This happens to a lot of Nvidia users especially users of newer cards like the RTX series. If for example you are trying to boot and install Linux and you get a black and white grub2 screen instead of a nice graphical welcome installer, you probably suffer from this bug. It is normally followed by the user booting and finding they just have a blank/black screen.

In order to scroll up and down just hit "Ctrl+a+Esc" or "Ctrl+a+[" and then you can Pageup, Pagedown and using the arrow keys.........
This is a very weird, annoying and bizarre quirk with many distributions, especially Debian. The home and end keys don't work, but it's a simple fix as long as you found this article :)
You just have to edit /etc/inputrc:
Find the commented lines as shown below:
# "e[1~": beginning-of-line
