I was unable to install the Nvidea GTX1050t driver on my Ubuntu 16.04 machine, by following Nvidia's "instructions".
I would appreciate any advice and help resolving this issue.

You can install nvidia drivers via apt.
Fist remove all not working drivers
sudo apt-get purge nvidia-*
Then add the repository for the drivers
sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa
sudo apt-get update
Then install the actual drivers
sudo apt-get install nvidia-384
I had problem with
gdm3 so if the drivers still do not work and you are getting a black screen try installing
