What are you trying to do? Is it a laptop/desktop? What video card do you have and what actual issues arise? – Lekensteyn May 29 '12 at 8:14

sudo apt-get purge

This command completely removes a package and the associated configuration files. Configuration files residing in ~ are not usually affected by this command.

This command should do the job just fill in nvidea-xserver. Command below.

sudo apt-get purge nvidea-xserver
