Hi, it's working for most of us humans out there, BUT.. some machines may freeze I've stumbled upon. But only a few cases..

Try booting with the parameters:
edd=off irqpoll


and if not that works, try adding the parameter "acpi=off" as a last addition to those too and report back :)

I have disabled the nouveau driver, which fixed the problem should i enable and try that? if so , let me know how to enable it back since i did it using the instructions under Installing NVIDIA drivers on Kali Documentation Page

sed 's/quiet/quiet nouveau.modeset=0/g' -i /etc/default/grub
update-grub
reboot

Ok! No then you found your problem mister! You are NOT the only one having problems with NVISIA drivers on Linux btw.. that one can be a struggle, which i don't know the solution for. Thanks for letting me know sir!
