Hello i'm having an huge problem while installing Nvidia proprietary drivers on Fedora 24, i followed everything on https://www.unixmen.com/install-nvidi... and http://www.if-not-true-then-false.com... and even using the rpmfusion package, during installation cpu vent start to full throttle followed by a warning that thermal threshold have been exceeded at this point i close the laptop to avoid any damage. My computer is a RoG g750JX with ONLY the Nvidia 770M.

P.S. I'm installing the proprietary driver because without them i'm not able to manage screen backlight.

Wait — I don’t think the screen backlight have anything to do with graphics drivers. You may be trying to solve the wrong problem here.

Well it actually does... with nvidia drivers i'm able to manipulate screen backlight via xbacklight or by manual manipulating the brightness file located into /sys/class/backlight
