    NVIDIA GT 750M black screen


    I've been attempting to resolve this issue for days, with no success. I'm fairly new to linux. I don't know anything about reinstalling the kernel (Although it sounds easy from what I've read). The window manager I'm currently using is KDE. I installed the nvidia drivers with pacman -S nvidia, then tried using startx. The screen goes black and my GPU fan comes on at full speed, then the laptop reboots after a few seconds. I also tried installing the proprietary drivers from NVIDIA's website with the same results. I've tried using nvidia-xconfig and bumblebee. The Xorg.0 log file has the entry

    Code:
    Screens found, but none have a valid configuration
    or something similar to that.

    I would have posted this on the Arch Linux forum but the verification is seemingly impossible in my state.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Have you tried installing the proprietary nVidia driver directly? There is the /usr/bin/nvidia-xconfig tool which will set up your xorg.conf file properly, at least as it sees your hardware.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
