It could be a backlight issue. I tried with the latest daily-build
(April 16, 2018) and I boot up with the nouveau.modeset=0 kernel param
and it shows the splash screen, and then I hear the login sound, and if
I turn off the lights in my office and look closely, I can see the
display, but it looks like the backlight for the screen is not lit. I
tried adjusting the brightness using the FN+F7/F8 (Which adjust
brightness) and they don't work (They don't work on any other
distribution/Release as well. Only things that work are volume control
and Projector options).

nouveau/nvidia drivers do not work with display in Bionic on Asus
Status in nvidia-graphics-drivers-390 package in Ubuntu:
Status in xserver-xorg-video-nouveau package in Ubuntu:
Tried to install Bionic Desktop on my Asus GL703VD ROG Laptop with
NVIDIA GTX 1050M Video Card (with i915 Intel graphics card when not
using 3D) and the installer does not display. 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.
