Manjaro KDE doesn't boot after installing drivers

I recently installed Manjaro KDE alongside Windows 10, and I really love this distro. Recently when I was browsing the system settings , I downloaded and installed drivers for network adapters and display drivers. When I rebooted to manjaro , I get stuck in the usual black screen with a couple of lines. I am quite a newbie , and I literally don’t know what to do right now .

I managed to boot using my live manjaro USB to get info of my pc:

Thanks in advance


Did you used MHWD or you downloaded from elsewhere ?

From your inxi it seems

You do not need vesa driver, remove it with:
sudo mhwd -r video-vesa


well, I got it by right clicking drivers in system settings menu > hardware config

tried this command, but I get this error

[manjaro /]# sudo mhwd -r video-vesa
Error: invalid use of option: -r/--remove

I forgot to mention, I really appreciate you helping me :blush:

Sorry, my bad. Had missed another important part as it has to be:
sudo mhwd -r pci video-vesa


Omg, It really works well.
For one minute , i thought that I was done for.
Thankyou So much
