I tried installing Nvidia driver through three different following methods :

Using PPA :

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:graphics-drivers/ppa
sudo ubuntu-drivers autoinstall
sudo apt install nvidia-418


Through Nvidia site directly :

 downloaded the display driver for Linux from
 https://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/138279/en-us

 chmod +x NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64–410.57.run


 sudo ./NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64–410.57.run –no-x-check

Along with Cuda

Using sudo apt-get install cuda

 

***********

In all cases the result is same and the system would not boot and gets stuck at the error mentioned before .

 Any help is much appreciated!!!
