comment Ubuntu stops using Nvidia driver after kernel upgrade
@Goddard I didn't encounter any of those problems when installing nvidia-current. Rather, the 2 errors were encountered when installing linux-headers-3.5.0-19-generic, and then another one when running sudo modprobe nvidia. However, the Nvidia driver now works, but I'm left curious if those messages imply something was broken.

Ok, so I removed & re-installed nvidia-current, then re-ran sudo modprobe nvidia, & it now works. I'm using the 304.51.really.304.43-0ubuntu1 too. I briefly tested the video playback again, & it appears to be working much better.

With headers installed & running sudo mobprobe nvidia, I get error FATAL: Module nvidia_current not found. ALso, when running sudo /etc/init.d/*dm restart` it reports that no module was found for running the kernel. Upon restart it returns to it's previous state, then I had to switch back to the Nouveau driver, to fix it for now.

Thanks, very good suggestion, but I kinda love having the latest kernel/stuff, so I'll stick to the Nouveau driver.

Thanks, it works now. But I prefer the Nvidia driver, as I've had slight issues with the third party one in the past; but it works nonetheless, until they provide an update.
