Tried drivers 352.63 and 352.55

After reboot I can't use browser, terminal etc. Just loading and that's all. My card is GeForce GT 540M

Kernel 4.2.6-300. Downgrade to Xorg 1.17 also didn't help.

Could you have a look at the journal and paste any specific error message on the session that could help ?

$ sudo journalctl
