Try blacklisting nouveau in /etc/modprobe.d/nouveau-blacklist (create this file with sudo rights) 
And type in

blacklist nouveau

After that rebuild initrd with
sudo update-initramfs -u 
and reboot

That should make it work again

I installed the packages:

nvidia-graphics-drivers, nvidia-settings, and libva1, from X Updates
PPA (because stock NVIDIA drivers are too old).

They work OK, however TTYs appear black, when I switch to them with
Ctrl-Alt-F1, F2, etc.

Does anyone know how to fix this?

Thank you,
