did you try /etc/init.d/gdm3 stop before you install nvidia? try that if you didn't then after that reboot

i downloaded the .run file from the official site then fixed the headers >>> # apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r`
then /etc/init.d/gdm3 stop
sh nvidia-driver.run
then nvidia-xconfig
then reboot and stuck in the blanking screen thing :(
any solutions to the blank screen problem !!?

lol it is brightness issues I think, like mine.

you need to modify a file called "brightness" at /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/
read my post it might help you check this
