Black screen on boot with nvidia

After I installed manjaro today and reboot it displays a black screen and switch ttys doesn’t fix the problem.
I booted to chroot and use journalctl -p 3 -b -1 ,the command outputs

Manjaro systemd-modules-load[226]: Failed to find module 'nvidia'
Manjaro systemd-modules-load[226]: Failed to find module 'nvidia-drm'
Manjaro systemd-modules-load[226]: Failed to find module 'nvidia-uvm'
Manjaro systemd[1]: Failed to start Light Display Manager.

I use proprietary drivers from nvidia

Welcome here, @RandomPerson :wave:
please, boot live ISO again, open a terminal window, enter

inxi -Fza
sudo fdisk -l

and post the output here. Tell us also if you boot in UEFI or BIOS mode.

I deleted the live iso so I try to output it to a file and copying that file from my phone
that’s the output of the first command

You need to switch to a supported kernel:
https://wiki.manjaro.org/index.php/Manjaro_Kernels

How do I know if the kernel is supported or not ?
What versions are compatible with the driver ?

The driver is not installed because there is no matching kernel module for 5.13. I would install either 5.15 or 5.10, then reboot and uninstall 5.13. Then you can install the NVIDIA driver.

Check https://www.kernel.org/ for kernels/versions which are still supported by upstream.
Also #announcements:stable-updates will mention kernel versions going EOL (end of life).

You can also look at the output of

$ mhwd-kernel -l

to list available kernels. A recently EOL-ed kernel will be listed for a while though untill it’s entirely dropped from the repos.

I reinstalled manjaro with kernel 5.10.84 but nothing changes
It works with the open source drivers but is there any way to get it work with the proprietary ones ?

I fix it by installing the 5.10 kernel using the open source drivers and then installing the proprietary drivers using mhwd
