I want to install Debian GNU / Linux 8 Jessie on the new MSI GL62 laptop but unfortunately I ran into problems with the drivers for the NVIDIA GeForce GTX950M and Intel HD Graphics 530 cards. I have two graphics cards in my laptop, actually a hybrid card. Here is the output of the lspci command:
I tried installing bumblebee but it resulted in Debian not starting up and ctrl + alt + f1-f7 not working. I don't know if it matters to do sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get upgrade && sudo apt-get dist-upgrade before installing drivers. I also tried to install the nvidia-driver package but it ended up crashing the X manager and it was showing me gnome that manager X had managed to get the X in order "oh no something has gone wrong". I am using the jessie / stable repositories. I also have jessie-backports repositories added. Here is my /etc/apt/sources.list file:

Would upgrading debian to testing help install drivers for the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 950M and Intel HD Graphics 530 cards? I tried to mess around in /etc/X11/xorg.conf but it didn't work. Anyone have any other ideas on how to install these drivers?
I would like to add that I upgraded the system to Debian Testing, installed closed drivers with sudo dpkg --add-architecture i386 && sudo apt-get update && sudo apt-get install bumblebee-nvidia primus primus-libs: i386 and changed the desktop environment to xfce. Unfortunately, there is a bug that shows [OK] Started X-Window Display Manager all the time. [OK] Started OpenBSD Secure Shell server. and there's nothing you can do about it. This is where the system starts up. The startx command did not work correctly.
It still doesn't work. I mean, the same thing is happening. Changing the desktop environment did nothing. I went back to the gnome. After logging in, the gnome has a black cursor on a gray background and you cannot move it or enter the tty and on xfce, what I described above continues.
I have completely reinstalled Debian. First I updated it to testing, then installed the nvidia drivers with the command
Log in, to see the code
then logged in from the Gnome on Wayland display manager. Unfortunately, other managers did not want to act. The X11 manager showed a black screen after logging in and Gnome and Gnome Classic showed a black cursor on a gray background and there was nothing to do about it. Only the Gnome on Wayland manager allowed me to use Debian normally.
