I’ve followed this post

The 450 series still has some bugs. Unless you have a compelling reason to upgrade to the 450 series, you’re better off reverting to the 440 series, but as the GeForce GTX 1050 Ti Mobile is fully supported on 440, I can’t see any compelling reasons, so:

  • log into the TTY

  • Execute:

    sudo mhwd --remove pci video-nvidia-450xx
    sudo mhwd --install pci video-nvidia-440xx
    sudo reboot

(or video-hybrid-intel-nvidia-440xx-prime if you are/were on that one)
