I have just built my first custom PC with a GeForce GTX 750 Ti Graphics card. I've installed Ubuntu GNOME 14.10 and get a set resolution of 800x600 stretched across a 1080p screen. I've downloaded the official NVIDIA drivers.
When I run the file, it says it must be run without Xorg running. I've have tried pressing Ctrl+Alt+F1 to enter a command line system but instead of displaying a command line login, the screen goes completely blank. I cannot see what I am doing since there is no screen output whatsoever.
