You got that right! LOL! I did mean 10.04.4!

Today I could not get into Precise: it would allow me to enter my password and "start" to begin the login process and after 2 seconds back to the login screen.
I had gone by Paddy's workaround to install the most current nvidia driver:
1) Login to recovery.
2) Select root console and enter:
Today what saved me was root console and entering nvidia-installer --uninstall which totally got rid of the driver.
mount --options remount,rw /
Then I could select one from SPM and I got it back. Whew! I thought I lost it but, it seems there is almost always a way to fix it.
The more experience you have, the more options you have.
