Same problem on my ASUS GL703VD. I tried the 18.04 beta today starting a live session with the suggested boot option (modprobe.blacklist=nouveau). I can work using an external monitor connected to the HDMI interface. The laptop display become black during the boot just after few seconds but I can see the boot progress on the external monitor.
The system works fine with Ubuntu 17.10 with the old kernel 4.13.0-38-generic. I tried the new kernel 4.16 with ubuntu 17.10 from the mainline repository but the problem is the same: black laptop screen during boot, external HDMI monitor working. -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu-X, which is subscribed to xserver-xorg-video-nouveau in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/1761261 Title: nouveau/nvidia drivers do not work with display in Bionic on Asus GL703VD Laptop To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/nvidia-graphics-drivers-390/+bug/1761261/+subscriptions _______________________________________________ Mailing list: https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-x-swat Post to : firstname.lastname@example.org Unsubscribe : https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-x-swat More help : https://help.launchpad.net/ListHelp
