I am trying to install 18.04 on an ASUS GL552VW, but I am experiencing one after another problem, and after spending the entire day of testing I am fed up with Ubuntu.
I'm hoping for a miracle to salvage this wreck before I reinstall Windows 10 and sell it. It is ridiculous that this configuration is having issues since it got released back in '15. I came from 16.04 (LM18.3) and it ran badly because the only working parameters were and are
noacpi acpi=off and
The device is a GTX960M i7-6700HQ with integrated HD graphics 530.
For my latest attempt I followed this guide: Installing Ubuntu in latest Asus Rog PCs
After completion it is impossible to reboot successfully. Every time the screen goes black after a reboot. After I shutdown and then boot, the system boots with a display but the keyboard backlight and touchpad are both not working.
After trying parameters like these:
nomodeset nv nvidia.modeset=0 i915.modeset=0 nouveau.modeset=0 acpi=off noacpi noapic nosplash idle=nomwait rdblacklist=nouveau nouveau.runmp=0
I enabled the proposed package for beta support, but still had no luck.
All of these parameters gave different outputs and addressed new issues, and some did not even let me pass grub without failing.
I have tried nvidia-361 -340 -384 and -390, and although I tried the various versions all came with 390 dependencies installed.
I am at this point completely lost because I can't think of any option worth trying.
