I'm new to Ubuntu and linux in general, but I know a few things. I've tried doing basically everything I've seen online: videos, similar questions in here, etc.

I first tried using Additional Drivers and installed the proprietary driver (nvidia-384) and once I did, I rebooted and I got a black screen with a flashing white text. So, I've uninstalled all nvidia drivers by using (apt-get purge nvidia*) and kept trying, and doing the same process over and over again with every driver showing under additional drivers. Not only have I used the Additional Drivers, but I've manually tried doing it in terminal, and nothing worked. Any suggestions? Thanks. Oh and I'm also running Ubuntu 17.10.

Here's what my Additional Drivers look like: enter image description here
