Black screen after installing cuda toolkit (22.04 x86_64)

I've tried installing cuda toolkit 11.8 from a fresh install of ubuntu 22.04 x86_64 from the three different methods. Each of these results in a black screen on boot which is almost certainly caused by a driver issue. I've tried reverting to a previous kernel, blacklisting nouveau and nvidiafb, and restarting, but I'm still confronted with a black screen. I'm running an RTX 3090 if that is of interest.
