Isn't that an Optimus laptop with switchable GPUs that you should use with Bumblebee? (see Debian wiki and use the bumblebee-nividia method.) Currently I think you have to use "optirun" in front of commands to switch to the Nvidia GPU instead of "primusrun".

If you don't provide any more information about this "same thing" or exactly what you did to break your GUI in the first place, nobody can help you.

Was your laptop working before?
Do you have firmware-misc-nonfree installed for the Intel hardware?
Is the integrated Intel GPU enabled or disabled in the "BIOS"?

When you install bumblebee-nvidia in the terminal, please copy and paste the output of the commands here inside code tags. Too many users get driver build failures but never notice them. Also install inxi and provide the output of

Code: Select all
inxi -Fxxz

in code tags.

OK, have you installed followed the wiki to install bumblebee-nvidia and the rest of the packages yet?

https://wiki.debian.org/Bumblebee

If not, enable the contrib and non-free repositories and show the complete output in code tags of

Code: Select all
sudo apt-get install bumblebee-nvidia primus libgl1-nvidia-glx


(or as root if you don't have sudo)

For what it's worth, I just built keyboardvisualiser packages for my MSI GP63, so now I have my keyboard changing colors and flashing in sync with the bass line in the music I'm listening to, if you want to give that a try: https://forum.mxlinux.org/viewtopic.php?f=134&t=48977
I built the packages on generic Stretch in pbuilder, so they are compatible. You can see the settings I have in the gif (and the font problem)

after execute this command, i restart laptop, and when i'm trying to login it frozen, i can not do anything after that, just reboot
I like to install nvidia driver for the best resolution and to play Steam game ( CS:GO)

Can't help much if you don't copy and paste the text in the terminal that results from that command like I asked.

Of course, over on Stretch-based MX Linux, we have an Nvidia Driver Installer that detects Optimus systems and (we hope) sets up bumblebee-nvidia for you automatically, if you want to give that a try.
