I want to use ubuntu 16.04 on my laptop so I use a bootable USB to install the system.
Now I want to install NVIDIA driver... another story, skip it. Anyway I need to use tty to install the driver as I need to shut down X server.
But when I use
ctrl+alt+F1~6 to enter the tty, nothing happens. The situation is, first I login to my user, stay on the desktop. I press
ctrl+alt+f1, then my mouse disappear, and the GUI directly got frozen (I test it by playing a youtube video and press the keys).
It looks like I stucked at somethere because if I press
ctrl+alt+f7 the GUI goes back to working. The same thing happens if I tried to enter tty at the login page without logging into my account.
Can anyone help? I can update any information about the system if you need. Thank you.
Now I finished step 2 and stucked before enter step 3. After selecting the recovery mode, I only have 'loading linux 4.13.0-36 generic' and 'loading initial ramdisk' these two lines appear, no menu like it is supposed to be in step 3
