when i updated my nvidia driver to 295.40 Unity is not working any more i just get a black screen and nothing happens although Unity 2D and gnome classic are working fine so i think it's a problem with 3D how can i go back to 295.33 driver?

nvidia GeForce 7025 / nForce 630a

To uninstall current driver: Go to aditional drivers and click uninstall If you can not uninstall in this way, try:

sudo apt-get --purge remove nvidia-*

Then download the version of the driver you want from internet and double click to install it.
