Okay now that I have the driver installed we're back to square one, WTH?! I'm going to try uninstalling and or nuking all NVIDIA drivers again and then trying the 470 driver and seeing if that works.

Sometimes, using a Timeshift snapshot is faster than troubleshooting issues. It can be less frustrating too, especially if you know you have your personal files backed up.

That's the neat thing, I don't. Okay maybe it's not that neat but most of my files are on a secondary drive. Also I'm going to be investing in an AMD Radeon rx 6900 xt. I'm sick and tired of all the Nvidia issues.

FINAL UPDATE!
The machine is now fully functional, I just need to keep in mind that on startup mouse/keyboard will not work for 10-15 minutes.
thank you for the help SMG and I hope that(in the nicest way) I won't have to come back to the forums seeking help for the foreseeable future!
I promise that I will not touch drivers until a major version change or an incompatibility arises.
