Black screen with cursor

I've searched the entire forum and read every topic regarding this issue but nothing seems to work. I'm trying to install the latest stable XFCE, and all I get is a black screen with flashing cursor.

I've tried nomodeset & nouveau.modeset=0 but that doesn't work.

Any ideas?

My PC specs.
CPU: 8 x Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6700K CPU
GFX: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070

Just a thought, What type of motherboard do you have run the following command to give more information on your system. See what ver your bios is, and then download and update your bios, this helps with so many issues when dealing with software.

command inxi -Fxzc0
