This is the error message i get on boot. I understand something went while trying to install some programs with conflicting dependencies but this is all i know for sure…
I have booted into my system with a Manjaro live USB and i understand that i need to fix something in the booting sequence, i have read topics from the forum and wiki about grub restore etc but i got lost in “chroot” paragraphs
i believe i need some guidance here…
this is the output from lsblk:
[manjaro@manjaro ~]$ lsblk

@vbakalis Well if it is nvidia, then i guess your gpu is not supported by version 390xx or 455xx, all other driver version have been removed due support end. There are a lot of problems with that and solutions on the forum. A grub reinstall will not help then.
I ve read the articles on the forum and i understand some of the situations you mentioned above. The thing i don’t get is if i have to uninstall something from my computer in order to make the boot sequence work again
Just to make sure i am not going to blow things up, as i am quite new using Linux…
I dont understand your last line
I am currently running on live iso and i am trying to fix my system so:
manjaro-chroot -a ( in order to change the apparent root directory )
How do i remove the nvidia drivers? because on lspci -v i see that already nouveau drivers are in use

I am sorry to ask so many questions but i am really trying to understand the root cause of this situation.
Please if possible some step by step guidance to resolve this
What drivers should i install for graphics?
Did you run mhwd -li on your live-boot or after you manjaro-chrooted into your actual system? It looks to me like it was run from the live-boot, which doesn’t help.
I think both these are bad ideas, I learned that you can achieve the same, but in a cleaner way, with mhwd -r pci <driver-name> as was pointed out here to me.
In that situation I had to install those drivers again using mhwd -a pci <driver-name> and then delete them properly with the above command. mhwd -l gives you a list of compatible possible drivers I believe. mhwd -li -d gives detail information about currently installed ones. All of this and more is also explained in the link @megavolt provided above.
Is that enough to manjaro-chroot into your broken installation, or do you have any problems doing so? Can’t you also just boot normally and once you see the [FAILED] Failed to start Load Kernel Modules open the tty (Ctrl+Alt+F3) and do the changes from there?
