This question already has an answer here:
Right this is pretty much my own fault, I was trying to get steam to work and I had already tried all the experimental drivers so I decided to start from the beginning; I installed the first nvidia driver from the additional drivers menu. Ubuntu does not load.
If I launch from recovery mode the computer tells me that the drivers will not load until I reboot, and I get to log in through what appears to be a full screen terminal. I can ctrl-alt-f1 and ctrl-alt-f2 through and create different log ins.
I was wondering if someone could guide me through the process of uninstalling and installing a working driver from here, that is only IF that is the problem and I missed something completely.
I am running 12.04 on a acer aspire 6935 laptop, if more information is needed please ask away.
