can't install Xfce 18.2 on my Asus laptop

Postby Iprovidence » Sat Nov 18, 2017 8:06 pm

I keep getting stuck on splash screen during boot up and from all my looking around it's because of the NVidia issue but all the links that have been posted as responses all lead to videos that don't work. I am brand new to Linux and I can't connect the dots. I can get to Grub menu and press e to edit and I see the line that ends in splash screen. What do I do from there?

my specs
Nvidia Geforce GTX 950m
i7-6700hq 2.60GHz 2.59GHz
16 gig ram
two 500gb ssd one with windows 10

I would rather just take windows off completely, I don't want to dual boot, FYI
Any help woud be greatly appreciated, Thanks
