I'm a GNU/Linux user and love it, but I have been struggling to correctly install this system on my computer (laptop), all due to the graphic graphics card. Here are the specs of the computer:
Intel Core i7-7700HQ (CPU) Intel HD Graphics 630 (Integrated) NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 (Dedicated) Computer: MSI GL72M 7RDX (just in case you want to know)
I've tried several things to make it work and I'll mention them:
First I tried to install Arch and tried to configure xorg (with nouveau and intel and also with nvidia and intel). Whenever I tried to start it, it shuted down.
Then I moved to elementaryOS. In this distro, I couldn't even get to the live USB because it stopped during splash screen. After that, I realized that I had to erase
splash from kernel parameters and I had to add the
nomodeset parameter. All went well, until I tried to install
nvidia proprietary drivers (and blacklist
nouveau), because it was draining my battery in less than a hour. When I did that, the screen became black and I couldn't even access another tty. I had to install it back (because I tried to uninstall the driver, but nothing happened after that). Then I tried to install
bumblebee in order to use when to use NVIDIA and when to use Intel. The same happened, but when I uninstalled it, everything was just fine. But then, I removed
wingpanel to switch to another version of it, but now, the screen is still black, yet I can access another tty. I tried to install it back, but it is still the same.
Before you tag this as duplicate, I have one thing to say. I tried a lot of things used on many situtations similar to mine and NOTHING worked. So, What can I do to have my distro back?
P.S: Also, when I was on Arch, when I ran
xrandr or related commands, the output was always like
Cannot find screen.
P.S 2: System is in dual-boot with Windows, on separate disks.
