black-flickering screen after installing nvidia-384 repository

Asked by Mathew on 2018-08-04

Hello, I have installed a ubuntu 16.04 on my new hard-drive. On the first boot up i entered the terminal, installed the ppa repository for nvidia, installed nvidia 384, then rebooted my desktop. When the hard drive boots i get a flickering black screen. I have tried accessing the terminal (ctrl+alt+(f1...f8)). This is the second hard drive i am attempting this on. Can somebody please help?

I suggest you remove the PPA and the driver it installed and reboot then use the one from the Ubuntu repository. Does that one work OK?

Can you help with this problem?
