I found an image. it looks like this image

:+1: Welcome to Manjaro! :+1:

Please read this:

and post some more information so we can see what's really going on. Now we know the symptom of the disease, but we need some more probing to know where the origin lies...


P.S. If you enter a bit more details in your profile, we can also see which Desktop Environment you're using, which CPU/GPU you have, ...

I add more informations, but i cant read anuthing from it. It,s blurred

Can you also give the output of:

mhwd --listinstalled

as you seem to have the nomodesetting and the nVidia driver and the Intel driver installed.

You're also on kernel 5.4 so in the meantime, can you try and install 4.19 LTS and 5.6 and see if that makes things better (Choose them one by one from your grub book screen in advanced options)

  • Log off

  • switch to TTY2 by typing Ctrl+Alt+F2

  • Log on

  • execute:

     sudo mhwd-kernel --install linux419
     sudo mhwd-kernel --install linux56
     sudo reboot
 Installed PCI configs:
                  NAME               VERSION          FREEDRIVER           TYPE
video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-440xx-prime            2019.10.25               false            PCI

Changing kernel doesn't help

Last-ditch effort: get rid of the hybrid driver and run on pure nVidia:

  • Log off

  • switch to TTY2 by typing Ctrl+Alt+F2

  • Log on

  • execute:

    sudo mhwd --remove pci video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-440xx-prime
    sudo mhwd --install pci video-nvidia-440xx
    sudo reboot

Disadvantage: Your power consumption will be a little bit higher / Battery life a bit worse...

With only nvidia driver system doesnt boot.

I reinstall system and without updates seems look ok. I think its a package which cause that problem

Try a different kernel than 5.4: IMHO 4.19 LTS (Long Time Support) and 5.6 (Latest stable) would be high on my list:

  • Log off

  • Go to TTY2 by pressing Ctrl+Alt+F2

  • Log on there

  • Execute:

    sudo mhwd-kernel --install linux419
    sudo mhwd-kernel --install linux56
    sudo reboot
  • and then choose them one by one from the grub menu (advanced options for Manjaro)

Doesn't help

All out of ideas then!


I downgraded de mesa 20.0.5-1 to mesa 19.3.4-2 and now work ok
