So I recently installed Ubuntu (haven't used it since Natty Narwhal) to take advantage of Valves new Proton/Steam play advancements. According to guides online, to be able to use Proton I need to be using the proprietary Nvidia driver 396. So I attempted to install it as follows:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa
sudo apt update
sudo apt install nvidia-driver 396
sudo nvidia-xconfig
sudo reboot
After reboot I was left at a blank screen unable to do anything. The caps and num lock lights were not responding on my keyboard and plugging the monitor directly into my motherboard showed nothing as well. I had to enter recovery mode and purge the Nvidia drivers. I tried installing the driver from the Software & Updates interface and had the exact same problem. I've scoured the internet since yesterday and haven't been able to find anything that works. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
