I just upgraded my Ubuntu from 14.10 to 15.10 (wily), but Ubuntu just display a black screen and can't display the login screen. I suspect it's an Nvidia driver issue, so I switched to tty1, and found there are some errors in the /var/log/Xorg.0.log file.

I already have Nvidia driver PPA installed (both for wily and utopic), and I also tried to upgrade the Nvidia driver by these commands:

sudo apt-get update  
sudo apt-get install nvidia-340  

but it told me "nvidia-340 is already the newest version". It that the problem which cause black screen? And how should I do it? btw, my Nvidia graphicscard is Quadro K620. Below are some fragments of Xorg.0.log:

Probably nvidia-340 is not compatible with the new kernel.

Your card is supported by nvidia-352 driver. Install it by:

sudo apt-get install nvidia-352
