    You can reinstall with apt-get by doing
    apt-get install --reinstall (package)

    Re: Failed to load NVIDIA kernel module!

    This is also happen to me.

    In Short, after you upgrade your Ubuntu from 9.10 to 10.04 The Driver only run on old kernel. You can solve this by simply choosing the previous kernel version. Choose from the very beginning when you start your machine.

    But this is not best solution I think because you still use the old kernel. If you upgrade your Ubuntu of course you also want to use the new kernel, right?

    You need to re-install the driver manually. I never install nVidia Driver from System > Administration > Hardware Drivers. I'd rather install it in 'Old Fashioned' way.

    This not only happen to nVidia Driver but also happen on VirtualBox. You also need to reinstall VirtualBox after upgrade to 10.04

    Here I wrote the step by step 'Old Fashioned' way, I also posted it on my Facebook. Unfortunately, it's still in Bahasa Indonesia (I am from Indonesia )

    Menginstall Driver VGA pada distro-distro Linux terkini seperti Ubuntu relatif cukup mudah. Asal ada koneksi internet yang baik, pengguna Ubuntu bisa menginstall melalui menu System > Administration > Hardware Drivers

    Di sini saya akan bahas menginstall driver VGA menggunakan cara tradisional. Dalam beberapa kasus, proprietary driver harus diinstall dengan cara ini. Misalnya jika tidak memiliki koneksi internet, distro Linux nya tidak memiliki fasilitas menginstall proprietary driver yang mudah, atau mungkin ingin mencoba driver versi terbaru yang biasanya kurang up to date jika menggunakan fasilitas di menu System > Administration > Hardware Drivers

    Cara ini memang ruwet terutama bagi pengguna Linux yang masih seperti saya.

    Download


    Jika tidak memiliki koneksi internet, langkah ini bisa dilewati. Mendapatkan driver nya bisa minta copy teman yang punya atau download dari warnet lalu disimpan di USB Flash Disk.



    1. Kunjungi http://www.nvidia.com/

    2. Pilih USA/Canada

    3. Pilih Download Drivers
    4. Pilih jenis VGA yang Anda pasang.

    5. Pilih Operating System Linux. Gunakan Linux 64-bit JIKA DAN HANYA JIKA Anda menggunakan Linux versi 64-bit. Ingat, Processor 64 bit bukan berarti Linux yang Anda gunakan juga 64 bit.

    6. Pilih Language English (US)

    7. Klik Search

    8. Klik Download dan simpan pada Home Directory Anda supaya mudah dieksekusi

    Install

    1. Logout. Ohh ya, disarankan komputer tetap terhubung dengan internet selama proses instalasi ini.

    2. Dari Login page, pindah ke terminal dengan menekan CTRL ALT F6 (boleh F1 sampai F6)

    3. Login sebagai root atau boleh juga sebagai user biasa jika account root di disable

    4. Matikan Display Manager. Caranya:



    Jika Anda menggunakan GNOME (contoh distro GNOME: Ubuntu, Fedora, Debian dan sejenisnya) ketik perintah



    /etc/init.d/gdm stop



    Jika menggunakan KDE (contoh distro KDE: OpenSuSE, Slackware, KUbuntu dan sejenisnya) ketik perintah



    /etc/init.d/kdm stop



    Tambahkan perintah sudo di depannya jika Anda login sebagai user biasa, Contoh perintahnya jadi begini:



    sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop



    atau



    sudo /etc/init.d/kdm stop

    tekan Enter lalu masukan password Anda.



    5. Eksekusi Driver yang sudah diunduh tadi dengan perintah:



    sh NamaFileDriver

    Contoh:

    sh NVIDIA-Linux-x86_64-260-19-12.run

    Tambahkan sudo di depan perintahnya jika Anda login sebagai user biasa.



    6. Baca License Agreement lalu tekan OK, pencet enter-enter saja ikuti petunjuknya. Selama proses instalasi Program akan mendetect apakah ada driver versi lain yang sudah terinstall, jika ada dia akan meng-uninstall-nya terlebih dahulu lalu Program akan mencoba untuk mendownload kernel interface dari situs nVidia (ini kenapa saya sarankan agar komputer tetap terhubung dengan internet). Jika tidak terhubung dengan internet Program akan mencoba mengkompilasi kernel interface sendiri (hati-hati ini sering gagal!). Lalu kemudian baru Program menginstall drivernya.



    7. Setelah proses instalasi selesai. Anda akan ditanya apakah Anda ingin dibuatkan konfigurasi xorg.conf ? Jika Anda rasa settingan layar monitor sudah benar sebaiknya jawab No Karena dari pengalaman saya konfigurasi xorg.conf buatannya malah bikin settingan layar monitor jadi ngaco.



    8. Restart komputer dengan mengetikan perintah:



    shutdown -r now



    Tambahkan sudo seperti biasa jika Anda login sebagai user biasa.


    Langkah Terakhir

    Langkah terakhir tentu mencoba driver yang sudah diinstall, apakah berjalan dengan baik?

    Jika ternyata setelah install driver settingan layar monitor Anda malah jadi ngaco (misal: resolusi terlalu kecil atau terlalu besar, posisi salah, warna ngaco, dll) mungkin Anda bisa gunakan settingan xorg.conf punya saya yang bisa di download di sini http://ubuntuone.com/p/BDV/ dan Taruh file itu pada /etc/X11/

    Masih bingung? Silahkan tulis di komentar jika ada yang ingin ditanyakan
    Taruh file itu pada /etc/X11/


    Maybe tomorrow or someday I will translate it to English. If you are in hurry you can use Google Translate.

    Re: Failed to load NVIDIA kernel module!

    Okay, after an update my system is stuffed. The 3 kernels I've got to choose from in Grub all do the same thing, I get this error:

    (EE) NVIDIA: Failed to load the NVIDIA kernel module.
    Please check your
    (EE) NVIDIA: system's kernel log for additional error
    messages.
    (EE) Failed to load module "nvidia" (module-specific error, 0)
    (EE) No drivers available.

    I've tried recovery mode, the system gets to a point and then just hangs, I can't boot from a CD because it start loading, gets to the purple screen with Ubuntu 10.04, screen goes black, system hangs. I can't get into a terminal to try anything. I'm typing this from windows, I dislike Windows with a passion, but it's currently working! Please be gentle with me, I'm really not very good at command line stuff, (if I can actually manage to get to a terminal session).

    Re: Failed to load NVIDIA kernel module!

    Hmm, you probably have the nouveau drivers loaded. Did not read through all the pages but could you try this:

    log out
    press control + alt + F1
    Log in to (text only terminal) and type the following commands:
    Code:
    sudo apt-get purge nvidia*
    sudo apt-get purge xserver-xorg-video-nv
    sudo apt-get purge xserver-xorg-video-nouveau
    sudo apt-get purge nouveau-firmware
    sudo nano /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    Now find a line with:
    Driver "nvidia"
    and replace nvidia with vesa
    Now save it with control + o -> enter and control + x to exit.
    (you might need a reboot here because the nouveau driver is persistent and still isn't unloaded)
    One more last command:
    Code:
    sudo service gdm start
    When you see your desktop you can either wait a while and see if the system detects nvidia drivers for you to install or press alt + F2, type jockey-gtk and click run.

    Thanks for everyone's input, I never would've solved this on my own.
    Do you mind sharing what steps you did to solve your problem?

    It's bad when people started something then never finish it.

    For me, I had the same issue on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, I solved the issue by installing nvidia-current package:

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install --reinstall nvidia-current
