I've recently upgraded from ubuntu 15.10 to 16.04. Here him my laptop details:
- Acer Inspire V nitro 17
- Nvidia GeForce 860M
- RAM 6Gb
As I was using nvidia driver on 15.10, after the upgrade I couldn't log in again :making a loop back to the login screen I've find an alternative by using :
sudo apt-get purge nvidia*
I was then able to log in but I didn't have all my features working (like live wallpaper photoslide or screenlets) However I've been looking for solutions and one of them was to:
- reinstall nvidia driver through command lines with
sudo apt-get install nvidia-361
(361 is my version)
- Disable the secure boot
After that I have now a black screen at logging but I can still hear the sound.
Any help? Thanks.
