I got this loop black screen problem with nvidia driver after fresh install. the only solution that worked for me after be stuck in a loop is to reinstall Ubuntu +Nvidia driver as follow:

  1. Install Ubuntu
  2. Install the nvidia driver (don't restart)
  3. Open Terminal : sudo dpkg-reconfigure nvidia-367
  4. Restart.

1/ You do not state which Nvidia card you have. Not all drivers work with all cards. A mismatch can give many problems.

2/ You are best advised to perform another fresh install from a DVD, and allow Ubuntu to detect and install the generic driver for your card.

3/ Determine your exact card and use Synaptic to find and install the correct drivers. Then use Synaptic menu "settings/repositories/additional drivers" to choose the correct driver.
