comment After nvidia driver update screen is 640x480. How to undo?
For what it's worth, and I'm not sure why but I managed to get back my old screen resolution by doing the following: sudo apt-get purge xserver-xorg sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg xserver-xorg-video-all sudo reboot

When I run sudo apt-get install nvidia-current I get: "You do not appear to be using the NVIDIA X driver. Please edit your X configuration file (just run nvidia-xconfig as root), and restart the X server." I run nvidia-xconfig as root, but that just results in the same error.

When I ran sudo apt-get remove nvidia-current, I get:Package nvidia-current is not installed, so not removed. Same when I do sudo apt-get remove nvidia-current-updates. When I run sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-nouveau, i get "xserver-xorg-video-nouveau is already the newest version."

I've tried doing sudo apt-get remove nvidia-173, as well as removing the nvidia blacklist file in /etc/modprobe.d, but when I reboot I'm still running into the same issue.

Hmm I don't think it's a resolution issue. Either way, when I go to the Displays system page, the only resolution option I get is 640 x 480.

I did exactly as you said, but the problem is still there. I did install an nvidia driver (the 173 version). I've tried installing nouveau, but how can I make the OS actually use it?
