Latest kernel breaks Nvidia and won't launch

I recently ran a Dnf Upgrade/Install and it resulted in my Nvidia drivers malfunctioning, being that my multiple displays were no longer recognized and my desktop environment (cinnamon) was forced into software rendering. I ran nvidia-settings to try and fix the problem and rebooted, now the boot screen is a blank cursor after grub selection and I can't input anything or drop to a shell, F1/2/3/4 does nothing also. For now I've reverted to the previous kernel installation which still works fine but Im not sure what the problem is and I would like to fix it.

Thank you for any assistance

Latest kernel breaks Nvidia and won't launch

I recently ran a Dnf Upgrade/Install and upgraded my kernel to 4.11.8-200.fc25.x86_64 and it resulted in my Nvidia drivers malfunctioning, being that my multiple displays were no longer recognized and my desktop environment (cinnamon) was forced into software rendering. I ran nvidia-settings to try and fix the problem and rebooted, now the boot screen is a blank cursor after grub selection and I can't input anything or drop to a shell, F1/2/3/4 does nothing also. For now I've reverted to the previous kernel installation which still works fine but Im not sure what the problem is and I would like to fix it.

NOTE that my NVIDIA installation method was through RPMFusion I ran nvidia-settings to try and fix the problem and rebooted, now the boot screen is a blank cursor after grub selection and I can't input anything or drop to a shell, F1/2/3/4 does nothing also.
