Default Nvidia drivers login loop plus flickering/blinking screen-Ubuntu 18.04 Linux

Got stuck in the login loop. I hard restarted the computer....went into the terminal and was having some path issues (I wanted to uninstall nvidia drivers). Ended up rebooting thru the terminal--it took me to the option of restarting in recovery mode, which I did. However, now when I try to go back into the terminal (ctl+alt+F3), the screen is blinking/flickering. So it is very difficult to enter in my username, not to mention the impossibility of typing in the password.

What can I do to fix this or at least get back into the terminal? I'll note that this all happened immediately after a MinIon run stopped, so if there's any way/need to do a backup, that would be great, too.

Also, if you have any permanent ways to fix the nvidia drivers--I'm all ears.

Can you login via ssh from another computer to avoid the flickering?

Is that something I would need to have already set up? I've never done that before.

It depends on the installation. On a mac laptop, open your terminal and
ssh username@IP.address (with your username and your server's IP address) and then give your password. On a PC/chromebook get a ssh chrome plugin and do the same.

I don't know our computer's IP address. Found directions for accessing it via the BIOs settings; however, I don't seem to have the IPMI configuration option & didn't manage to find it elsewhere. So maybe I can't do this since I've never set up remote access before? Do you know somewhere else where I could find my IP address (while I'm still "locked out?")?

Sorry, that's out of my area. Your IT support might know it if it is a static IP, or have a way to look it up from the jack if it is assigned.
