Ubuntu 16.04 GTX1650 Ti login loop

Hi There,
I have a brand new laptop (Omen 15) which has nvidia GTX 1650 Ti.
Now, although I would have been happy to install Ubuntu 20.04 on it, we are a medical company and our environment currently runs on Ubuntu 16.04.
Now, as far as I could tell, only drivers version 450 onwards support the GTX 1650.
Unfortunately the PPA (https://launchpad.net/~graphics-drivers/+archive/ubuntu/ppa) does not have the 450 available for 16.04.

I have tried installing from the .run on the website, but that just leads me to an infinite loop of login.

I am happy to try and debug myself, but I have no clue where to begin.

Thank you,
