Ok so i got the NVIDIA driver and put it under /desktop and i use the command sudo sh (Nvidia driver dir) and press enter and it says x server is running. i did some googleing and saw u should stop it by pressing ctrl+alt+backspace. This led me to the real problem. when i press that my screen goes blank and loses signal. So i am looking for 2 posible fixes. wather my ctrl+alt+backspace problem or atleast a way to stop x-server in terminal or any other way.
