Take a look at

and try booting with "nomodeset"

and maybe try disabling any graphics stuff in /etc/default/grub
(needs running 'update-grub' after editing)


You can try to forcibly move the nouveau module away:

dpkg-divert --rename /lib/modules/4.3.0-1-amd64/kernel/drivers/gpu/drm/nouveau/nouveau.ko

(that's the "friendly" way, it tells apt about the rename, and apt will respect
it on kernel upgrades (as long as it stays in the same path, i.e. until you upgrade to
4.4 or an ABI bump for 3.3 happens (the ABI version is the '1' in '4.3.0-1-amd64'))

To undo this later on use

dpkg-divert --remove --rename /lib/modules/4.3.0-1-amd64/kernel/drivers/gpu/drm/nouveau/nouveau.ko

Then rebuild the initramfs (update-initramfs -u) just in case ...
any maybe while rebooting you find something that complains that it cannot load the nouveau module
Thereafter (hopefully) the nvidia module should be loadable.

There are no modules depending on nouveau (good!), this is just
the list of the things nouveau depends on.
