When I boot, everything shows up on my laptop screen until the desktop environment starts to load, after that I am left with the

starting version 235
AntergosRoot: clean, 623842/30138368 files, 17962021/120534016 blocks

text on my laptop screen, but everything works fine on my external monitor. If I press Ctrl-Alt-F2 I can get a shell on my laptop screen, but my external monitor goes black and I cannot get it back without rebooting. I suspect it is something to do with the graphics card, since that was what I was trying to do when it broke. (I think it was the nvidia-installer antergos package that broke it.) If I boot with the external monitor disconnected, the laptop display still doesn't work. Here is my system configuration:

OS: Antergos Linux x86_64
Host: Latitude E6430 01
Kernal: 4.14.3-1-ARCH
Resolution: 1280x1024
DE: KDE
WM: KWin
CPU: Intel i7-3740QM (8) @ 3.700GHz
GPU: Intel Integrated Graphics
GPU: NVIDIA NVS 5200M
Memory: 5842MiB

What I was originally trying to do when it broke was navigate the minefield of hybrid graphics, eventually deciding to remove nvidia, nouveau and bumblebee in favour of the nvidia-installer package, along with antergos-prime.

Delete all of the nvidia drivers, reinstall, then delete xorg.conf.d.
