I have noticed the same thing. I am running on 16.04 with the HWE 17.10 kernel and monitor works. I installed the bionic 4.14.0-17 kernel and I was able to still use the laptop display. I tried the latest Bionic kernel (4.15.0-13) and it does not work. During testing on another bug (LP:1738263) I tested Artful with the Bionic kernel 4.15.0-10 and everything appeared to be working normally with the exception that DKMS failed to build the NVIDIA modules due to not being compatible with the the header files. However, when you install anything newer, the display fails to stay on past the GRUB menu.

I have tried nouveau.modeset=0 and nomodeset boot options to no avail. I was able to finally install Bionic by hooking up the laptop to a projector, but after a reboot, the laptop display still did not work and I had to set the account to autologin otherwise I could not login to the laptop. I then install openssh-server so that I could ssh into the laptop and I installed the nvidia-390 drivers from ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa which installed, but still no local display. In Artful, I could install with the nouveau.modeset=0 and then installing the proprietary NVIDIA drivers and everything (except touchpad, LP: 1738263) worked. lspci shows the graphics card and NVIDIA card, and lsmod does show that before NVIDIA drivers install, it is using nouveau, asus_wmi, and i915 for graphcis, and once NVIDIA drivers are install, lsmod only shows i915 and asus_wmi for graphics while nvidia is used for gpu and 3D, but still no display on the laptop. lsmod_prenvidia.txt shows the nouveau driver and the /proc/cmdline lsmod_nvidia.txt shows nvidia drivers installed and the /proc/cmdline lspci.txt shows the detected hardware lshw.txt shows the hardware in the laptop. Please let me know if you need any other information.
