  • @InvisibleRasta please do

    $ sudo pacman -S lshw
    

    then

    $ sudo lshw -class display
    

    and share the output with us.

  • $ sudo lshw -class display
    PCI (sysfs)
    this is the output… seems like the command hangs. pressing ctrl c doesnt stop the command
    EDIT:
    did a new install

     $ sudo lshw -class display

  • ok, you don’t have the gtx680m you have the GeForce GTX 960M.

    See if you have a file /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-nvidia-drm-outputclass.conf id you do delete it and see if you Xserver works by doing $ startx You may have to reinstall your NVidia drivers please use nvidia-installer $ sudo pacman -Syu and $ sudo pacman -S nvidia-installer then do

    $ sudo nvidia-installer --bumblebee

    I had to uninstall nvidia and bumblebee to be able to boot in x.

  • anyone able to help me?

  • bump… still searching for a solution. thanck you

  • to check graphic-hardware:

    lspci | grep -E "VGA|3D"
    

    As the nvidia-installer is made for bumblebee try to install bumblebee with it:

    sudo pacman -Syu  
    sudo pacman -S nvidia-installer
    nvidia-installer --bumblebee -t
    

    -t for testing, if all looks good (no error reporting) then do install with:

    sudo nvidia-installer --bumblebee
    

    reboot system

    If you are unshure post the output of:

    nvidia-installer --bumblebee -t
