I did try it, and it didn't work. Little did I know what by setting nomodeset before installing the nvidia drivers removes nomodeset. So this time, I installed nvidia first, then set nomodeset and it worked! Thanks for the help!

I get the blank screen after the grub menu when I select Ubuntu. The grub screen only appears after the first attempt, I get no grub at the first attempt, the grup screen automatically appears when I restart the blank screen.

Plus my computer is about 5 years old, I don't think it has secureboot. But I'll have a double check in the morning.
