    Question Kali 2017.1 freeze after login

    Hello users,
    I have downloaded Kali linux 2017.1 64bit iso,made USB with win32DiskImager, booted into USB, selected graphical install.
    Exactly as many users in this forum i think have done.
    The problem is that after i put in the root and pass it freezes at the grey login image, only the cursor showing and not moving.
    Tried a lot , even purging the nvidia*->nvidia*.


    Kali Version - Kali 2017.1 25th April, 2017 The first 2017 Kali Rolling release. Kernel 4.9, Gnome 3.22. - latest, yesterday downloaded.
    Kali Architecture - 64 bit pc version
    Specific hardware models you are having trouble with (if relevant) - ASUS i7 6700hq, Nvidia 950, 8gb, ssd, has win10 installed( wanting to run dual boot )
    Any visible error messages you are getting - just as it is described above.
    Any additional relevant logs and information as described in the Kali Troubleshooting documentation - I haven;t found in description a error similar to this, and the other people responses to a far similar problem to this haven;t work on me, so it is a new error to my knowalge and source of information. Reffering to logs, ASK for them an i will provide. I don;t know yet how to understand them and provice a solution on my own since i haven't learned so much OS material. This means i am counting on your knowlage to help solving this problem. Thanks in advance fot the time spent and kind soul !!!


    So i hope you could offer a solution for me !
    Thank you in advance!

    First off, did you verify the hash of the download, to ensure it's valid. When you made a bootable USB, did you try to run Kali in live mode on this machine?

    This is a problem with your graphic drivers. You can disable Nvidia graphic card from BIOS. Then it'll switch to intel HD graphics. Follow this guide to install nvidia graphic drivers: https://forums.kali.org/showthread.p...Optimus-laptop

    First of all,
    This Asus does not have the option to disable pcie graphics card.
    Secondly, after I worte lspci | grep -E "VGA|3D" in tty3 didn't find any graphics card.
