short story: Where can I find which video card driver to use?
new Ubuntu 16.04 LTS installation freezes when I press ¨restart now¨ at the end of the installation. After reboot: kept sending me back to the screen where my password was asked whenever I entered my password (correctly). I tried all kings of ¨fixes¨ run from recovery mode: none of which worked. -> Reinstalled Ubuntu (again erased whole disk etc). Again restart now / booting and shutdown freezes (but loggin went fine?! using same USB stick) So I changed grub line to:
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset".
I updated the whole system and changed the Graphic driver to the newest nvidia, everything seemed to be fine! Next day I try to boot: after the Bios boot the Ubuntu boot only showed a black screen with in the left top corner a: ¨-¨. So installed Ubuntu again.. same Grub fix, But because the only things I changed yesterday was the video driver I think that is where my problem lies and hence: Where can I find which driver is best for my:
- hp g3 zbook
- Quadro M1000M Nvidia card
- I7 6400 Quadro
Ubuntu even froze when I tried to type this message, 16.04 LTS looks very unstable to me, anyone else having similar problems? Any clue on maybe a hidden problem in my kernels? Thanks in advance for all the help
Kind regards Steven
