I have an Asus ROG GL703VD and have a similar issue. The display shows the ROG display, then flashes purple for a second (Grub menu splash before the Ubuntu splash logo, which doesn't display on the laptop, but does on the HDMI display) then goes blank and never comes online. Even pressing CTRL+ALT+F1-6 does not switch between virtual terminals on the laptop display, it does shift on the mirrored HDMI display. The only way to get a display is to hook up a monitor to the HDMI port and then logging in and setting the display to mirror mode. In fact, this is the only way to install Bionic on the device as even booting the install media with nouveau blacklisted doesn't work. In previous releases, running nouveau.modeset=0 would bring up the display properly and then you could install, but with Bionic, this is does not work. Also, installing the Bionic kernel in Xenial or Artful creates the same condition for those releases. I have looked at the logs and settings everywhere, and from what I can tell everything appears to be loading properly. Gnome sees both displays when connected, but the laptop display remains black.

I've been using the nvidia-384 driver with no problem for a while. Today I issued "sudo apt-get upgrade" and I was prompted to upgrade the nvidia driver to the nvidia-390. After installing the driver and rebooting, I was only able to boot in to the tty terminal. The graphical display failed to boot. I have had similar problems with nvidia driver version 390 with Arch Linux and with Open Suse Tumbleweed.
