms (askubuntu.com/questions/223501/…) but it's Ubuntu, not Lubuntu, so not sure if any of the suggested answers apply. Not sure what things you could try sorry, hopefully someone else can suggest something!

Have you tried running alsamixer, to see if the HDMI audio device is active? I normally install and run pavucontrol to use Pulse Audio for configuration, not sure if that's what you did?

So you can get to a terminal okay? Can you check /var/log/Xorg.0.log and see if there is anything that looks like an error?

comment Radeon r7 reported as hd 8600 “oland” on Ubuntu 12.04 with AMD proprietory driver
Hmm, it worked for me, but it was a while ago. Each version of the drivers may need a unique magic number, so you may need to search with the driver version number?

Have added an answer that hopefully covers everything. :)

Not sure why it would say 6800. The R7 250 is based on the Oland chipset and is just a rebrand of the 8670. See: techpowerup.com/gpudb/2459/radeon-r7-250.html. Sure it's not 8600?

comment Display Driver and Resolution Issues
Good to hear Globmont! Answer added -- I'll include how I install nvidia drivers if you like. The nVidia GPU should be listed somewhere in the output of lspci.

The xorg.conf file is still referencing the nvidia driver. Move it somewhere else (eg sudo mv /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.nvidia) and reboot, as I don't think you really necessarily need it these days.

comment what graphics drivers are now in use on this NVIDIA card?
Ah, okay, sounds like you've covered most options. How about a Live USB distro, see if that will at least run them?

But what about the drivers from the ubuntu repo for your current installation -- I thought "nvidia-current" would install something appropriate for your distro, rather than just the latest ones? (Could be wrong, was just an assumption).

I think that means nouveau is actually the driver in use, so the nvidia module may not be loaded (not sure what the nouveau module is called to see in lsmod). So, if you install the nvidia drivers (sudo apt-get install nvidia-current) and run sudo nvidia-xconfig, then reboot, the system crashes?

comment Cant config my pwm fans
Sometimes the info sensors can get depends on the support for specific manufacturer firmware/hardware. On an Asus F2A55-M LK motherboard, for example, I can't get any useful temps out of sensors. Sensors has a support database (lm-sensors.org/wiki/Devices) but I'm not sure what temp sensor type the Z87 Expert has...
