Every time when I try to power off or reboot my laptop the screen freezes and I have to force power off, because the is the only option left.

From my experience I know that installing Nvidia card drivers should solve the problem, but I am unable to install drivers because the screen freezes during the installation at the moment when I need to shut down the X server either by typing init 3 or service gdm3 stop.

Does anyone know how to solve this issue?

  • I don't have a solution to your question as it is too wide. But for debugging (read: reinstalling the necessary drivers), single user mode should be helpful. – LotoLo Jul 17 '17 at 14:09
