Just install 12.04.
It wanted to install the Nvidia drivers (geforce 6100) like in the past. This time after install the log in screen comes up I log in then the screen goes black! I've had trouble with Nvidia drivers for the past five years and its always the same.
How do I just use the generic drivers that come with Ubuntu and forget about Nvidia altogether?
I'll have to reinstall 12.04 and just ignore the driver pop up. Maybe the Ubuntu logo will show up on start up and shut down like it should. I'm sick of proprietory drivers! They are nothing but trouble.
