Problem with Nvidia Drivers on Dell Notebook (Gtx 1650, fedora 28)

Tried drivers 510.47.03, 470.94, and 470.86. On reboot the laptop hangs on bootup prior to getting to the login screen. This is the guide that I have been following to install the different drivers.
Another guide/method used was Howto/NVIDIA - RPM Fusion both yield similar results. Any ideas or suggestions to get the Nvidia driver working would be appreciated as hdmi and external monitors do not currently display.

UPDATE: The laptop display is stuck at the boot up page on the flip side the external display works as if everything is normal and am able to login.

I guess your internal display is driven by the amd/intel igpu and the F28 kernel is too old for it.
Please run as root and attach the resulting nvidia-bug-report.log.gz file to your post.

@generix Here is the bug report

F28 has kernel 5.0, for your Intel comet lake gpu you’ll need kernel 5.2 minimum, likely also some recent linux-firmware package. Any specific reason for using (outdated) F28?

Yeah, all of our code we run at work was compiled/built for it.

Please see this on how to switch to a mainline kernel:

Upgraded to Fedora 29 that solved the issue, thanks!
