Remove whatever it is you have done and follow these instructions:


Thank you for support

Which command line i have to write firstly on terminal.


nvidia-inst --drivers

To see what drivers are supported for your card.


I type this commande but i have this answer

I m not sure that i do correctly. Sorry for my english

Typo, should be: nvidia-inst --drivers

I have this message


See if you have nvida-inst installed. In a terminal

pacman -Q nvidia-inst

If it is installed, it will list it. If it says “error: package ‘nvidia-inst’ was not found” then

sudo pacman -S nvidia-inst

should install it.


hello thanks for your support

i installed 'nvidia-inst"

after i check for the correct drivers and i have now this information

[foxy1686@foxy1686 ~]$ nvidia-inst --drivers
NVIDIA card id: 1c03
Fetching driver data from nvidia.com

Series 525: supported (nvidia.com: 525.60.11)

[foxy1686@foxy1686 ~]$ nvidia-inst --series 525 -t

Info: kernel parameters for grub will be changed by nvidia-inst, so it is advisable to run commands:
grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
grub-install (with proper parameters for your system!)

    pacman -Syuq --noconfirm --noprogressbar --needed nvidia-dkms nvidia-utils nvidia-settings nvidia-hook

[foxy1686@foxy1686 ~]$

do i have just to type:
nvidia-inst --series 525
or this commands:
pacman -Syuq --noconfirm --noprogressbar --needed nvidia-dkms nvidia-utils nvidia-settings nvidia-hook


That’s all you need to do.

I will try. Thanks

When i reboot i have this information

the screen is frozen and nothing happens

When i reboot i have this information

grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
was used?

Well no.

Could you tell me when i have to do it, or how i have to proceed

Because i don’t see the feasability when i see my screen

possible that you can login to TTY (CLI) after pressing Ctrl+Alt+F3 from there you can run the commandline…

sudo grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg
And if you still can not load X you can use our script to revert to open source nouveau drivers too from the same login:
nvidia-inst -n


I installed nvidia on linux-zen kernel and i ask me if it’s a good way.
When i boot on lts kernel i don’t have issue during boot. Not the same on zen kernel.

so… on LTS you can reach the Desktop?
And you have nvidia-dkms installed?
pacman -Qs nvidia to check what is actually installed

On Lts i have these informations
