After installing NVidia graphics, I am facing a strange issue. I had my external display connected when the drivers installed. And now my Primary display is gone. When I disconnect the external display, nothing comes up on the primary display of my laptop.

However, when I have display2 connected, I can see the login screen and everything works.

What might I be doing wrong? I'm seeing something like this: https://imgur.com/gallery/78Wczrh

Go to settings>display and try fixing your displays there. This may just be a nvidia driver issue or an issue with elementary OS. If the above does not work, open a bug in the elementary Github repository.
