I recently switched to Ubuntu from Windows after a Windows 10 Update broke my computer and the repair tools/fresh install repeatedly failed.
I installed 18.4.02 and things were going great until I tried to fix my brightness keys. I used this fix: Brightness problem Ubuntu 18.04 LTS
This caused a Nvidia Persistence Daemon issue to repeatedly stop and start.
I booted into Safe Mode and purged the Nvidia drivers, hoping that would fix things.
But now I'm stuck in a login loop and can't seem to get into my account. The username and pass are correct and I can use them to access the terminal. I re-installed the nvidia drivers, but this time as nvidia-390 (since I read that that's apparently a more stable version of the drivers, but then I get the Nvidia Persistence Daemon issue again.
My computer is an ASUS G75VW with the Nvidia GTX 660M graphics card. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm thinking since this I wouldn't be losing any files, it might be better to just re-install ubuntu. But I'd like to prevent a graphics card issue from messing me up again.
