Linux doesnt boot gtx 570

Hello,

My screen goes black after I press mint. I can get in if I use nomodeset. I've got an Asus 570 gtx graphics card.
Please help

  1. What distro are you using?

    I had similar trouble with an nVidia graphics card and my TV tuner, apparently they didn't like each-other. The solution was to increase vmalloc.

    edit: I just realized that the guy in that thread didn't have success editing it, but I think what he was doing was accurate.
  2. boot using nomodeset, then download and install latest driver from nvidia. ubuntu/mint has that fancy 'additional drivers' software to automate the process. then run
    sudo nvidia-xconfig
    .reboot.
  3. Or, if you want to use the nouveau driver for whatever reason just add video=1920x1080@60 to the kernel line in your bootloader, of course adjusted to your needs (this one will obviously give you a resolution of 1920x1080 at 60 Hz).
