the whole story is like this. at first i had my nvidia gpu disabled at all by
bbswitch. then i decided to turn it on. reversed all actions from https://github.com/Bumblebee-Project/bbswitch and had my GPU back alive. then i decided to use bumblebee to optirun apps. i had no success, so i removed all of these installations and, as i think, fresh installed nvidia-435 from driver manager on Linux Mint 19.3. after reboot login screen is not appearing. from another tty(Ctrl+Alt+F1) i tried running
startx but it freezes. i hear login sound but the image is frozen on console. what may be wrong with all of this?
here’s some information

i still have this, although i apt purged all nvidia packages:
