Hello Unix & Linux Community

I have installed a fresh copy of Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon amd64 on my Computer yesterday.

I have an Asus Nvidia GTX 960 and an Intel Core i7 4770.

Before I installed Linux Mint 18.3 Cinnamon, I had LM 18.2 XFCE. In LM 18.2, I used the properitary Nvidia driver for my graficscard. After I upgraded to LM 18.3, my second (main) monitor went black, with the properitary driver. As I changed it to nouveau, my 2nd screen got reactivated. It sais aswell that Cinnamon crashed.

I have already tried, to install the latest kernel on LM available (Version 4.15.0-23)

I tried aswell,to change my input cable. Currently I have an HDMI to DVI and replaced it to full HDMI. Well, I didn't work aswell.

I don't know what I'm doing wrong, is it LM 18.3, the Nvidia Driver or just my graphicscard?

I appreciate every help I can get.
