#StackBounty: #18.04 #nvidia #ubuntu-drivers #gpu-drivers black screen after nvidia driver installation after upgrade to 18.04

Bounty: 100

after upgrading my machine to 18.04 from 16.04 I noticed that my Nvidia driver is no longer installed and after I reinstalled the driver I’m getting a black screen I’ve got such a problem before and fixed it with manually installing the Nvidia driver instead of using autoinstall or apt-get install nvidia (number goes here).
i’ve tried all the method of installation mentioned here
and read almost all topic about this problem on askubuntu , its almost 2 weeks now and i’m unable to find a solution to this problem
