Mon Mar 12, 2018 11:41 am

Hello, I Install the driver (390) but after reboot I have a black screen with a flashing cursor.

Try CRT+ALT+F1 and login -> ok

Try sudo Start x -> fatal server error, no screen found !!

Can anyone help me ?

Have you installed the drivers matching your kernel ?

For sure you'll run into problems if you do that.
What is your GPU model ?
Which kernel are you running (type uname -r in a terminal)
