Blank screen fix for Ubuntu (Nvidia)

Some of these may work:

Remove everything to do with the Nvidia proprietary drivers.

sudo nvidia-settings --uninstall

sudo apt-get remove –purge nvidia*


Start from scratch.

sudo apt-get remove --purge xserver-xorg-video-nouveau

Reinstall all the things!

sudo apt-get install nvidia-common

sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-nouveau


Reconfigure the X server.

sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
