Today I tried to activate the newer experimental drivers and both 304 and 310 failed to even install. So I tried the regular nvidia driver 295.40 for the 20th time today (I had lag issues and was testing Nouveau vs Nvidia with dual monitor and Unity2D-3D)
Within my tty1 I tried to remove nvidia:
sudo apt-get remove nvidia-settings nvidia-current and purge too
lshw -c video displayed nvidia as my driver I tried
sudo rm /etc/X11/xorg.conf since I read ubuntu would "reset" the GUI conf but
So next I tried
sudo jockey-text --disable=xorg:nvidia_current
And nothing has worked...
