    I installed 367.44 on ubuntu 16.04 as instructed here and on restarting I’ve caught in a login loop. Any help would be much appreciated. I had the same problem with the 361 driver, after I managed to get out of the login loop, the grub crashed and I was left with having to reinstall ubuntu.

      When you’re at login screen, press Ctrl+Alt+F1 (or F2 to F6) to get into command console, type in user name and then password to login.

      After logged in, try remove this driver via command:

      sudo apt-get remove --purge nvidia*

      Then reboot:

      sudo reboot

      Or take a look at this topic for more information.

      For the grub issue, it depends on what you did. However without reinstalling Ubuntu, you can only reinstall the Grub bootloader and there are quite a few answers on web.

        Sam problem as Lisa. This tutorial leaves Kubuntu 16.04 in a vegetative state.

    Hi, I just installed the driver as you suggested, but after rebooting I get a black (or blank) screen. What is missing can you help?

    • merill0

      As I mentioned in the last comment, press Ctrl+Alt+F1 after booted into the blank screen, you’ll be able to type username and password to log-in the command console.

      When you’re in, remove the driver via:

      sudo apt-get remove --purge nvidia*

      Finally reboot via reboot command.

        Hi, thanks.
        But when I did that, it solved my blank screen problem. But I still saw that nvidia driver is not chosen in the “additional drivers” window, x-org server something is chosen. When I choose nvidia 367.44 and apply changes, then when I tried to reboot just before rebooting my screen got blank again and did not reboot, frozen. I shut down pc with power button, turned on again, and again a blank screen before getting into the desktop. again opened console and purge nvidia then rebooted, came back to the same starting point. I couldn’t break the loop 🙁
