NVIDIA GT30 Ubuntu 17.10 installed unable to boot keeps freezing

Few days ago I installed NVIDIA GT30 in my local station for how many times and it was successful installation.

but once system is rebooted.. Then the problem occur, I was stuck in the encrypt login screen, I do have files encryption… Cause I encrypted my home folder and put password in it, before you can proceed to the user desktop login screen you need to enter password for security purposes

Image result

Once rebooted there’s no mouse or even keyboard activity so you can enter password to login.. Its like the system totally freeze

You cant click or even ctrl + alt + delete etc.. completely nothing

for how many hours debugging the issue and searching in the web.

I was reading it and it came up in my mind that maybe the visual login screen is the issue for some reason keep the system freeze.. I’m just guessing it.

then force to reboot the computer by pressing the CPU power button long press then switch to recovery mode.

then Switch to tty1 by ctl-alt-f1 and login

then I updated the grub file

see below

xx@xxxx:~$ nano /etc/default/grub
From: GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quiet nosplash noplymouth"

quiet means you’re not be able to see any visual login screen and just a command line screen to login.. nothing special.


then guess what after rebooting the system, I’t went well and I can now login using command line screen login.
