I recently had a problem with the nvidia-340xx. I would only get a blank screen with no
being started. I did not check the logs I just did what has worked for me in the past.
1. dnf erase *nvidia*
2. reboot (You could either boot to gui using nouveau or multi-user mode)
3. dnf install akmod-nvidia-340xx (In your case akmod-nvidia-304xx
