What is the nvidia card?
When is the screen turning black?
If you edit the grub/boot to also add '3' so you boot to runlevel 3, do
you get a prompt?
I'm asking because I've had to add:
quiet vga=794 selinux=0 iommu=soft acpi_osi=Linux
The iommu=soft is to get the nvidia/nouveau to work
The acpi_osi=Linux is to get the FN-F8 to switch screens correctly.
