Nvidia driver - infinite crash loop desktop

Post by cosmin1981 » Sun Jun 03, 2018 12:37 pm

hi all!

i have an i5 laptop, with nvidia 920M and dual boot w10 and linux mint 18.3 x64.

until today, everything worked smooth and perfectly. i have all updates to day with no issues

today, i wanted to switch from the integrated intel to nvidia driver, so i went to the Control Center --> Administration --> Driver Manager and selected nvidia from panel.

i ve attached a screenshot.

then rebooted, as asked.

and thats where the problems started!
the infinited desktop crash, which i couldnt resolve in any way!

someone suggested i follow these steps in this https://noteoneverything.blogspot.com/2 ... river.html

which i did, to the letter, but the desktop crash loop still remains!

what do i do now? How do i get nvidia to work and stop crashing ?
