I have a problem with starting ubuntu 10.10, i changed my graphics crad from an ATI card to a Nivida card a week or so ago (Machine has dual boot) iv sort out the windows install, but cant get into ubuntu to update the drivers.

It boots as far as console but just leaves me with the text screen.
How do i update the drivers from there or get a basic console screen to come up so i can update?

Many thanks

Did you disable, purge your previous drivers before trying to install the new ones?
