Bug Description

I am running Ubuntu 19.10 with NVIDIA Geforce 310. Output of `lspci | grep "VGA"`:

01:00.0 VGA compatible controller: NVIDIA Corporation GT218 [GeForce 310] (rev a2)

I installed Ubuntu from USB with "install third party graphics" enabled and auto login turned off. When the computer restarted, I get the Gnome login screen but after login its just a black screen. Once I get the black screen, the computer is unusable (cannot even open another TTY) and I have to hard reboot the system. However when I get to the login screen I can open TTY2 and then if I `sudo apt remove nvidia*` then I can restart and use Nouveau drivers.

I have tried disabling Wayland but if I reinstall the drivers at any point using `sudo ubuntu-drivers autoinstall` then I have the same issue again
