I’ll try to explain EVERYTHING as much as I can. A friend told me that I’ll have to install the NVIDIA packages for my graphics card to work on Linux. So I did that. After seeing that the installation was complete, I rebooted my system. Since I have it on default for the GRUB to boot me in Windows automatically after 20 seconds, It booted me on windows. Once I realised that, I rebooted my system again and tried to boot into Linux, but to my surprise, my screen went black. My friend told me to open the terminal by pressing CTRL+ALT+F2. Then he told me to uninstall all of the NVIDIA Packages I had installed because they wouldn’t let me boot into Linux. As to why that happened, well I’m not sure. He told me it might’ve been because I accidentally booted Windows after installing and told me to uninstall EVERY NVIDIA package I had installed. It took me a while to find the names of the packages.
Installed NVIDIA Packages
linux57-nvidia-450xx 450 66-4
Here are the packages. So, since I had them all in front of me, I started uninstalling. I uninstalled the top two packages however, I couldn’t do the same with the ones named MHWD. I didnt try uninstalling the last package so I just turned my system off as I couldn;t find a way to solve this. Then my friend told me to go on the arch linux wiki on to nouveau and to follow the instructions on “Keep NVIDIA Driver Installed”. Apparently it wanted me to blacklist nouveau inside a file, however there was nothing written in the files mentioned in the website. After that I really gave up on trying to fix it myself and came on here hoping to get an answer
EDIT: Forgot to mention that after uninstalling the top two packages mentioned in the list and rebooting, this is the error it showed me: Failed to start simple desktop display manager
