As you can assume things aren't running smoothly anymore. Chrome and Firefox are functional but freeze up very easily, steam won't open any graphical interface and thunderbird freezes upon updating emails.
Here is the guide i followed: http://www.dedoimedo.com/computers/u...al-nvidia.html
I've got a nvidia geforce 9800 gt. Dual booting windows 7 and ubuntu 12.04.
I've restarted my computer and am posting this from windows 7. I have no sort of back up of my ubuntu install.
I'd post the screenshot of terminal right before executing sudo /etc/init.d/lightdm restart but unfortunately i can't upload it to imgur without my browser freezing. I got an error from one of the previous commands but i don't remember what it was. Clearly it didn't defer me from blindly pressing on.
So should i cut my losses and reinstall ubuntu?
And yes I'm an idiot.
