After doing prime-select nvidia, blank freeze screen after login

I have GTX1650 GPU on my hp laptop. When I initially dual-booted the laptop, both intel CPU, as well as Nvidia GPU, were working fine.

Now when I want to transfer onto Nvidia, I do prime-select Nvidia, then after reboot, it displays login page, I enter the password and the system FREEZES, the cursor remains visible with no movement. When I restart by the power button, and go to the terminal from the login page and select intel and reboot, it again works fine.

This is my bug-report: nvidia-bug-report.log (835.2 KB)

nvidia-settings gives:

  1. I have secure boot disabled.
  2. I have no blacklist file.

You seem to have an xorg.conf in place but it wasn’t in the logs.
Please post the output of
ls /etc/X11 /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d
and attach the xorg.conf if you find it, or rather remove it.

Thanks a lot for such fast reply!
ls /etc/X11 /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d

$ ls /etc/X11 /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d
ls: cannot access '/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d': No such file or directory

This is xorg.conf file (just changed its extension so that it can be uploaded)

I deleted that xorg.conf file and now the GPU is working. Thanks a lot!!
