I have recently upgraded my workstation from Ubuntu 14.04 to 16.04. After the upgrade, my computer is booting to black screen. The problem seem to be due to NVIDIA graphics card and its broken driver for ubuntu 16.04. I tried to follow instructions on Ubuntu 16.04 + Nvidia Driver = Blank screen, but I am not able to get to terminal window even after pressing Ctrl+Alt+F1/2 keys. Without getting to terminal I am not sure how can I update grub settings.
I am wondering if I can fix this problem somehow changing grub settings or do I really need to change to a non-NVIDIA graphics card ? Any help is highly appreciated. Following are my system details:
- Asus motherboard P8P67
- NVIDIA GeForce 1GB graphics card (specific model name I will update later)
- Wireless keyboard (not sure if this is important detail or not)
