This answer is merely for driver issues with 16.04 and n VIDIA. I installed Ubuntu 16.04 and everything worked fine until I switched to NVIDIA driver.
After rebooting I couldn't get past the login screen.
With Windows 10 due to launch on Wednesday, the concerns expressed on the forum could well be echoed in other communities if Microsoft and hardware companies don’t take steps to address the issues.
The problems the automatic update causes are quite varied.
When it comes to drivers for Nvidia graphics cards, most computer users probably either use the drivers that are included with their operating system, or install a driver package for the card from Nvidia. It includes the driver that is required, and then other components that may or may not be required depending on how the computer is used.
The Nvidia Graphics Driver will install 3D Vision components, an HD audio driver, Phys X System Software, or Ge Force Experience for instance when you don't select custom installation to turn these off.
The driver version used below may not be the latest. If you run into problems afterward, you should ask a different question.
(Refer to this question so that we know it isn't a duplicate.) However, there are a few other small fixes you can try out before you do. Even if you are experiencing something listed in the question, the solution may not fully work for you.
They will often fix rare bugs – and maybe even introduce new bugs.
please have a look at askubuntu.com/a/760469 it seems the nvidia drivers are not yet compatible with the latest kernel version.
You can also try the steps mentioned here askubuntu.com/a/761326, if you still want to install the nvidia drivers though... With nvidia drivers I always fallback on downloading and installing drivers from nvidia, following instructions in the runnable.
We have previously advised you to not compulsively update your drivers – most hardware drivers that come with your computer or through Windows Update are fine.
However, graphics drivers for your NVIDIA, AMD, or even Intel graphics hardware are a big exception.
I have an ASUS K501LX-NB52 with Intel HD Graphics 5500 and also a GTX 950M.
