So, I know the “I installed nvidia drivers and then the computer randomly freezes” is a somewhat common problem that can be solved by uninstalling the drivers. However, how can I do this if even TTY freezes?
I boot, get to the point where I’m close to logging in, but the computer freezes. Next boot, I open TTY to undo my changes, but the computer freezes very quickly, before I even run a single line of code after logging in via TTY.
Is there a way to undo my changes, remove NVidia drivers or something like this if I can’t even run a single line without the computer freezing and crashing after a while?
Also, is this a problem with NVidia not being able to run without breaking my computer? I did have problems with getting it to run when I played games, the computer only used the Intel GPU like 100% of the time, which is why I got Optimus. Can’t NVidia like, just, run?
