    Is it a laptop? If not, what is the motherboard?

    Reinstalling is often the quickest route to ixing these issues. It's difficult to completely remove the detritus of a broken driver install before you move on to try something else.

    Yeah, and that's what i just did. Apparently my computer hates Nvidia drivers with linux then >~>
    Guess i'll start anew.
    Really do wish i could use a new nvidia driver, i do like gaming so it's sorta a must, but i guess i'll have to figure out a way arround it. Probably install windows for a dual boot, just for gaming purpous.
