    @superclyde @joekamprad
    Well. Thank you, guys. I appreciate the advice but I reinstall and restore the whole system…
    I got another question how to properly install the Nvidia drivers on machines with dual graphics cards, like my laptop?

    00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 4th Gen Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 06)
            Subsystem: Dell Device 0688
            Kernel driver in use: i915
    --
    01:00.0 3D controller: NVIDIA Corporation GM204M [GeForce GTX 980M] (rev a1)
            Subsystem: Dell Device 0688
            Kernel modules: nouveau
    

    I have gone through this one Nvidia settings, but someone just told me nvidia-xconfig does not fit the dual graphic drivers.

  • bumblebee maybe?

    And we have the nvidia-installer doing all this automatic:

    $ sudo pacman -S nvidia-installer
    
    nvidia-installer -b -t
    

    To test the installation (-t)
    real installation:

    $ sudo nvidia-installer -b

    Tried that.
    But I got the following info. VGA still uses Integrated Graphics. Seems like the driver is not properly configured…

    VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 4th Gen Core Processor Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 06)
            Subsystem: Dell Device 0688
            Kernel driver in use: i915
    3D controller: NVIDIA Corporation GM204M [GeForce GTX 980M] (rev ff) (prog-if ff)
            !!! Unknown header type 7f
            Kernel modules: nouveau, nvidia_drm, nvidia
    
  • looks like nouveau is not blacklisted…
    nvidia-installer -b -t > gives no errors?

  • What i think was that nvidia is choosen by default and you can switch manually to discrete, or by a service…

    systemctl status bumblebeed.service
    
    pacman -Qs xf86-video-nouveau
    cat /etc/default/grub | grep blacklist
    cat /etc/mkinitcpio.conf | grep MODULES= 
    

    Output will give us info if nouveau is still present in configuration.
