    If anyone needs to know: What I had to do was uninstall and reinstall both xserver-xorg and xserver-xorg-core, which is something I'd never heard of. That makes me able to use the resolution 1024x768. My monitor is actually 1440x900 but good enough I guess.

    This morning when I logged in I was back to 600x800 and my "graphics" were "Gallium 0.4 on llvmpipe." I have no earthly idea what that is. I found some threads where people had had the same problem but no solutions, or at least none that I could understand. I uninstalled and reinstalled xserver-xorg and xserver-xorg-core again, and that brought back Vesa.
    Well, if your situation is no longer attached to the problem in the thread, I usually mark it as solved. Bit of a grey area, that.

    ...so...if your graphics card is dead, a) how do you know? and b) what are you using now?

    a) I don't, actually, I just know my system can't see it. I don't know how to tell, otherwise.
    b) Apparently, just Vesa. I don't really understand.

    Oh. Well, if you have no card-specific drivers, the card is probably alive and well (yay!), but the software isn't able to see it (boo...). You should be able to see it, however, in the output from

    Code:
    lspci
    I would (tentatively) suggest firing up the additional drivers utility again and seeing if the nouveau install works correctly this time (without the Nvidia driver remains)

    Huh. Okay, it looks like the GeForce 8300 is is still there, if I understand this, which I may not. I don't actually have the additional drivers utility, or it's not where it used to be. It's not in system settings. The software center says Additional Drivers *IS* installed. Where, I don't know.

    PS. http://www.geforce.com/drivers is unable to detect it, but apparently only scans Windows.

    Yup, your card is still there.

    It's not in system settings anymore (I've no idea why; for some reason they moved it), it's now under 'software sources', under the 'additional drivers' tab.

    Re: Gtk-CRITICAL fails, login loop

    I found it in Synaptic Package Manager. It says I'm already using Nouveau, though. And it does see my driver, although today I'm stuck with this Gallium thing again.

    Applying Nvidia-173, as that was the last one that actually worked for me.

    ETA: Well, that didn't work. Nvidia-xconfig worked. Restarted X and was back to blank screen after login. X was hanging at "LOADING EXTENSION NV-CONTROL." I removed and reinstalled xserver-xorg and xserver-xorg-core because I didn't have any better ideas. So I'm back with Vesa, the Nvidia settings utility is gone, and I have the wrong resolution. I feel like maybe I'm missing part of X. I'm not messing with this anymore today. Having this working at all is a huge step up! I don't like having to remove and reinstall xserver-xorg and -core every time but it's better than nothing.

    I'm afraid you've got to the end of what I know about this part of Ubuntu; sorry what I do know hasn't helped. Why you have a gallium driver is beyond me; I was under the impression that gallium was for AMD cards.

    I *think* that nouveau uses Gallium/llvmpipe as a software renderer for GeForce cards where hardware acceleration is not enabled/supported
