Ask Ubuntu is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers. It's 100% free, no registration required.

I had to install the latest drivers because they don't show up in the additional drivers list in the software & updates app. I followed the instructions, installed it from the terminal while logged out of my user, I did a sudo reboot and now

drum roll

Ubuntu is selected at the grub loader, I hear the computer doing its magic, but I just stare at a blinking cursor.

What is up with this? I am completely lost, I mean this is my third visit to askubuntu today.

BTW I am in ubuntu 13.04 64bit and the drivers were for an Nvidia 670

why do I do this to myself? I have windows AND mac, but I insist on punishing myself to run things in linux... –  Josh Jun 9 '13 at 23:07
    
reinstalled the 319.23 nvidia driver, back to the blinking cursor. –  Josh Jun 10 '13 at 0:01
    
Probably not correct driver? Just guessing because I am not sure. Did the computer work when you didn't have the driver? –  DaboRoss Jun 10 '13 at 1:12
