I have installed Ubuntu 15.10 on an MSI GE72 6QD and could not install a working video driver (except the xserver-xorg-video-nouveau with serious limitations).
When I start normally, the machine freezes as the video initialization breaks the keyboard and mouse on a hardware conflict.
If I start in recovery mode, as the startup procedure is in text mode, the machine starts properly, but the video driver does not support a second monitor, which is a deal breaker for my job.
How can I make the machine boot directly in recovery mode. (btw. all boot settings are ignored as recovery mode has its own configuration ¿does that make sense?)
How/when/where can I find a driver for the nvidia GTX 960M
(What I have already done:)
sudo ubuntu-drivers devices == /sys/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:01.0/0000:01:00.0 == vendor : NVIDIA Corporation model : GM107M [GeForce GTX 960M] modalias : pci:v000010DEd0000139Bsv00001462sd0000115Bbc03sc02i00 driver : nvidia-352-updates - distro non-free driver : nvidia-352 - distro non-free recommended driver : xserver-xorg-video-nouveau - distro free builtin
== cpu-microcode.py == driver : intel-microcode - distro non-free
I have installed both nvidia-352 and nvidia-352-updates and neither works forcing me to recover the original driver with a root shell and recovery mode as both blocked my machine.
