Hi, I have a fresh installed Zorin OS 16.2 Core.
I have a NVidia 1060 and selected the 525 NVidia Driver.
So far so good. Everything worked fine since 2 weeks without any problems until...
I selected the 530 NVidia driver at the additional driver menu. After Installation and reboot this happened:
My screen resolution is only 1024x768 and I can't change it
sound card is gone
network is gone
can't type anything on my keyboard
NVidia xServer settings is blank
I can only use my mouse, so I selected the 525 driver, but I can't type the needed password with my keyboard. It's not working.
So I go to grub with shift pressed on boot and started the recovery mode. But then I stuck again, because the keyboard isn't working in the select screen.
Edit: Ok, I managed to copy and paste my password out of a text file. But now the 525 driver can't be installed, because the network is broken too.
What can I do? Can I repair it with a live usb stick?
I maybe can save with my mouse working all my stuff, but I don't want to use Zorin OS anymore, if it can break so easily and fast with an official and tested driver. So it would be nice to know, what happened. Or better, I can still fix it.
I tried to reinstall 525 at first, but it throw out an error, it wants a network connection.
And there must go so much wrong, because Ethernet and audio is missing too.
Strange that my USB keyboard doesn't work either.
A worst-case scenario!
