if you're at a console, and have logged on YES, run those commands .. one line at a time, and in sequence.

Let me know when you've run those.



Here they are again .. for clarity:

sudo nvidia-settings --uninstall
sudo apt-get remove --purge nvidia*
sudo apt-get remove --purge xserver-xorg-video-nouveau xserver-xorg-video-nv
sudo apt-get install nvidia-common
sudo apt-get install xserver-xorg-video-nouveau
sudo apt-get install --reinstall libgl1-mesa-glx libgl1-mesa-dri xserver-xorg-core
sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg

just carry on with the next one .. we'll remove xorg.conf before rebooting.

Any other errors .. do what you just did .. ie.stop and tell me what the error was.

if they all finish without error .. do NOT reboot yet .. just let me know.

the error from the first, was:

invalid commandline please run 'nvidia-settings --help' for usage information

and I run the help, but i can't see all the choices because it shows them so fast and in the end i can't scroll

OK, let's do these one at a time .. ignore the first command and run:

sudo apt-get remove --purge nvidia*

any errors ?
