Black screen after installing nvidia drivers

Postby nox_sol » Fri Oct 14, 2016 2:11 pm

Hello, I switched to mint 18 KDE with a fresh install and everything works fine, but whenever I try to install + activate nvidia proprietary drivers (no matter what version) i get a black screen and the only interaction i get is changing screen brightness. I have to go CTRL+ALT+F1 to remove the drivers and reboot with nuveau.
I have an NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 950M video card -with optimus- which was working fine in previous versions of linux mint

I have the same problem from time to time. Until now it was only occasionally, but i am stuck now too. How to fix this?
