Laptop display remains blank while external display works

Still pretty new to linux so bear with me

Earlier today I had to install vmware workstation and after a reboot my laptop internal display is no longer working, but my external display is working fine. I think this has something to do with my laptop display only being able to use the integrated graphics. Laptop model is Aero15 OLEd-kd. I’m running manjaro-xfce and everything is up to date.

Did some more digging and found that the actual cause of the problem is the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file created from nvidia-xconfig

sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf
reboot
