George, thank you for reporting this and helping make Ubuntu better.

1) Regarding the version of the nvidia drivers you attempted to use, it
appears you are using an upstream or 3rd party version. Could you please
mention where you obtained the driver from?

2) Could you please install a supported version of the nvidia driver
found at and
advise to the results?

3) Do you have this issue if you don't install a proprietary nvidia

4) To advise, when attaching logs, please don't snip/grep/cut logs.
Attach logs in their entirety from the first entry of a boot to when the
issue is reproducible. Developers can't work with snips.
