Problems when choosing Nvidia option on install

Tried running inxi -G and it gave me the following:

Device-1: Intel driver: N/A
Device-2: NVIDIA driver: nvidia v: 535.54.03
Display: x11 server: X.Org 1.20.13 driver: fbdev,nouveau
unloaded: modesetting,vesa resolution: 1920x1080~77Hz
OpenGL: renderer: llvmpipe (LLVM 12.0.0 256 bits) v: 4.5 Mesa 21.2.6

And just to clarify, I'm still using GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet splash nomodeset" as I assume that removing nomodeset would make the black screen return.

I ended up using this tutorial for purging everything Nvidia and reinstalled the nvidia-driver-535. Got a black screen while installing but after reboot it seems to work without any issues. I can now open the Nvidia settings and I see a lot more things in the settings plus it says "Nvidia Corporation" under Settings > About.

Thank you for all the help!

My pleasure. Note that every time you get a kernel update you need to re-install/build the driver when chose to manually install the nvidia driver by the guide you posted.
