Black screen on boot after installing any NVIDIA driver on UBUNTU 20 on AW15

I installed ubuntu 20 on my AW15 r3. After installation it got stuck on a black screen after boot with the blinking underscore, I was able to make the graphics work by removing NVIDIA driver.

I tried to install different NVIDIA drivers from 435 - 450 to see which one would work and none did.

Now I’m stuck with a linux machine with a 1280x1024 reso and can’t go to suspend mode, because display won’t turn on again.

Attached was my last attempt to install a drive. I got stuck in the black screen again so I removed NVIDIA driver after generating the report.

Help would be greatly appreciated. I am learning to love ubuntu as a development machine.
