I am trying to install an NVIDIA GEFORCE 1050 TI card on my system, but with the card installed, I can't access a GUI. Here is my system info:
Intel® Core™ i7-3770S CPU @ 3.10GHz × 8
Intel® Ivybridge Desktop
Ubuntu 16.04.3 LTS 64-bit
I can get to BIOS and then to GRUB, but when I select to boot Ubuntu (I dual-boot, and the card works perfectly in Windows 10.), I only get a black screen. Trying to switch to the command line with CTRL+ALT+F1 does not work.
I found this mega-answer here about getting drivers to work, but I can't figure out how to attempt these steps without a GUI.
I took the graphics card out and am in the system via the onboard Intel graphics at the moment. Is there anything that is recommended to install/uninstall in my system that would allow me to insert the card again and boot back to a sufficient GUI to attempt installing drivers?
