https://bbs.archlinux.org – I have an Asus G75VW laptop with Arch Linux Kernel-CK x64 and the official Nvidia (CK) driver installed. (Newest package versions as of yesterday, no testing repos.) When I run startx, the Nvidia logo flashes briefly, and then the screen turns black and the backlight turns off. I am unable to see anything on screen after this no matter what I do, though the system itself is not frozen, because pressing the power button at this point prompts Arch Linux into a graceful shutdown.The graphics card is an NVIDIA GeForce GTX 670M.What other information can I provide to resolve this?Edit: It's be (HowTos)
