I am having an interesting issue. I upgraded my graphics cards and now the NVidia driver does not recognize it. As a result, when I attempt to boot into Ubuntu, I get spammed with an error stating that the driver has not recognized my card and then I get a black screen.
I have tried the follow:
- set nvidia.modeset=0 in GRUB options
- use nomodeset (following instructions here: Ubuntu 16.04 + Nvidia Driver = Blank screen)
- Boot into recovery mode and try "failsafe" graphics. This led to my BIOS screaming a loud beeping at me.
- Use the root command prompt from recovery mode. This doesn't work since when I mount the drive (so I have write access so I can modify files) it loads the driver and I get spammed with the error.
Any ideas? At this point I am about to call it quits and just re-install 16.04 from scratch.
