I am really hoping someone might be able to help me with a problem I’m facing. I have finally made the move away from Windows 10 over to KDE Plasma - Manjaro Linux though I’ve hit a brick wall. When I first got it to boot up (problematic BIOS settings) I was ecstatic to be on new OS that wasn’t windows.
Unfortunately I am having severe problems trying to get my graphics driver to work. (Specs listed below) I have tried to install the driver via the System Settings, via the terminal (various methods found online) and even spent several hours manually installing the driver with PRIME.
Each time I complete the installation and reboot, the system is bricked. I have no access to TTY and have to re-install the OS via usb with a burned image from the official website. I am at an utter and complete loss as to what to do next. I refuse to go back to Windows and don’t want to use Ubuntu (based on research).
Any and all help is EXTREMELY appreciated.
