Bug Description

Ubuntu 17.10, Nvidia drivers installed (official package nvidia-384).
Computer: HP laptop: HP 14-008nf (with graphics: integrated + NVidia Geforce 940mx)

Sometimes when i reboot the Ubuntu login screen is reversed, all the screen is upside down, then just rebooting without changing anything and it's back to normal...but not all the time (sometimes after booting to Windows also, cause i have dual boot)
