Linux Mint 19.2
I installed Mint about a month ago and had everything working fine. Was using the 430 Nvidia driver, had both monitors working properly. Patched a couple days ago and I can't seem to get the system to use hardware drivers again. I get the message "your system is currently running without video hardware acceleration". If I open driver manager, it says 1 proprietary driver is in use and it's has the 430 driver selected. I tried booting from an older kernel version but that didn't solve anything.
Some more info:

That output shows the nvidia driver, but Nvidia Settings doesn't show any monitors or other settings, and I can't get the second monitor detected in Displays. So something is off here but I'm not sure what.
