Laptop: Memory - 7.7 GiB Processor - Intel® Core™ i5-7300HQ CPU @ 2.50GHz × 4 OS Type - 64-bit Graphics - Intel® HD Graphics 630 (Kaby Lake GT2) / Intel® HD Graphics 630 (Kaby Lake GT2) GNOME - Version 3.24.2 Disk - 242.4 GB SSD

Laptop is an Acer Nitro 5 model no. AN515-51-56U0 and it says it has Nvidia GEFORCE GTX 1050.

After update, reboot shows the F symbol appears, then the screen goes dark, and many messages go by then stops loading. We didǹt get that message to copy where we could get at it. Will try again to see if we can get a picture with a camera. In any event it never progresses to the login screen. The data above is from the original installation, and as you can see it doesǹt find the NVIDIA chip.

Edit: Here are more details, starting with the information I pulled from the lsmod command, then lspci.

Can you Ctrl-Alt-F2 and login to a tty console as root? if so, post lsmod and lspci in your question, so we can see if it sees the hardware.

No unfortunately that doesn't appear to let me do anything either. After hitting ctrl-alt-F2 this is what I'm met with: https://imgur.com/d6pqvIs (Apologies for the mildly poor photo quality.) I'm afraid I can't move past that point.

hit e when the grub menu loads, put nomodeset=0 on linux command line, and then Ctrl-X to start. After it boots, and give a lowrez gui, go to terminal and type lspci and lsmod.

Either I've done it wrong, or that doesn't seem to work, because I still get the same messages as shown in the previous screen shot when I hit ctrl-alt-f2, and continue to freeze after I login to my account. In either case, I may need a more detailed, step-by-step explanation to do what you're suggesting, because I admit I'm still relatively new to using Fedora, so it's certainly possible I've not done what you've suggested properly.

at the grub menu, that shows choices for booting, press E and an edit window opens that has the linux command line on it. look for the word quiet on the command line, put the cursor after quiet and type nomodeset=0 and be sure that there is a space after quiet and the 0 then hit Ctrl-X to run the modified command. that should force whatever video driver is active to run a common low resolution graphical interface. if that does not work, you may need to consider a hardware problem as the issue.
