Bug Description

I'm trying to get 2nd video card to work GT710B Nvidia card. I'm trying everything that I can find on te Internet from Google. Lots of info - just can't seem to get it to work. Sometimes it has worked on other installations that I have done from scratch - just not from my main Ubuntu that I have been upgrading from 14.04, 16.04, 18.04 etc. not including a valid xorg.conf has helped in some situations. When I load the driver from Other Drivers, it loadsa, and ten doesn't sart up until I go into repair mode and delete the nvidia drives completely.
