Bug Description

I'm using a laptop lenovo thinkpad T410 with intel graphics and egpu + GTX 1050. (using expresscard or mini pcie both failed)
When I install the 390 driver my graphical display fails. I know that egpu is not the best solution but for some people it works.

I tried:
390, 396, 384 nvidia drivers from ppa and from NVIDIA (.run)
Ubuntu and Xubuntu (18, 17, 16) using gdm3 and lightgdm
blacklist nouveau and everything similar

Sometimes Ubuntu 18.04 freeze using live usb.
