Black sceen after install nvidia 390 driver on Ubuntu 18.04 Nvidia GT 630M


I’ve add the log from

I first tried to install .run file from nvidia website => black screen
Remove ever nvidia package => apt purge nvidia*

Then install from Additional software and ubuntu-drivers

It is the same result each time, I reboot, get a black screen. I’m able to switch to teminal with CTRL-ALT-F1 and I’m able to swtich between intel and nvidia driver with prime-select

Now I have either a black screen with nvidia driver or a GUI in low resolution and two screens detected with nouveau driver.

Need help to solve this problem

It’s an Optimus notebook, so you can’t use the .run installer.
Please follow this:

  • remove the .run installer driver using the --uninstall option
  • delete /etc/X11/xorg.conf
  • install the driver from repoo (sudo apt install --reinstall nvidia-driver-390)
  • make sure nvidia-prime is installed (sudo apt install nvidia-prime)
  • switch to nvidia (sudo prime-select nvidia)
  • remove stray blacklist files (sudo rm /lib/modprobe.d/blacklist-nvidia.conf /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist-nvidia.conf)
  • update the initrd (sudo update-initramfs -u)
  • reboot
    If this doesn’t resolve the issue, please create a new nvidia-bug-report.log.

Than you generix!
It works on nvidia driver now :)

I have another question related to my graphic card
I try to run vulkaninfo but I get:

N53SM:~$ vulkaninfo 
/build/vulkan-tools-136mCR/vulkan-tools- failed with ERROR_INITIALIZATION_FAILED
N53SM:~$ sudo vulkaninfo 
error: XDG_RUNTIME_DIR not set in the environment.
/build/vulkan-tools-136mCR/vulkan-tools- failed with ERROR_INITIALIZATION_FAILED

Is my graphic card compatible?
How to make vulkaninfo works on my laptop?
