System does not recognize monitor installing Steam

After a recent update, I reinstalled EOS with XFCE. Boots and runs as it should until Steam is installed through Pacman. After doing so, my monitor is not recognized and my resolution is hard-locked at 1024x768. Additionally, booting using the LTS kernel will not progress past Starting Accounts Service, but it doesn’t freeze and will respond to Ctrl+Alt+Del from there. If possible, is there anything I can and should do, and what would you recommend I do in the future to avoid such problems?
Inxi: ( inxi -FAZ --no-host | eos-sendlog)
Journalctl: (journalctl -b -0)

My guess would be that Steam partially pulled some nvidia drivers in.

Can you hit ctrl+alt+f3 and get to a TTY?

I can. I’m a bit of a newbie, so, if I might ask, what would you like me to do after doing so?
Thank you for the speedy response, by the way.

Can you login and run pacman -Q | grep nvidia and share what that returns?

My results were this, I believe.
lib32-nvidia-utils 535.86.05-1
nvidia-utils 535.86.05-2

Yes, you appear to have only part of the drivers.

I would install nvidia-inst and use that to install the drivers properly.


I cannot thank you enough, and hope you have a wonderful day.
