Ubuntu startup stuck on black screen with /dev/nvme0n1p2: clean

so I just bought a new laptop and used a bootable usb to install ubuntu 18.04 os on it. I was able to go through the install (although the touchscreen and touchpad didnt work I was able to use the keyboard to go through) and this seemed to work fine. After installing and plling out bootable usb and restarting, the message /dev/nvme0n1p2: clean, 137978/31227904 files, 3766150/124895488 blocks and it gets stuck there. I looked around and couldnt find anything that worked. The only thing I believe I have done to change my computers settings is switching from RAID SATA to AHCI SATA, but this didnt work I also tried reinstalling ubuntu after this switch but now ubuntu install gets stuck on the startup with the logo and dots underneath it. I also used a command (i dont remember it exactly, it was like sudo apt (something) nvidia*) to remove nvidia drivers, this also did not work.

Could anyone give me some advice, I would be very happy if I could get my new laptop working again.
