i have joined the forums because i haven't been able to solve the following problem for a few days now.
Please excuse my english as it's not my native language.
I'm using a Laptop with NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1060 | 6 GB GDDR5 which is a dual-Graphics-Card.
It's supposed to work with the NVIDIA Drivers (according to NVIDIA Website) and it worked well for ~ 1 Year with one downside: I couldn't use the intel-part of the Graphics-Card, so my battery didn't last long.
A few days ago I updated my NVIDIA Driver (and i haven't wrote down the old version :/) and after that my system froze on login-screen or shortly after loging in.
When i start with recovery mode i can start my system (and get a message, that i'm running on software-rendering mode).
I tried to install the newest Version (390.25) directly from the NVIDIA Homepage, now my system gets a black screen after grub loader and doesn't boot at all.
Recovery Mode still working.
I tried to select the different Versions of the driver but none lets me start my OS.
I'm using Mint 18.2 64bit with Cinnamon.
