• Blank screen after fresh install


    I just installed XFCE Antergos (dual boot with Windows) on my laptop (i7-4700MQ, Nvidia GT 755M) but got a blank screen after grub boot screen. It wont do anything so I just pressed CTRL+ALT+F2, logged in from the terminal and rebooted back to Windows. I suspect the Nvidia driver don’t play nice with Optimus. I’m quite certain that its the installation fault because my previous Manjaro installation worked fine. Any assistance will be much appreciated.

  • Apparently I need to install Antergos without the Nvidia proprietary driver first, then install it afterwards. I believe this applies to Optimus laptops only. Problem solved.

  • Hi!

    Sorry I wasn’t able to help you earlier, I just saw this thread:slight_smile:.

    Anyways, if this is causing your problems, @joekamprad has a special Antergos ISO made with Nvidia drivers in mind. You can find and download it here.

    Hope this helps!


    Keep trying, never give up. In the end, you will find that it was all worth it
