I tried installing drivers (multiple versions) using this tutorial https://www.mvps.net/docs/install-nvidia-drivers-ubuntu-18-04-lts-bionic-beaver-linux/

I also tried using ubuntu-drivers autoinstall and removing any drivers before using sudo apt purge nvidia* (I ensured none drivers were there when typed dpkg -l | grep nvidia)

If I have Hybrid graphics enabled in BIOS, I can see valid nvidia-smi output, however laptor uses integrated graphics card Intel® UHD Graphics 630 (Coffeelake 3x8 GT2)

If I set Discrete graphics card, the nvidia-smi returns

NVIDIA-SMI has failed because it couldn't communicate with the NVIDIA driver. Make sure that the latest NVIDIA driver is installed and running.

and also in nvidia-settings I see only blank page. How should I please set up nvidia driver?

The manual installation of nvidia drivers worked for me. I hope it helps you! See: Installing NVIDIA drivers for Ubuntu 18.04 – moosee333 May 22 at 1:45
