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

I updated my Nvidia graphics driver. It was version 304. Now it boots up to the loading screen and then it goes completely black. The computer is still running just no screen.

I need help to get the screen back on. I don't care if I loose all of my personal stuff. I just need it to work

Materials I have:

  • One dysfunctional laptop running 12.04 LTS 64bit
  • One desktop PC running windows 7 64bit
  • A USB drive and time
