My computer boots to a black screen, what options do I have to fix it?

I installed ubuntu 11.04.

I can not install my nvidia Geforce 310m driver. I active it by Hardware Drivers (recomended) but it is not in use. I ran this command in terminal sudo nvidia-xconfig then restarted my computer.

My computer after restarting can not load login window and it is black. How can I solve this problem?

This looks like the same problem I had with 10.04. Check out my blog on how to solve this:
